    If you make intense supplication and the timing of the answer is delayed, do not despair of it. His reply to you is gauranteed; but in the way He chooses, not the way you choose, and at the moment He desires, not the moment you desire.

    About the topic of lots of Muslims studying education - that is true but a school just can't have so many young teachers. They NEED teachers with many years of experience, especially for years 10-12.
    "Have they not travelled in the land so that they should have hearts with which to understand, or ears with which to hear? For surely it is not the eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts."

    I think it's funny how this is a thread about education and auto-correct seems to have run amok.

    There's a few non-muslim teachers at Al-Siraat, but the kids wouldn't know the difference. All female staff wear a headscarf so the kids just think it's normal, they probably assume they're all Muslim but those teachers don't teach Islamic studies.
    My son's teacher is muslim but the other Prep class had a non-muslim teacher. She always wore long skirts and a headscarf and was given instructions for the morning dua, dua for study dua for eating etc and I saw her encouraging the children and reminding them to say their dua. may Allah guide her.



    The way I look at things: Al Siraat teaches my son how to read Quran and they're doing a good job at it so far, Alhumdulillah. All my son's friends are Muslim. There's proper islamic uniform at the school. Academically they're teaching him well so far Alhumdulillah he's chugging along just fine. It's also a bonus that all the parents are Muslim.
    So I can't really ask for much more out of a school.

    Things like excursions, schoolground, stuff like that is important but not as important as the education.

    Even though i trust the school I still enrolled my kids in Kumon. Just in case.

    lol Sarah you're funny, but I agree with you and cheesegirl. More than anything we need quality teachers who are able to deliver the material effectively, and the higher level you are the more important it is, then you can save money on tuition fees when they're older.

    How horrible about the teacher being told off for telling students to not wear short skirts. I attended a non-Muslim school and our year 11 co-ordinator would often tell students to avoid wearing skirts that were too short and tops that show midriffs to school. And this Muslim principal has a problem with a teacher doing the same in an Islamic setting??!! SubhanaíAllah!

    Najah: I think sis marhaba may have said what she did due to the fact that NONE of the Islamic schools that are available have raising our children Islamically as a top priority. In fact, for most of them the Islamic upbringing of our children does not even feature on their lists of priorities full stop.
    It is sad, but this is the reality. Most of the Islamic schools are just great businesses for someone really. Take for example the fact that one of the Islamic colleges plans to teach its VCE students a text that explores sexuality as a main theme in 2013. I got this bit of info from a post in the sisterís section- I think the brothers need to hear about the dangers present in our Islamic schools too.

    The text is littered with sex scenes, many of which are very explicit; and our dear Muslim children, at the most impressionable time in their growing up are going to sit together (in a mixed setting) reading, discussing and then possibly writing essays about some characters sexual encounters. And all of this will be done with the assistance of an adult teacher role model, who in selecting this text, is clearly giving these students the impression that there is nothing wrong with reading texts that contain sexual content, that there is nothing wrong with girls and boys sitting together and reading through such content - that in fact, modesty mustnít play any role in our deen whatsoever! I do hope they donít have to memorise some of these explicit descriptions to serve as quotes to support their analysis during exams as we did in year 12- what a catastrophe if our children are made to memorise selections of perverted texts! How will we answer to Allah for that? So much for protecting our youthsí modesty and haya...

    A sister did take the issue up with Admin and they have simply disregarded her concerns and will go ahead with teaching the text anyway. And for those who are thinking such texts canít be avoided when living in the west, let me tell you that every school selects from a range provided on a list, and I have checked and there are clean texts on that list! Let me add that this school is one that tends to be praised by some members on here.

    Warning: what I am about to say next is a bit controversial and is not for the faint hearted, but my conscience tells me it must be said nonetheless...

    Unless the parents genuinely canít afford to (meaning that after theyíve cut out holidays, and other luxury items from their lifestyles), I donít see anything preventing them from protecting their children from all the fitnah that is out there in schools- Islamic or otherwise, by bringing tutors into the home to educate their children. This is fard upon us. Remember we will be held accountable for everything before Allah and that day is not too far away. Our children should be our number one investment for the akhira.

    Oh, and for anyone wanting to play the ďimportance of socialisationĒ card, pls have mercy on me and save me the trouble of having to post anymore on the topic by reading through my previous posts. My arguments donít seem to change much.

    Just a quick update on the issue. It seems that through Allah's assistance and the strength He (Subhanahu wa Ta'Alaa) gave us to continue the fight the school has decided to change the text to the one that I chose for my daughter to study Alhamdulilah. Although I am not the school's favourite parent at the moment with teachers screaming at my daughter's friends to find out who I am but insha'Allah Allah is pleased with our actions.

    This entire episode has been followed by one unislamic and unprofessional act after another. Throughout I have tried to stick to a professional grievance procedure allowing each individual, at every tier of the organisation, involved in the the matter to resolve this amicably and save face before escalating it to the next level.Their issue is the student and parent petitions that my daughter and I worked on. So the issue seems to be that we made this issue known within the school community. Khair insha'Allah. Yes sister, screaming comments like "tell us who the woman in the niqab is" is definitely verging on the weird side.

    I think this event may be from Allah's infinite wisdom for my daughter to grow up understanding the realities of life and people, and Allah Knows Best. Throughout this issue she has shown such strength and conviction about her beliefs masha'Allah. May Allah protect her and all of our children and Guide them upon His Straight Path. Ameen.

    I disagree. you don't need senior teachers to teach VCE level subjects. Yea they know the ropes because they have been at it for a while. But teachers who switched careers into teaching are far better knowledgeable and better equipped to teach such subjects then those who went to school to uni back to school to regurgitate what they studied in books only. A person who has been in business industry for a decade will make a far better teacher at any level than some teacher stuck in a rut teaching same thing for many many years.

    I think it's not only fair but right to point them out. I haven't come across one islamic school that i would say is "islamic" and worthy of praise. half the teachers hired are kuffar who wear unsialmic clothing, who bring their ideas and kuffar lifestyle thinking into the classroom. The admin promotes "isalmic" school while they hire kuffar over Muslim teachers. These "isalmic" school students are hanging together on the side of the building after school, mixed and socializing. If the students pretend to be all islamic at school but soon as they are out, all the tight clothes shows, and mixed hanging out and other stuff i see them do on eid days then clearly the "islamic" school failed into instill the values in them they were suppose to.

    And that is the sad reality. islamic schools like rest of the education system is nothing more than a business. A good money making scheme. And what's worst is they sell it with a "islamic" stamp on it. There is a large growing trend in the US for conservative christians to home school their kids. It's very easy and better and the kids are 2-3 grades ahead of the school kids. There are so many resources available online for homeschool and it's a no brainier these days either. Even if you are busy working 24/7 and your wife is an illiterate blondy, it still can be done. Maybe Muslims need to stop living in false illusion thinking they are giving their kids "islamic" education by putting them in these so called Islamic schools and thinking their job is done.

    I can't believe my eyes.
    Well, the school my son attends has majority Muslim staff.
    If there aren't enough qualified Muslim teachers that's the community's problem not the school's. maybe people should start pushing their daughters and sons into fields that the community needs.

    A school IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for what kids do outside of school.
    If a parent allows a teenage girl to wear tight clothes that's their decision.

    My son sees an Islamic environment at school I could not care less what the kids do out of school that's between them and allah i'm not going to judge them and BTW there are SOOOOOO many more important things than correct clothing.

    A school could preach whatever they liked if kids go home and see the opposite they probably won't stick to it.

    And when there is a qualified teacher, the school skips over them for more experienced kuffar teachers.

    A school IS RESPONSIBLE for what happens on their property and if they are unaware of what is going on around the corner, well then what more can you say. And you are paying high $$$ for private islamic education, if the schools fail to instill the islamic morals and values in the kids then they have failed. the not so religious parents can't be blamed for everything. I know of quite a few students who have had their parents quit smoking, come to the masjid more often, etc.

    your son must be in primary, come back after a few years and let us know if you feel the same way. better yet try taking active role in his school and see how well you fare. I've been involved enough to know what they sell and what they do.

    please don't pull out the "allah is the judge" card, hearing that from today's Muslims is getting old also.

    Talib4life. You won't have a perfect Islamic school, especially not in this country. If you are unhappy with something, take it up with the school and do something about it.

    Every Islamic shcool I know would do anything to hire an educated, qualified muslim teacher over non-muslim, I don't know where your getting your info from!Tthey hire non-muslims because they NEED to! I've had a school already offer me a job and I have not even finished studying. People are NEVER happy, be grateful we even have Islamic schools here in Australia. I agree they are not perfect, but who/what is? I understand some stuff will annoy you but that is YOUR responsibility to contact the school and make a change for the better.

    Your post was a disgrace, what does the school have to do with the way kids act outside of school hours or how they dress? that is where parenting comes in! I know many muslims who were sent to non-muslim schools and got scores in their 90s and have never had girlfriends even though they were exposed to rubbish. why? because their parents taught them morals and values and most importantly what was halal and haram.

    Sorry sis UmmRachid for my comment. I did say though that "for most of them the Islamic upbringing of our children does not even feature on their lists of priorities." I think that where providing an Islamic environment is concerned, Darul Uloom does a good job.

    Travelling Muslimah, Insha'Allah you find your reward for battling through with this issue heavy in your scales on the day of judgement. Tabraka'Allah on your daughter- she has a great example in you.

    Talib4life, I agree with most of what you said though I don't think it's such a good idea for an illiterate person to try and educate their child themselves... I agree that anyone can do it though even if they haven't had any tertiary education in teaching themselves. There are teacherís manuals, videos, softwares and a whole lot of other resources at the parent's disposal these days to give them step by step instructions. And if they get stuck with a particular subject they can always get a tutor for that.

    I know a sister who has always struggled financially and she has schooled her sons using only the free resources available online and her boys are leaps and bounds ahead of children their age. But she is very dedicated and hard working. Being poor and always in debt means they never had all the fancy gadgets and technologies that often sidetrack children from reading and studying these days too. So I guess it worked to her advantage as her boys love reading and spend all their time with books. Allah places brakah in the time/lives of whom He wills based on their intentions.

    The reason that the Christian community do it so well is due to the fact that often times both parents are active in their childís education. So the father is just as involved and may take on a few subjects (e.g. math and science) when he gets home from work, while the mother tackles the rest. And what a powerful message must be communicated to the child about the importance of education and learning when both parents take an active role in it.

    Sarah - I'm calling it as i see it. You may have had some good experience but that does not mean it's the majority. No school is perfect nor ever will be. But at the same time you cannot ignore what goes on nor pretend to be dumb and blind to it. You be happy with your islamic school but if im dishing that much cash out then i wouldn't be satisfied with the return i'm getting. How many hours a day does a child spend at school vs at home? we say this and that about kuffar schools saying most of what they learn is from school and friends there, you have to work twice as hard at home to keep them straight. And now we are talking about islamic schools and it's suddenly the opposite? now it's the home environment that is stronger than the school? what hypocrisy is this? Every islamic school you "know" huh, well every islamic school I applied to didn't hire. Not even the one i did 40hrs of observation and CRT at nor the one whose board members were all cozy and friendly, esp. during ramadan when it came for those donations. you have your experience and i have mine, so get off your high horse and stop calling others arrogant for seeing the side you haven't yet and pointing it out to others.Your reply was a disgrace.

    The principal was extremely non-committal, amongst other things. I was about to escalate it to the board as a Sheikh was going to approach them on my behalf. It seems that the turnaround occurred after they became aware of the Student and Parent Petitions. But, Allah Knows Best why they had a sudden change of heart and He Subhanahu wa Ta'Alaa is the Turner of Hearts Alhamdulilah.

    The reason that the Christian community do it so well is due to the fact that often times both parents are active in their childís education. So the father is just as involved and may take on a few subjects (e.g. math and science) when he gets home from work, while the mother tackles the rest. And what a powerful message must be communicated to the child about the importance of education and learning when both parents take an active role in it.
    Ameen. May Allah make me half of what you think I am insha'Allah. Although my background is not Muslim, we were brought up to stand up for what we believe in and I hope to instill this even more in my children as Muslims insha'Allah. Whenever my Mum gets upset about the conversion issue I always say that "I am a product of your upbringing as you raised me to question, not blindly follow, and to stand up for my beliefs". She doesn't like this very much.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly about both parents being actively involved in their children's education. Coming from Jewish parentage this is something that still saddens me about the Muslim community. There is a lack of emphasis on education, both secular and most importantly, Islamic. This is why I raised this issue in the Sisters Section, to highlight the fact that these schools are not doing the right thing by our children and for us, as parents, to be more actively involved. When it comes to schools we have limited, to no, acceptable options. Then there is the University issue, but that is a whole new thread.
