Please do not think this is simply a book on how to be a more effective parent. This book is the first step on the way to a future much better than the world of today. In today’s world we have war, murder, rape, illegal drug sale and use, robbery, violence of all kinds, exploitation, pollution, corruption, starvation, illiteracy, sexual immorality, addictions to various harmful substances, and many other social problems. Not only do these wrongs exist in our world, but these combined wrongs occur billions and billions of times every day. This is not the world Allah meant for us to have, and we have no intention of allowing these horrors, both great and small, to continue ruining the lives of our children.
The knowledge and techniques presented in this small booklet are very powerful; and, if correctly and consistently used, truly can aid parents in raising their children to become good and true Muslims who can succeed academically and professionally in the modern world without losing their belief in or their practice of traditional Islam. This is the first offering of the Khalifah Project, under the auspices of the Ministry of Women and Family Affairs.
The goal of the Khalifah Project is to offer the people of Malaysia viable means to improve the character of the nation’s youth so significantly that Malaysia will come to be known as such an excellent example of what a good and right society should be that we will serve as a model of social development for all the world’s nations. To achieve the fullness of its potential success this project must come to belong to all the people of Malaysia, regardless of race or religion.
(Note: Although this booklet has an Islamic orientation we think this information would be equally useful to parents of all religions. Future works of the Khalifah Project will be produced recognizing the diverse religious and cultural heritage which makes Malaysia unique.)

NOTE: You will see that we allow anyone who would like to re-publish this parenting manual to do so without cost if it is done non-commercially (meaning profits are used for the betterment of society), or to contact us at Islamic-World.net if anyone would like to publish commercially (we would then ask some small donation to assist with the running costs of our website). We have provided a selection of book covers to choose from for re-publishing, or you are free to design your own cover. Also you are free to add your organization’s name and/or logo to the cover. We have not included our back cover text as we feel it would be most appropriate for anyone re-publishing this parenting manual to use that space to say something unique to their individual or organizational needs. (If there is any difficulty with the .doc format in which the parenting manual offered, please contact us to receive a copy in any format you need for publication.)
