How to inspire kids to love our Holy Prophet (S) with Shaykh Abdullah Anik Misra
The life of the Prophet (S), in his Seerah, or life story and Hadith, or teachings, is the second source after the Holy Qur’an from which we derive our understanding of Allah’s message. However, teaching our children to follow the footsteps of the Prophet (S) isn’t easy if they don’t fully understand who he is and love him truly. So, how can we teach our children to deeply love Rasulullah, the Prophet Muhammad (S), and what is the reality of our relationship with him in the past, present, and future?
In this episode of the Muslim Superdad & Wondermom podcast, we discuss fostering appreciation for the Prophet Muhammad (S) through learning about his life. We spoke with Shaykh Abdullah Anik Misra, a scholar popularly known for writing the “Seerah Song”. He shared the secrets to nurturing a deep love for the Prophet (S), which was the goal of his “Seerah Song”. Shaykh Abdullah also explained how the Prophet (S) himself contextualized and modeled his teachings in his day to day life.
How to become the best version of ourselves
Teach kids about prison (seriously)
The beauty of Islam and the guidance of Allah (SWT) are capable of illuminating even the darkest places of our society, the prison system. And subhanAllah, there are many people who become Muslim in prisons around the country. Unfortunately, they are often overlooked by their local Muslim communities, who fail to give them the support they need.
What can we do for Muslims in prisons, and why does it matter that we support them? Joining us in conversation in the latest episode of the Muslim Superdad & Wondermom podcast is Br. Hakim Booker, a civil engineer who launched the Prison Quran Project. His passion lies in serving the underserved in our communities, particularly newly converted Muslims in prisons. He shares how he discovered the need for this cause, how he now serves Muslims in prisons around the country, and what we can do to get involved.
Does it matter if my kids only speak English?
A matter of concern for many first and second generation immigrants is that of language. While we can easily and fluently speak English, we often let our mother tongues slide not just as an effort to fit in, but because its just easier. Does it matter if my kids only speak English, or is there value in preserving the languages of our parents and grandparents?
In this episode of the Muslim Superdad & Wondermom podcast, Dr. Aria Razfar, a professor of education at the University of Illinois, explores the deep role that language plays in our lives, the benefits of being fluent in more than one language, and the dangers of losing your mother tongue. He draws upon his research into the sociocultural dimensions of language in the interview.
How can forgiveness save a marriage? (+ lessons from positive psychology)
What is positive psychology, and what does the study of positive psychology tell us about how we should live our lives? The study of positive psychology concerns both the psychology of happiness and subjective well-being, and the psychology of virtue or character strength. With the study of positive psychology comes the importance of forgiveness, optimism, and hope.
In this episode of the Muslim Superdad & Wondermom podcast, we are joined by Dr. Everett Worthington, a pioneer in the field of positive psychology and the author of numerous books on humility, forgiveness, and child-rearing. Dr. Worthington talks about his lifelong study of positive psychology and discusses the benefits of being optimistic, the power of hope, and the value of learning to forgive.
