Being a mother is one of the greatest blessings in a woman’s life. It is filled with gratifying and amazing moments. From the moment you become pregnant—slowly witnessing the significant changes your body goes through—to the moment your child comes out into the world and you hold him in your arms for the first time, you realize that your life will forever change. The responsibility that you bear as a mother is a huge one. Along with your husband, you will have to gently and lovingly care for, discipline, guide and educate your children until they become adults. As a mother, you have the opportunity to shape and influence your child’s identity and outlook later on in life. You are without a doubt his first and most important teacher.
But as wonderful and fun as motherhood is, it can also be challenging and confusing. This is why Muslim Mother Source (MMS) was created. It’s an attempt to help Muslim mothers, new or seasoned by providing helpful tips and sources. MMS’s aim is to put together any helpful resources and information relevant to caring for and raising happy and healthy but most importantly righteous children
As Muslims we have to live our lives in accordance to the commandments of Allah. We have to worship Allah on a daily basis. Our religion is not one that is practiced on a particular day or week or month. Our religion is part of our identity and our ways of life. In order to raise practicing and dedicated Muslim children, we have to be good Muslims ourselves first and we have to have the correct understanding of our religion. We must carefully select the right resources to teach our children when it comes to educating them and disciplining them. That means we can use anything that is helpful to us and our children as long as it doesn’t go against our religious beliefs.
