Music Education (ReiHi-cHan): Piano or Violin? But She Loves Both.

Undeniably, music is an essential part of every child’s development. Often, a great song can light up their eyes, encourage them to move around and dance. Plus, it doesn’t end there.

However, some parents have the misconception that if they get their child music lessons, then magically they will learn how to play a musical instrument. Oh, boy!

It’s not as easy as just throwing lessons at your kids. You need to be involved, period.

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.“~ Sir Plato

The Life of Little Yunaru as Young Helper

Date: circa early 2015

Some collection of throwback pictures of 8 years old; YunaFi-cHan ^O^ These photos taken; before & after, she went as a little helper for nearby neighbourhood’s mosque.

Every 3 days in a week, the mosque community is preparing to receive a visit from various types of motivators, educators plus preachers. Dedicatedly; volunteers have organised private events; stretching from the main prayer hall to a small teahouse.

In a mini teahouse, outside the women’s prayer hall, the mosque’s main helper (Madam Siti) has arranged a plentiful banquet with generous portions, donated from community neighbours. Always keen to help a good cause, Yunaru immediately joined in to help out. Alhamdulillah 😀

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”~ Sir Aesop

“Prophet Muhammad SAW was very mindful of his relationships, especially with children.  Rather than tell children what to do, he would show them through his own actions.”


Please kindly share your tips regarding “Do’s and Don’ts of Bringing your Kids to the Mosque”, dearest wonderful mommies 🙂

We would love to hear more from you!
