Stairs2Bliss 2019 - Workshop 1

Feb 16 & 17, 2019

9 am to 1 pm

Prophetic Parenting: Raising God-Conscious Children in the 21st Century

As each child grows and develops, he or she requires different strategies for development. different children need different conditions to grow. For this reason, the task of being a parent is one of life’s most trying and simultaneously rewarding experiences, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Yet each new generation of children faces a different set of challenges brought about by the progression of time, changing technology and lifestyles. Indeed, Imam Ali alayhissalam said, “Do not force your children to behave like you, for surely they have been created for a time which is different to your time.”

What are the Islamic guidelines for parenting? How can we provide the right balance of guidance, support, discipline and authority to raise God-conscious children who are spiritually grounded, independent and strong in today’s rapidly changing world? Join us for this workshop on parenting with Shaykh Hasan Ali from the UK to learn more.

This workshop seeks to equip parents (both prospective and current) with knowledge on the Islamic guidelines on parenting, specifically with respect to four main issues:

  1. Parents as a child’s first role model
    Good parenting begins with the self. A parent is often a child’s first teacher in life, especially in the formative years of development.

  2. Ta’dib & Tarbiyah: Age-specific parenting strategies
    Children have different needs and abilities at different ages. Younger children learn mostly through play and hands-on experiences, whilst older children can be encouraged to learn through self-reflection and rationalization.

  3. Islamic guidelines on discipline & affection
    How can parents strike a good balance between disciplining the children and providing affection? What are the Islamic guidelines for teaching children about consequences of their actions, and how can parents be both firm and loving towards children?

  4. Cultivating Islamic values & life skills
    How can parents cultivate beneficial habits in their children and help to identify and encourage each child’s personal strengths? What are some strategies for character-building? How does one impart values like patience and gratitude in a world where instant gratification is more often than not the modus operandi?

About the Instructor

Shaykh Hasan Ali graduated in 1997 as a scholar/Alim in Islamic education, in addition to gaining a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology at the Institute of Education (University of London) in 2006. He became the Imam of London Islamic Cultural Society (LICS) mosque on Wightman Road, North London (www.lics.info), where he founded Safar Academy, enrolling with only a handful of students. He moved on from his post of Imam and went on to work at the prestigious Yusuf Islam’s Brondesbury College for Boys as the Head of Islamic Studies and Imam. After a number of flourishing years there, he joined Ebrahim College where he taught a number of studies including usul-ul-fiqh, tafseer of the Qur\’an and A-level Philosophy of Religion.

Due to the massive growth of Safar Academy, he left the College and began to work full time to develop the Academy further and through the grace of Allah (swt), it has gone from strength to strength and expanded manifold.

Shaykh Hasan Ali is a well-known and reputable figure in North London, where he carries out a lot of voluntary work within the local community, such as local mosques and community centres, secondary schools, interfaith programmes and various community events. He has also been a pillar of support and advice to the local community, providing services and delivering jummah\’s (friday sermons) and inspirational lectures at various mosques across North London, in particular London Islamic Cultural Society (LICS), Edmonton Islamic Centre (EIC) and the Muslim Community and Education Centre (MCEC).
