One of the most critical skills to learn in life is the ability to learn from life. There are numerous types of activities which learners can conduct to reach their learning objectives -- arguably the best activity is life itself. And one powerful and highly accessible method to do so is ongoing journaling.
Journaling pages offer your child/student a consistent input to work weekly on reflecting on their journey of learning Allah’s Names, attributes and how this translates to their daily life. A journaling page will help your child/student to write and reflect upon how the virtue and character strength is implemented and how to act upon the name of Allah. They will grasp that developing good character requires that you learn and work on good manners every day and that Allah’s Divine Names are guiding us to become strong Muslims.

Character Builders is a highly recommended course for all parents and Muslim educators. The course focuses on the central aspect of our personality- our Character! At a time, when we find prominent industrialists, entrepreneurs, business tycoons, failing to hold the moral and ethical values in their dealings, this course serves as a reminder to instil ethical and moral values in our children, the ethical leaders of tomorrow. The best part about this course are the several examples given from the Qur'aan and the Sunnah, which should further strengthen the bond of love between us and our Creator. The instructor, Aisha Vicky Koolen, makes a superb presentation and I strongly recommend each one of you to sign up for this important course.Read Less
