Assalamu’alaikum dear parents,

A healthy family raises a happy, healthy child. Therefore, it is utmost important especially during Ramadhan to take care of our health and watch what we consume. Doctor Adeeb Rizvi Head of “S.I.U.T” Civil Hospital Karachi, who is a leading kidney specialist has appealed to everyone not to drink cold drinks such as Pepsi, Coca Cola, 7UP, Dew etc at Iftar (fast-breaking) time.

A long day of fasting causes dehydration of the kidneys. Having cold & fizzy drinks suddenly causes the kidneys to fail. So don’t drink any cold drinks specially at Iftar. Use fresh water and fresh juices instead. Children consume what is easily available and given to them so be good examples in making better choices during our daily meals. Insyallah instilling this healthy habit from young helps them to be healthy adults in the future.

I hope you and your family will benefit from this. Please enlighten your other family members, friends and loved ones as Sadqa-e-Jariya (charity with continuous reward).

Jazakumullah khair, wassalam.

As a mother of five children, I am very passionate about Islamic early child care and education. Alhamdulillah. Besides being a Founder and Executive Director of Integrated Islamic School Shah Alam (IISSA), my path has also taken me into being the trainer, consultant and academic author of The Little Caliphs Program, an Islamic-English-Creative preschool program which I run alongside my husband Haji Roslan bin Nordin.

This creative pre-school curriculum integrates the basic teaching of Islam with other basic knowledge and skills such as reading, writing, drawing, Math, and English. One of my visions among many is to cultivate the ability to read in all young children around the world at the tender age of 4. Furthermore, I would love for this program to be adopted by kindergartens all over the world so that children will have the correct understanding and positive attitude towards Islam, Insya Allah.
