Basic Islamic Q&A You should teach to your child

Soalan-soalan simple dan jawapan yang boleh diajar kepada anak-anak dari kecil. Walaupun simple tapi ianya dapat menanamkan teras Tauhid dan akidah yang kuat dalam diri anak-anak. Mungkin mereka akan hanya menghafal pada mulanya, tapi lama-kelamaan bila mereka telah bersedia untuk memahami, ibubapa perlu menerangkan dan memberikan pemahaman yang betul. Tapi untuk memberikan penerangan yang betul, ibu bapa perlu memastikan bahawa mereka juga benar-benar faham dan mempunyai ilmu!!.. Jadi ayuh ibubapa sekalian, persiapkanlah dirimu dengan ilmu….

Haris and Islamic Education

Jika untuk English Education saya memilih pakej “Learn English With Noddy”, untuk pelajarn Islami, saya suka mengikut tips-tips yang diberi oleh Islamic Parenting Network. Pendidikan awal Al-Quran seawal usia 4 bulan amat menakjubkan. Teknik pertama yang saya gunakan kepada Haris adalah teknik flash card jawi yang sekarang banyak yang dah koyak rabak. I started showing him the flash card since he was 6 months old.  By 8 months old, i play the Arabic cartoon and huruf hijaiya song repeatedly. Since he was 9 months old, i start to bring him to mosque.

Haris mula mengikut gerak geri solat pada usia 11 bulan bila dia mula berjalan. Kami bawa haris ke masjid setiap kali solat maghrib dan mendengar kuliah just to make him love and familiar dengan suasana masjid. Alhamdulillah, kariah masjid di sini amat mesra dengan budak dan bayi. Jadi saya boleh bersembahyang jemaah sambil mendokong Haris tanpa pandangan pelik dari jemaah lain.

Alhamdulillah, sesuatu yang menarik dapat di lihat dari amalan membawa Haris ke masjid. Setiap kali mendengar azan, Haris akan turut sama azan mengikut alunan muazzin dan akan khusyuk mendengar sehingga habis. Dan setiap kali mendengar Takbir, Haris akan samada Qiam atau sujud. But in his own funny style ler..

Kami juga sering menerapkan A is for Allah… dan sekarang jika ditanya kepada beliau ” Haris.. A for?.. ALLAHHH!’ haris akan jawab.  Setiap kali dia terjatuh atau barang terjatuh, perkataan yang akan keluar dari mulut kecil comelnya adalah Allah!…Kami tahu haris tak faham pon apa yang diucapkannya. Tapi sekurang-kurang menyebut nama Allah dapat mencerahkan hati. Sekurang-kurangnya, ada juga usaha ku untuk memahat nama-nama Allah di lidah dan akal Haris yang menjadi.

Pada masa kini kesedaran untuk memupuk ajaran Islam dalam diri kanak-kanak semakin mendapat perhatian ibu-ibu moden termasuklah saya. Banyak juga organisasi samada NGO atau kerajaan yang menawarkan pelbagai program untuk melahirkan anak-anak celik agama. Montesori Islami seperti Genius Aulad, Little Caliph juga semakin mendapat perhatian. Ibu moden sangat beruntung kerana terdapat banyak cara untuk mendapatkan panduan mendidik anak. Internet, the 8th wonder of the world, perlu dimanfaatkan dengan sebaik mungkin dalam mengutip ilmu-ilmu yang berguna untuk mendidik anak. Kitab-kitab mendidik anak secara islam juga kini boleh didapati dengan mudah dalam bentuk terjemahan Bahasa Melayu.

Kitab/Buku yang boleh menjadi panduan:

1. Pendidikan anak-anak dalam Islam oleh: Dr Abdullah Nasih Ulwan

2.  Children Islamic Education :Mufti Jalal-Ud-Din Ahmad Amjadi

My goal is to make sure Haris punya tahap penguasaan Bahasa Arab is as good as his English. Insya Allah, he can at least read and memorize Juz Amma before dia masuk tadika.  That is my KPI for this 4 years.

Ya Allah, bantulah aku untuk melahirkan Ideal Syabab yang akan membantu mendaulatkan dan membela agama-Mu..Bantulah aku Ya Allah. Berilah aku pedoman untuk merealisasikan impian ku. Namun jika Engkau mempunyai perancangan lain untuk anakku, aku redha kerana aku yakin Engkau adalah sebaik-baik perancang..

Haris’s English Journey : Week 1

Since beli pakej English Noddy di pesta buku kelmarin, kami terus memulakan  pengadaptasikan English environment kepada Haris. It’s only the day 2, but we can see the progress. We played the first CD repeatedly and he can now speak and sing along the song. How amazing the baby’s brain is. They are an amazing learner. The repetitive technique is truly works!

As for today, he can imitate few steps in the video and blurt out the word “car..car..car”. At first, when he saw the spotty dance the act of car, he didn’t respond. However, after I acted exactly like the character, he started to stand and imitate me. It’s really fun. I knew then, the parent must get involve to make this program work. No points putting your child in front of the TV but you are not there to guide him.

Last week, I taught him the word shoe by showing him his shoes. He seems to ignore me and I’m quite disappointed at that time. But, I continue to tell him the word every time I put it on him. Then, last Sunday, when we were about to go out, I said to him, ” Haris, where is your shoe?” without expecting any reaction from him. But to my surprise, he walked to his shoe, picked it up and gave it to me!!!.. I and my husband were hesitating as we can’t believe he can actually understand! What a wonderful moment…Since then, I knew that there’s a lot of potential in him that we can dig out and we just need to help him.

He understands few words such as ball, drink, eat, lion, car, kiss, hug, sit, up and maybe pray. Quite a lot for 1 year old baby. The best part is when we said “Lion”, he’ll immediately “Roars”…hahaha. My method is simple, I use a lot of expressions when talking and playing with him. Since his first toy is book, I can see that he’s always attracted to book and always ask me to read to him. That’s why I always bought new book for him as I’m happy to see his enthusiasm when he has new book.

I love to spent time with him and help him become smarter each day. I can proudly say that quitting my job is the best decision I’ve ever made!
