My husband and I have over 8 years of experience working with Muslim youth of all ages. We have taught in Islamic schools as well as weekend schools and have participated in various after school programs. Overall we have a comprehensive understanding of the different types of educations our Muslim communities offer across the globe.
After a few years, we soon realized that our Muslim children are in need of newer and more creative ways to boost their learning and preserve their Islamic education. Islamic education is considered boring to many adults to begin with, so imagine trying to teach our children with the same methodologies. Habib, my husband and I then looked into volunteering our time in developing fun and unique learning strategies using activities that children will enjoy. Over the past few years, we have seen real transformations in both children and even a few adults in their way of understanding and practicing the religion of Islam.
After a few more months of research, we found that magazines are a good approach to educate, entertain and ignite imaginations in our Muslim youths. Since we have been very successful in our own community of London, Ontario – by the help of Allah (swt) first – we felt the need to extend this fun and engaging educational style to as many children as possible. As of Dec 1st, 2015, myDeen was established.
We are thankful to Allah (swt) for giving us the time and ability to compile these magazines. We ask Him to accept our efforts as well as yours and to make us successful in enriching our children’s Islamic education in a fun and creative way. Any good that comes from myDeen is ultimately from Him (swt).
