Guest contributor, teenager herself, Fatima Moolla of Timeless Teenz reminds us not to dodge afternoon maktab, no matter how busy we think we are.

We’re at a crises level with so many parents thinking that they don't need to send their children for Islamic education. All these excuses: “It is time consuming; it's very stressful; my kids have extra murals and tuition as the grades get higher, and madrassa only makes the load heavier!”

The first institute of madrasa education was at the home of Hazrat Zaid bin Arkam (ra) near a hill called Safa, where our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw) was the teacher and the students were the beloved sahaba (ra). After Hijrah (migration) the madrasa of "Suffa" was established in Madina on the east side of the Masjid an-Nabawi. Hazrat Ubada bin Samit (ra) was appointed by the Prophet (saw) as a teacher. In the madrassa curriculum there were the teachings of the Qur'an, the ahadith, fara'idh, tajweed, genealogy, treatises of first aid, etc. There were also training in horse riding; the art of war; handwriting and calligraphy; athletics and martial arts. read more

The person taking a bath should first of all wash both hands upto the wrists. Then wash the private parts. The hands and private parts should be washed irrespective of whether there is any impurity on them or not. Both these have to be washed under all conditions. Thereafter, any impurity found on the rest of the body should be washed. Then make Wudu. If one is sitting on a stool or stone while bathing, then the feet should also be washed when making Wudu. But if one is sitting in a place where the water accumulates and he will have to wash the feet again after completing the Ghusl, then the entire Wudu should be made but the feet should not be washed. After performing Wudu, pour water on the head three times. Thereafter pour water over the right and left shoulders three times each in such a way that water reaches the entire body. Thereafter move from this place and go to a clean spot and wash the feet. If the feet were washed when making Wudu there will be no need to wash them again.

I served in a parachute regiment. During a nighttime exercise, I was seated next to a young officer. He was looking a bit pale, so I asked, "Scared, lieutenant?" "No," he replied. "Apprehensive." "What's the difference?" "That means I'm scared, but with a university education."
