The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
"All of you are shepherds, and each one is responsible for his flock. A leader of people is a shepherd and responsible for them. A man is like a shepherd over his family, and he is responsible for his flock. A woman is like a shepherd over her husband’s house and children, and she is responsible for them. And a slave is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for it. So all of you are guardians and are responsible for your charges."(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
We are concerned Muslim Mothers, from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, united by our belief in Islam, with conviction in the Qur'an (being the last revelation from Allah to mankind revealed to his last Prophet Muhammad (saws) and the Sunnah (injunctions, laws and practical examples of the Qur'an in action) of the Prophet (saws), and the rightly guided Predecessors (the Companions of the Prophet (saws) and successive generations).
We are committed to the responsibility of our Shahadah (the testimony of a Muslim) and all that it testifies to, all that it denies and the conditions that are included within it.
We claim no affiliation with, and do not support, any sect or political ideology that deviates from the above principals - in belief or practice.
Many of us have sent our children to school and then chosen to withdraw them in order to return them to an Islamic environment. We all share a desire to provide our children with a quality education where Islam is the foundation
