My apologies to all readers of the blog for my absence and thus, have not updated anything here for a long time. I've recently become a mother of 2, and time is something that I'm trying to fight for :) For those who have emailed, and previously messaged, I thank you for your kind reminders and pray for your continual support.

To help this blog running and interactive, I would like to encourage readers to participate by emailing me good references, links, stories on Islamic Parenting, and I will put it up here for you to share with others who will inshaallah, benefit from it.

Email them to

May Allah help us bring up good children!
