A parenting tip: I think making kids read real life stories (prophets, sahaba, imaams, scholars, and other inspirations) is better than showing them fictitious story books which can addict them to more imaginative stories, to animated movies, to eventually real movies. I think connecting them to fiction is our first mistake. Let me know what you think.
Look at you! You are better than what you were before Ramadan. If not doing so good, you are not even doing so bad. You pushed yourself from something to being something better. You can be better and you can definitely do better than this. Before Ramadan ends, let's ponder on our efforts and evaluate them. Let's make a much better muslim out of ourselves.
The Muslim ummah is facing multiple challenges in living peacefully. The most dominating challenges for the community is internal disunity and response to anti-Islamic ideological war. In the grip of mixed emotions of love (for Islam) and anger, we forget the sunnah of behaving with a vision in adverse situations. The character our Prophet (sallelahu alaihi wasallam) gives us a good lesson to encounter our both internal and external challenges...from a glimpse from the seerah.
