Teaching Children Tawheed

This is a wonderful book for any parent to have in their library. 

Ibn 'Abbaas (radhi Allaahu anhu) said regarding the saying of Allaah Subhanahu wa ta'ala:  "And those who say: "Our Lord! Bestow on us from our wives and our offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and make us leaders and guides for the pious."
[Al-Furqaan (25):74]

"They mean: who will act in obedience towards You, so by them our eyes will become comforted in the dunyaa (the life of this world) and the Aakhirah (the Hereafter)."
(Tafseer at-Tabaree)

Abdullaah bin 'Umar (radhi Allaahu anhu) narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:  "Each one of you is a raa'ee (guardian), and each one of you is responsible for those under his charge. So the Imaam (Ruler) is a guardian and he is responsible for those under his care; a man is a guardian over his family and he is responsible for them; and a wife is a guardian over her husband's house and she is responsible (for it); a slave is a guardian for his master's wealth and property and he is responsible (for that). Beware! All of you are guardians and are responsible for those under his charge." 

An-Nawawee said: "The scholars have said that the raa'ee is the guardian, the one who is entrusted, the one committed to the goodness and well-being of what he is responsible for, and what is under his supervison.  So in it (this hadeeth) is that everyone who has something under his care and supervision, then it demands justice in it, and establishing what is beneficial to him in his Deen and his Dunyaa and those things related to him."
(Sharh Saheeh Muslim)

Educating Muslims

The other Islamic curriculum we use is  'Educating Muslims' .  Very well organised and simply laid out in a colourful way to attract children's attention. Please go to their website to take a look in the pages and see for yourself. My children love these books. (If anyone has purchased the teachers manuals I would be interested to know if it is worth buying this as well).

Just want to add that my photocopier is very well used, because if you have more than one child it can be very expensive to buy individual books for each child, so I just photocopy the pages and put them into their own folders.

Eemaan made easy series

I just thought I'd put some of the books that we use for our Islamic studies. It is the Eemaan made easy series by Muhammad al-Jibaly even though it is not advisable to take knowledge from this author in other works, this series does have the stamp mark of approval from the Salafi book store (Spubs) as shown in one of the pics. We also follow another curriculum for our Islamic studies and I will post them soon insha'Allaah.

In this series is:

Knowing Allah
Knowing the Angels
Knowing the Books and the Qur'aan
Knowing the Prophets and the Messengers
Knowing the Last Day
Believing in Qadar Allaah's Decree

This is the stamp from Salafibookstore (spubs). I'm sorry it has come out so small, I tried many times but I think the text in too tiny for my cell phone camera so this is what it says:
