Why Muslims Are Loosing It.. in Blog archive Posted February 11, 2006 :D Yes this is true and i thought about it too but you know just to say something in their defense.. a lot of our users are not seriously looking for gaining knowledge.. maybe just a place to hangout with other fellow muslims??!! That excuse did occur to me and it makes the issue even worse. I can understand if someone says they come on here to interact with other Muslim people because they donâ€™t have contacts with Muslims in reality. However, that does not excuse anyone. It is easier to get involved in idle chit chat and donâ€™t I know it but even a child at 3 realises not to touch the boiling kettle. Iâ€™m not trying to come down hard, there are young members on this board but ilm is not restricted to age. Hmm.. would you then consider putting your future children :D in an Islamic school or regular school or catholic school?? Personally I would prefer an Islamic school but that may not change anything. I know sisters and brothers who have spent all their lives in Islamic schools yet they lack adab and the way they act is best left unsaid. So if you compared me (who went to a catholic primary school) to someone who spent all their lives in Islamic school the result is contradictory to what anyone would presume......hmm, i'll stick to the save ticket, Islamic school inshallah. I've made up my mind. For me it will be Islamic school till grade 8 then public school why because by gr8, the values are morals are firmly in place within the child and seconly here in north america i dont know of any Islamic school that goes all the way to gr12! I donâ€™t know the equivalent to grade 8 here in UK but Iâ€™m guessing theyâ€™ll be 12/13ish? I think at that age it is dangerous to place them in unfamiliar and corrupted environment. Ultimately parents can only do so much, Allah (swt) guides whom he pleases but if you let a 13 year old boy/girl go into a mixed school when before they have been used to being either with bro/sis only. Lets just say curiosity will kill the cat 9 times and leave it in a bad state. Lakin Allahuâ€™allim. Sister CE, I just want to add.. what do you think about a place having an influence on young/weak minds?? Like i'm saying a muslim child growing up in California (nice place but not very Islamic) and a kid growing up in Jeddah, KSA. What are your thoughts.. I know some people who live next to masjid-ul-haram yet have never prayed in there. Women are not allowed to drive yet it is permissible for a non-mahram to wheel her around O_o. It is easier to become a munafiq in an environment such as Jeddah than it is to become a munafiq in a place like California. Yes environment does bare some weight in how children turn out to be but I wouldnâ€™t say alone environment can direct a child to losing their grip on their faith.
