Educating Your Child in Modern Times
Educating Your Child in Modern Times : Raising an Intelligent, Sovereign, & Ethical Human Being 
(John Taylor Gatto, Hamza Yusuf Hanson)
Paperback 82 Pages
By  John Taylor Gatto, Hamza Yusuf Hanson, Dorothy Sayers
Publisher: Alhambra Productions (2003)
Pages: 82 Binding: Paperback

Based on a conference held May 10 and 11, 2003, in Berkeley, California.

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




Meeting the challenges of parenting in the west
By Dr. Ekram Beshir and Mohamed Rida Beshir
Amana Publications USA
SC 240  pages (6" x 9")

An excellent guidebook and manual helping parents raise their children, offering sound Islamic principles coupled with child psychology. This refreshing and positive book offers parents practical advice about the upbringing of young children. Included are case studies and, what sets this book apart from others, the testimonials of the authors' children. The authors relate how the first wave of Muslim immigrants struggled to build Masjids and centers for their communities to establish a Muslim presence in North America. Now, however a much more complicated effort is required for parents to concentrate on the developing the Muslim personality in their children to assure the continuation of the practice of Islam. An easy and hands-on guidebook. Very uplifting and positive

This book covers most of the social issues related to parents, husbands, wives, and children. It is beneficial for all members of the family, those starting out on family life and those families which have already developed as a basic unity of society."



Muslim Teens Today's Worry Tomorrow's HopeBy Dr. Ekram Beshir and Mohamed Rida Beshir
Amana Publications USA

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.

Teen years are the paradoxical highlight of life in the western world. They are the time in which one is bombarded with knowledge and freed from responsibility. Teens have the privileges of an adult and the responsibilities of a child; teens rebel by conforming; the stand out by melting into their group of friends. Being a teen means wanting independence but not having the wisdom it requires; it means having energy and conviction and needing a cause to which to devote them.

 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."
