“Assalamu ‘alaykum ahl al-diyar min al-muminin wa’l-Muslimin, wa inna in sha Allah bikum lahiqun, as alu Allaha lana wa lakum al-‘afiyah (peace be upon you O people of the dwellings, believers and Muslims, In sha Allah we will join you, I ask Allah to keep us and you safe and sound).”
Abdallah ibn Buraidah reported from his father that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “I had forbidden you to visit graves, but now you may visit them. It will remind you of the Hereafter.” [Muslim, Ahmad]
Aishah also reported: “I asked: ‘What should I say when I pass by a graveyard, O Messenger of Allah?’ He replied, ‘Say, “Peace be upon the believing men and women dwelling here. May Allah grant mercy to those who have preceded us and those who are to follow them. Certainly, Allah willing, we will join you”‘.” [Muslim]
Imam Malik and some Hanafi scholars, and, according to one report from Ahmad, most of the scholars hold it permissible for women to visit graves. This is based on the preceding hadith from ‘Aishah, “What should I say to them, O Messenger of Allah when visiting graves?” Abdallah ibn Abi Mulaikah is also reported to have said, “Once ‘Aishah returned after visiting the graveyard. I asked, ‘O Mother of the Believers, where have you been?’ She said: ‘I went out to visit the grave of my brother Abd ar-Rahman.’ I asked her: ‘Didn’t the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, prohibit visiting graves?’ She said, ‘Yes, he did forbid visiting graves during the early days, but later on he ordered us to visit them’.” [Al-Hakim and Al-Baihaqi]
Anas reported: “The Prophet, peace be upon him, saw a woman crying by the grave of her son, and said to her, ‘Fear Allah, and be patient.’ She replied, ‘What do you care about my tragedy?’ When he went away, someone told her, ‘Indeed, that was the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him.’ The woman felt extremely sorry and she immediately went to the Prophet’s house, where she did not find any guards. She called out: ‘O Messenger of Allah! I did not recognize you.’ The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, ‘Verily patience is needed at the time of the first affliction’.” [Bukhari and Muslim]
This supports the argument in favour of the permissibility of women visiting graves, for the Prophet, peace be upon him, saw her at the grave and did not show his disapproval of it.
The purpose of visiting graves is to remember the Hereafter, which is something that both men and women need. Men are by no means more in need of this reminder than women.

Over the years, we have had successes with very young students but we recognize that every child is different and some might have difficulty interacting with a teacher online. In general, we found that starting from age 7, there are rarely any issues with teaching online.
For younger ages, a guardian might need to accompany the student during the lessons initially to provide support until the student gets used to his/her teacher.
