Learning About Ahadith


Ahadith (singular: hadith) are narrations of things that Prophet Muhammad said, did, or approved of, in other words, things that form  his "sunnah."  As Muslims, we first and foremost take our knowledge from the Quraan and Sunnah. So, it is important to learn about ahadith, which transmit the sunnah to us.

This post contains resources to help teach kids about ahadith.

Categories of Actions (Rulings of Fiqh)


Actions in the study of fiqh are divided into 5 categories.....


  • Waajib (obligatory)
  • Mustahabb (recommendable)
  • Mubaah (permissible)
  • Makrooh (detested)
  • Haraam (forbidden)
We have studied the categories (on the introductory level of course) in our homeschool and here are some resources that I made:

    Advice on Raising Muslim Children (from the Sunnah)


    This was posted on one of my homeschooling e-groups some years ago. It is very long but I found it extremely helpful.(sorry for the formatting, it didn't copy well) ;) Worth a read!

    Various ahadeeth on raising children - dars given by the talib ul ilm Musa Richardson.
    Musa did his research on the topic from the following sources:

    • 6 main books of ahadith, which are bukhari, muslim, tirmidhi, abu dawud, ibn majah and an nasa'ee and their explanations.
    • A'laamul hadith by Imaam Khataabee, which is the explanation of saheeh Bukhari,
    • Muf'him, which is the explanation of saheeh muslim by Imaam Qurtubee.
    • Iqmaal al mu'lim of Imaam Qadee Iyaad.
    • Ifsaah of Imaam Ibn Ubayrah.
    • Sharh of Imaam Nawawee of saheeh muslim.
    • Mishqaat al masaabeeh.
    • And other sources too.

    The Importance of Establishing Daily Routines


    Children thrive on routines. They help give them a sense of security and help them to become more self-disciplined.

    Below are a few articles that discuss the importance of routines for children and following, a few printables that I have made over the years for my kids for daily routines.
