As part of the activities of the 22nd Amman International Book Fair. In his lecture, Professor Dr. Mohammed Amin Hamed Al-Qudah discussed how Islam's focus on the family is unique, emphasizing the values, divine guidance, etiquettes, and legal rulings that shape the Islamic family system. He highlighted how the Islamic family system stands out with its principles, branches, concepts, and contents, aiming to create a model family in its unique way of life. In Islam, the family is nurtured within the framework of faith, guided by legislation, and regulated by virtue.

Dr. Al-Qudah explained how Islam places great importance on building the family, emphasizing the necessity of choosing partners before marriage and establishing the foundations of marital relationships through the comprehensive Islamic social system that governs marriage, divorce, inheritance, wills, and child-rearing within the family. He stressed that Islam's attention to the family is evident through a set of legislations that ensure its construction in the best and most complete manner, in line with the Islamic vision where the home is the primary environment in which childhood is nurtured, modernity is embraced, characteristics are developed, and adaptation occurs. Building a righteous family guarantees proper upbringing of individuals, preserves society from decay and corruption, and fosters a strong nation. Therefore, the Islamic family system is comprehensive, providing a coordinated and organized educational approach that considers the interests of individuals, families, and society from before birth to after death.
Dr. Al-Qudah affirmed that the family is responsible for instilling Islamic principles and values in a child's psyche, teaching them religious obligations and worship once they reach the age of seven. The practice of religious duties by children fosters a sense of closeness, tranquility, and serenity within the family. The role of the family is crucial in influencing youth, and parents bear the responsibility of providing proper religious and value-based education for their children.

He also highlighted the various functions of the family as the foundation and source from which children emerge, emphasizing that, in most cases, children's behavior and personalities are shaped within the family. The Islamic family is distinctive in fulfilling its primary and important role as the general nurturing environment for children and the primary school for upbringing and guidance.

After the lecture, a book signing ceremony took place for two books: "The Family in the Shade of Islam" and "Child Upbringing in the Shade of Islam," which were launched at the 22nd Amman International Book Fair. "The Family in the Shade of Islam" consists of eleven chapters, beginning with introductions and concluding summaries. It covers topics such as marriage in Islam, establishing the family in Islam, rights and duties in the Muslim household, family harmony, the extended family, and family planning (both theoretical and practical aspects). The book also discusses challenges within the family (family breakdown) and the family's role in international conferences, as well as the family in Western society. Finally, it addresses the responsibility of the community in forming and protecting the family.

The book "Child Upbringing in the Shade of Islam" consists of nine chapters, each starting with introductions and concluding summaries. It serves as a guide for educators and discusses the educator, the curriculum, and the learner, touching on qualities and roles of educators, teaching methods, behavior management, and disciplinary alternatives. It also addresses misconceptions in child upbringing and contemporary challenges, concluding with a discussion on the third millennium and our children in an open and changing world, as well as the developmental characteristics of life stages (childhood, adolescence, and youth) and parental responsibilities towards them.
