    jazakAllahu khayran for your efforts.

    i am an anti-sports person so I've always had difficulty factoring in sports amongst other activities.

    Please continue the good work so long as it is within the bounds of shariaH.

    May Allah ta'ala reward you.

    Asalaamu alaikum

    Thank you for the question.

    It is an incentive for the children to go to the mosque. If you can get them in the mosque, you stand a chance at nurturing them by virtue of fixed lessons or simple interaction (showing them a good example of Islamic etiquette, morals and manners). Also, giving them something to do in a safe environment will keep them away from getting involved in bad things out there in this ever receding society.

    الحمدلله I have seen such things as table tennis and, with the older boys (12+), participation in the mosque, by way of monitored tasks/work, give them a sense of belonging and involvement therein.

    As for your points, I wish to see the same. Unfortunately there aren't many youngsters out there who would probably do something like that. Perhaps picking out the brighter ones for such an activity would be a start.

    My final point here is that we should prepare our madrasah students into our future Alim School students, who will eventually go on to become our future scholars and leaders. This is entirely possible.

    I hope I've answered your question and not merely gone off at a tangent.

    how does that help encourage one to study? just asking to understand. Please don't fly off the handle.

    personally, I think after-class reading sessions of books that stroke one's intellect or else recount the studious lives of the past masters where praises are heaped on their achievements should work better. such as this, perhaps with a mug of coffee to clear the mind.

    I am of the opinion that we need people who are socially attuned but can also turn into book-worms whenever the need arises.

    Encouragement is very important. I have had both encouraging, compassionate and caring teachers/colleagues (more senior than me who I have looked up to) in the Mosque/Madrassah institution, as well as the demeaning, jealous and 'baheel' type. Where the former will most definitely open up a person, be it student or colleague, and help them to develop into their better-self and, in the case of students, also enrich them with an attachment to the Mosque, the latter type will only discourage a person from staying on and perhaps even deplete their interest in study and Mosque.

    If children, or anyone for that matter, do not find the atmosphere and environment comfortable- they simply won;t stay on.

    JazakAllah. I like the idea about encouragement. This instils and develops a child's confidence levels and instils a love of the Masjid in their hearts.

    Motivation is the best tool to engage pupils and get results from them.

    Things that encourage 4-15 year old children (boys) to study hard and attend their classes with enthusiasm:

    -activities such as after class table tennis
    -general encouragement and kindness from teachers
    -good tarbiya at the mosque

    Some of our students may be inspired enough to go on to become our greatest future leaders. But only if they are helped and nurtured well now at the roots level- where it counts.

    Most importantly, being consistent with the above. Children love routines and consistency.

    Bump again. Sigh

    It doesnf have to be resources but it could be any ideas too.

    Some ideas from me:

    Split pupils into Sabak ability teams
    Appoint a different group motivator who encourages his team to read their Sabak.
    Team points. Award teams points if they are working well as a team and helping each other learn.
    Team points: award the team with the most points with a prize such as a bag of sweets at the end of the week.
    Plenary idea: at the end of the session, last ten minutes, ask thematic related questions to teams. Again, award team points. Thematic means related to current month e.g rabbi in noor/milaad shareef. Children love competitions e.g. Quizzes, milaad accessory making e.g buntings, flags.
    Reciting Durood shareef with children repeating at the start of every session to show the absolute importance of sending Durood upon the master peace be upon him. Moreover, recite the translation in English. Outline to children that the Prophet peace be upon him can hear us in madeenah shareef. This emphasises our sunni aqeeda also.

    These are some practices I have personally implemented in my nazira class. Any more ideas would be welcome. More idea from me to come soon in sha Allah
