TOPICS:

Shaykh Abdul Aziz – Nurturing Children in Spiritual Growth

Few experiences in life are as simultaneously spiritually catalyzing and daunting as the experience of parenting. The sheer weight of the responsibility of cultivating the holistic growth of another human being at their most vulnerable and malleable age can never be overstated. Childrearing might perhaps be a skill that is best learnt by doing, but it is crucial to ground this learning curve with a solid understanding of the Prophetic guidelines to raising righteous children and nurturing their spiritual growth.

How is discipline understood in the context of children in Prophetic teachings? What are the methods the Prophet SAW taught us to instill adab in children? How can we raise mindful children in an age where the entitlement mentality seems to reign unquestioned? How does one best protect one’s children from the numerous spiritual pitfalls of the modern world without coddling them and falling into helicopter parenting.

Join us for this talk with Shaykh Abdul Aziz at SPOL 2018 to explore the different meanings, philosophies, and methodologies of Prophetic parenting.

Fara Zainal – Managing Expectations, Mindful Parenting

No parent would want to give their child anything less than the best when it comes to providing for them and bringing them up, but it is precisely for this reason that the realities of caregiving need to be discussed with a view to Islamic spirituality.

Herein lies a hidden truth: if Allah, in His Infinite Knowledge, has already arranged so meticulously for each life to encounter the best possible outcome at every turn, how could we in all our flaws hope to rely solely on ourselves and our own limited knowledge in becoming and embodying “The Good Parent”?

How does one come to terms with being granted a special needs child? How can a parent who is struggling with finances raise a child who understands that money isn’t everything? How does one divide love, care, and attention equally among all the children if some need more than others? Gratitude will liberate you from the enslavement of expectation, but how does one practice gratitude as an embodied state of mind, heart, and soul when caregiving becomes overwhelmingly difficult, or when one has just lost a child?
