Building Muslim Families
Educating Your Child in
These essays are required reading for anyone
interested in what happened to a country that once contained some of the most
brilliant minds in history and, now, cannot even produce a literate,
independently thinking individual. Who dumbed down America, and how did they
do it? John Taylor Gatto gives some insights into this coup; Hamza Yusuf
Hanson delves into the meaning of education from a holistic perspective, and
Dorothy Sayers, in very concise and at times humorous language, describes what
a real education entails. These readings are a must for anyone concerned about
protecting their children from an educational system designed to provide
anything but an education.
The dynamic relationship between John Taylor Gatto and Hamza Yusuf was extraordinary: both men share a knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject matter, and a purity of intention, which left an indelible mark on every heart in the audience. In bringing you this production, we hope to share the wisdom of a special and most empowering weekend

Muslim Teens Today's
Worry Tomorrow's HopeBy Dr. Ekram Beshir
and Mohamed Rida Beshir
From the preface: Teen years
we are told by society are the time for school dances, house parties, and road
trips, the time for underage drinking, for dating, for casinos and gambling,
the time for exploring and discovering, discovering beer, discovering drugs,
discovering the opposite sex, the time for finding yourself; teen years, we
are told, are the time of your life.
For those of you who,
by the will of Allah, wish to instill knowledge and wisdom into their
independent teens, to give their teens the Islamic cause into which they can
pour their energy and conviction, those who wish to raise teens who can raise
the Ummah, this book is for you."
