SeekersGuidance Courses Winter 2011

Dear Seeker,

Since its introduction to the course catalog, this 12-week course on Islamic parenting has consistently proved our most popular, and it’s not difficult to see why. First, the myriad of contemporary opinions on the subject of parenting available to English-speaking Muslims was confusing, to say the least. Muslim parents would often find themselves asking what action would be most pleasing to Allah, and struggling to find clear answers amongst all of the sources.

Second, as Muslims, we realise the immense blessing that the opportunity to raise the next generation of believers is. Imparting children with God-consciousness, sound values, and proper manners is a trust from Allah, and therefore should not be taken lightly.

This course offers parents and guardians parenting advice based on the Qur’an and the Prophetic example (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Students study the classical text on Islamic parenting (Simt al-`Uqyan) by Imam Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Ramli, one of the leading authorities of the Shafi`i school in the tenth century AH, and its commentary by the Yemeni scholar Shaykh Abdullah ibn Ahmad Basudan. They will learn how to:

* Inculcate Islamic manners and the Prophetic character in their children
* Provide children with sound Islamic education
* Raise a spiritual child who loves Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him)
* Protect one’s children from negative influences, and
* Discipline children when necessary

Our course instructors — Shaykh Faraz Rabbani and Ustadha Shireen Ahmed — are currently raising and home-schooling their own three children in Toronto, Canada, and are therefore in the best position to address contemporary issues and challenges facing Muslim parents and educators in the West. Final lessons of this course will focus on this practical aspect of parenting. Highly recommended for those with children, those expecting a child, or those considering having children.

TESTIMONIAL: “I love the method of instruction and the live sessions Q&A opportunity and especially the forums. I was also able to use all of the material given as references including all the reading and viewing material (articles, video and audio, etc.) even after the course ended. Also the ability to download, and low cost.” (Fall 2009 Student)

“What would the Prophet do?” That is a question we often ask ourselves, but sometimes the answer is not clear to us.

The course is an explanation and contextualization of Shaykh `Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghuddah’s influential and celebrated book Islamic Manners.
