Muslim parenting today can be lonely and overwhelming...

…something that fills you with worry and fear


Allah ﷻ Himself acknowledges how hard it can be in the Qur’an (8:28):

وَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّمَآ أَمْوَٰلُكُمْ وَأَوْلَـٰدُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ

“And know that your possessions and your children are a test…”

  • There’s so much to sort out - work, bills and the daily struggles of life, so you worry that you haven't instilled the important Islamic habits that your child needs.
  • Your own childhood, those perfect Instagram mums and scary stories about youth leaving Islam make you feel inadequate and ill-equipped as a parent.
  • You feel lost and confused about how exactly to raise confident, resilient Muslim children with all the conflicting advice and gaps in your own Islamic knowledge.
  • You lack clarity on what you want your family to be like in the future and fear either spoiling your kids or being unduly harsh.
  • You are anxious and unsure about how to prevent your child from falling into the abyss of a life of materialism, immorality and sin, which is all too easy in our society.
  • Or maybe, your kids are young adults and you feel guilty about neglecting their tarbiyah, knowing that it will come to haunt you sooner or later.

Does any of this sound familiar?

But here’s why that’s not your fault.

We live in a time when…

  • Pornographic imagery and warped ideologies bombard kids every day.
  • God and religion are abandoned and degeneracy has filled the void.
  • Consumerism, hedonism and instant gratification are encouraged.
  • Girls are sexualised and gender ideology is taught at school.
  • Motherhood and fatherhood are devalued and family breakdown is the norm.
  • We bear the burden alone, without extended family setups sharing the responsibility for raising children.

No wonder statistics show that one in four children have self-harmed, suicide rates for 15-19 year-olds are the highest they’ve been in 30 years, and one in four 14-year-old girls is depressed.


Don't despair. I know how you feel.

Sadly, far too many Muslim parents simply don’t feel confident and passionate about raising believers because they’ve never really been taught how.

Instead of parenting being an enriching and fulfilling experience where you truly feel you are building a legacy, it ends up filling you with anxiety.

But raising the next generation of believers shouldn’t be so hard!

What you need is a powerful, practical and proven process to empower you to raise believers and support you on your path.

I know that you dream of raising a family of believers who:

Love Allah ﷻ, are devoted to Islam and are followers of the Prophet’s ﷺ sunnah.

Are attached to the Qur’an, pray their prayers willingly and maintain a deep connection with Allah ﷻ.

Respect their elders, honour their guests and are cultured with fine manners.

Are proactive members of society, serving the ummah and the world.

Embrace the hijab, are modest but confident and proud of their Muslim identity.

Are the coolness of your eyes in this life and the next.

How do I know this? Because I have walked in your shoes.

Allow me to introduce myself…

I’m Sheikha Fatima Barkatulla.

An Islamic scholar, author and broadcaster based in a leafy area of London in the United Kingdom.

I’m a mother of four: an adult and two teenage sons - two of whom have memorised the entire Qur’an - and a school-aged daughter. I empower parents with practical advice and transformational insights from the Qur’an, Sunnah and teachings of our scholars to help them confidently raise God-centred families so that they can fulfil their duty as caretakers and shepherds of the next generation of Believers.


In 2017 I began developing this course, Raising Believers, to help people achieve more confidence and gain the tools and practical Islamic guidance regarding raising Muslim children properly.

I’ve authored two ground-breaking children’s books: Khadijah: First Lady of Islam and Aisha: In the Prophet’s ﷺ Heart (soon to be published). I have two Classical Islamic Studies licences (Alimiyyah degrees) from Ebrahim College and Al Salam Institute respectively. I have a Masters degree with Distinction in Islamic Law from the Law School at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) at the University of London.

I have a Masters degree with Distinction in Islamic Law from the Law School at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) at the University of London.

I raised my children here in the heart of London to be multi-lingual, with Arabic as one of their languages and to memorise all or large portions of the Qur’an. Some of my children are now active in university Islamic Societies (MSAs) and lead prayers and taraweeh. Alhamdulillah.

I have experienced the struggles of raising children in this environment and have researched parenting and child nurturing extensively. I also know the joy of raising children who are confident and thriving leaders in our community.

I want you to experience that joy.

You can do it too!

I want to share the knowledge with you by giving you the same framework that helped me in my parenting journey so that you, too, can succeed in your mission to raise believers.

Join me in my masterclass and gain the confidence you need to parent Muslim children in the 21st century. This isn’t just any masterclass, it’s…

Have questions about Raising Believers?

Imagine standing on the day of Judgement…

Your deeds are being weighed, and you are given an enormous pile of good deeds. Thousands of Hajj trips, tens of thousands of fasts, prayers, acts of charity and sadaqah of millions.

You turn around and ask where these deeds came from since you did not carry out all of these good deeds yourself.

Now imagine being told that these are the good deeds of all of your children and descendants duplicated upon your scales because it was YOU who taught them the Qur’an, facilitated them on the straight path and made the efforts to…
