WLSIS Annual Conference | Raising a Muslim Child
Saturday 9th April 2011
Hounslow Jamia Masjid
We live in an age and a world that is radically different from that
which preceding generations experienced. Many new issues and challenges
face us as a community, not least of which concern the upbringing of our
children in a way that nurtures their spiritual faculties, maximises their
educational achievements, makes them into wholesome human beings, and
gives them the best start in life.
