Hello my name is Taheerah. I was born and raised into the deen, however my environment coming up was heavily influenced by the outside world. Even though I believe there is no God but Allah (SWT) and Muhammad (PBUH) was his last messenger, I lack in alot of knowledge of the details of Islam. My son was born out of wedlock and now I am raising him alone. I wish to find a muslim husband to be a great husband for me and a great muslim male role model for my son. Any ideas on how to teach my son how to be a good muslim male until I find that special brother one day?

Asalaamu Alaikam,

Eman has given some really great advice, mashAllah. As for teaching your son to be a good Muslim (I wouldn't specify just being a good Muslim "male" because at his age right now, it's just important that he learn to be a good person), I would suggest that you find a masjid that has Sunday School for the kids. Get him in, and make sure he attends every week. Your son needs Islamic schooling, and to be around other Muslims.

This will also help you, since you said that you do not know a lot about Islam, either. Get involved with your local masjid, and try to find out if any of the sisters are having halaqas (circles for discussing Islamic issues, and learning about Islam). Focus on an Islamic education for both you and your son, and as Eman has said, make lots of dua (supplication) to Allah that He give you a good husband, who is firm in his knowledge of this wonderful deen of Islam.

Salam, First let me say God bless you for doing it alone, and Inshallah Allah will guide you and your son on the straight path. Now I know this is going to sound wierd, but....do you go to friday prayers or deen classes at your local mosque? Maybe by doing so you will meet some nice women who may know some eligible bachelors and so forth. I do have one friend who met her husband that way. He used to see her come in and out and he started asking questions about her. Now they are married with 2 kids! Let me know what happens! Also, when you perform your 5 prayers (and that is a must) keep asking Allah to bring you a good muslim. Allah who created the heavens and the earth can surely hear your requests. He is the only provider and we should never shy away from asking for help. If you do your part and pray then that big favor you think your asking is nothing for him!
