Parenting is undeniably one of the most rewarding and simultaneously challenging experiences in this life. It is both a gift with unmeasured benefits, as well as an immense understanding and responsibility from God. Islamic parenting is centred in devotion to God and predicated entirely on Quranic and prophetic guidance - both of which are universal and timeless. In this course, we will cover some of the sunnah, and relate them to the most common and relevant parenting challenges of our time.
- Lesson 1: Intentional Parenting: the importance of preparedness and education before marriage and parenthood. Understanding parenting beyond commercialization, and seeing it as an act of worship for the sake of Allah. Seeking refuge in Allah often to align one’s intentions as a parent with God-consciousness and reliance on Him.
- Lesson 2: Prophetic Parenting: the importance of parents actively learning the seerah/sunnah and how to model their behavior after the Beloved. Creating a family culture devoted to every member of the family developing a strong character based on the prophetic model. Learning healthy communication skills from the prophetic model, which are designed to prevent miscommunication, hostility, and disrespect.
- Lesson 3: Balanced Parenting: the importance of parents understanding what Islamic parental authority is defined by. Knowing the difference between authoritative vs. authoritarian parenting, as well as negligent parenting where children are overly coddled, excessively spoiled, or have little to no oversight.
- Lesson 4: Active Parenting: the importance of parents understanding that they must always be vigilant, steadfast, and, no matter what challenges they endure, must put their trust in Allah and practice perpetual gratitude. Understand that trials and tribulations are part and parcel of this world. Parents must be focused, proactive, and resourceful - shepherds tending to the flock - at all times.
