Congrats to Faris Elnager on his acceptance into MIT! 
MIT is one of the most sought-after and highly selective universities in the U.S. In fact, of the 20,000 applications they receive, they only accept 7% of those students. BHA extends its heartiest congratulations to Faris and the Elnager Family. May Allah bless his journey and make it successful.
Tarbiyah Matters (Dr. Omran)
Noble Endeavor: Islamic Identity
“Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most of righteous to you.”

As Muslim parents, we always strive to raise our children to be happy, well-rounded, confident with strong character. While we employ many methods to guide our children in the right path, our main efforts should focus on building Islamic identity.
Having a strong sense of identity, a sense of who we are, our moral values and practices has an important impact on our character. These are our important conviction in establishing Islamic Identity to help our students deal with the challenges and negativities they unfortunately face in the real world.
Important practices to boost Islamic Identity:
1: Teach your children the main constants (thawabit) of Islam, pillars of Islam and Iman, love of Allah swt, love of his prophets, love of companions (sahabah), and Islamic heroes and role models.
2: Teach them that Islam is a beautiful religion that Allah swt has chosen for Muslims so that they may be purified physically, emotionally and mentally.
3: Teach them to always connect with the Holy Quran and Hadith. Make it a habit to recite and reflect on some Ayat and Ahadith.
4: Teach them who Allah loves most and who is most honorable in His eyes.
5: Explain to them what it means to be a Muslim and the beautiful quality of Muslims.
6: Demonstrate love for Islam and always practice what you preach.
7: Remember that our children may forget what we say and will always remember what they see.

May Allah swt grant us His tawfeeq to raise our children with strong Islamic identity and character. Ameen.
