North East Islamic Community Center of New York organized a Family Seminar

Mr. Mehmet Ali Sengul is one of the well known preacher in Turkey. He quoted a verse from holly Quran in North East Islamic Community Center


” And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.”


“And Allah has made for you from yourselves mates and has made for you from your mates sons and grandchildren and has provided for you from the good things. Then in falsehood do they believe and in the favor of Allah they disbelieve?”


He is saying this verse is emphasizing the importance of the family. Also the family has been assigned an important place because Islam is the religion fulfills the nature of humans (the natural religion). Human nature is created in such a manner that it finds no peace, stability or relaxation except within the family environment.


Another reason why the family is highly essential in Islam is that it is the natural place where a child can be raised.  In our days the family is know as where a productive generation child can grow between two loving parents and from this ambiance speed up a nature of kindness and compassion.


In order for a child to choose the right path the child must be guided and educated from youth to the adulthood. Kindness is part of human nature together with other potential tendencies of hatred and hostility. Kindness can be made to dominate over other natural feelings if it is developed by family education and well-prepared environment.
