Asalam ALikoum wa rahmatallah Inshallah this finds you all in great health and iman, I have come to seek some opinions on what I should do for my 6 year old who attends public school and thier party tommorow. I feel like we have been having celebrations at school since October for Halloween, I took him out of school. However for Christmas the party was presented as a book exchange, well we received a christmas sticker book. I want to know how shoudl I react to these situations? Should I: A) take my son out of school on just hte days of the party? The problem with this option is that it is not only the day of the party for a week there is the "preperation" for the party, the talk of the party B) let him go to school but not let him participate? C) Let him participate ? I really am tired of this and jus wish I could get him into Islamic Schooling, which is soooooooooooooooooooooo expensive for our income not to mention 30 miles away. We agreed to put him in a publlic school so as not to shelter him and felt it would help him become strong in Another thing I worry about just taking him out of school for those days and not letting him see what happens is he will revolt when he gets older because he feels like he "missed out on something" We are tied to the masjid allhamdullilah, he is there at least 3 times a week and we make Eids special and ramadan we are there for taraweh prayers and there for laylt al qadr, he already says he wants to fast 1/2 days this next ramadan inshallah, how do I establish his muslim identity without sheltering him where he revolts but still keeping islamic pronciples?
