Loving our Children

Our children are a precious gift from Alláh. But like everything else we possess, they do not belong to us in the absolute sense. They have been loaned to us. We, as Ambassadors of Alláh, are merely trustees of what we have. And therefore, we are answerable as to how we bring up our children, just as we must account for everything else that is loaned or entrusted to us.

So often, a pregnant woman and her husband become very pious and God-fearing, especially in the last few weeks before their child is born. They are anxious and fearful that she may not survive the stress of childbirth, or the child may die, or be born handicapped and abnormal. So they turn to Alláh and they are very submissive to Him. When the child is born normal and healthy, they are so overjoyed that sometimes they even forget to thank Alláh properly. They might even get involved with superstitions and unislamic ways of protecting their child with charms, forgetting that Alláh alone is their guardian and protector.

We are reminded of this in the Noble Quraan: "It is Alláh who created you from a single person and made his mate of like nature in order that he might dwell with her (in love). When they are united she bears a light burden and carries it about (unnoticed). When she grows heavy they both pray to Allah their Lord (saying): "if you will give us a healthy child, we promise we shall (forever) be grateful." But when Alláh gives them a healthy child, they ascribe to others a share in the gift they have received: but Allah is exalted, high above the partners they ascribe to Him." (Sura Al-'Ar-a'f 189-190)

Brothers and Sisters, we, and our parents and our children, come from Alláh, and we will return to Him. Our very first act, when our little child is born, is to dedicate the child to the service of Alláh Ta'aala. We call the Azhaan in the child's ear and we recite verses from the Holy Qur'an and we invite the family, to bear witness to this dedication.

Everyone of us had this experience when we were born. "Allahu Akbar, Ash hadu Alláh ilaha il-lal-laah" "Alláh is Greatest, I witness that there is no-one worthy of worship, except Alláh." These were the first words that came to our ears, even before we could understand their meaning. They are also the last words on our lips, when we die. So, my dear brothers and sisters, why should things be any different in between our birth and our death? If we were dedicated to Alláh at birth, and we return to Him at death, why should we then not worship Him and Him alone, passionately, throughout our life?.

Our children are a special gift from Allah...but this special gift comes with a special offer them constant care and guidance. Little children are great imitators. Just watch any child, how they imitate their parents. Alláh has programmed them to learn from us. We are their role models. We must be ever mindful of the personal example we set for our children. It is this example that they emulate and which will form the basis of their own adult life in years to come.
Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam has said: "My Rabb educated me and made my education most excellent."

What we teach our children at home we must believe in and do ourselves. We cannot tell our children to be honest and trustworthy while we tell lies, behave dishonorably or underpay our employees. We cannot insist that our children perform their salaah regularly while we are seldom home to lead them in the salaah. We cannot teach them the meaning of peace and human dignity, while we allow them to watch movies that degrade and deprave human beings in the name of entertainment. We cannot have two sets of values: one that is pure and good for our children and another that we think, is good enough for us. Such values our children will not accept, and rightly so. They are our children, they love us and want to be like us. And is that asking too much? So, let us not fool ourselves into believing that we can produce good Muslim children while we ourselves remain less than good Muslim parents. We must realise that, good,Islamic values do not flow from our mouths but from our deeds.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Let our words and deeds be of the same substance. Let our deeds become our beliefs in action, our words, made visible.


When terrified of a ruler or a tyrant person or group recite:

"Allahumma innaa nauthu bika ay yafruta alayna ahadum minhum aw ay yatgha"

O Allah I seek refuge in You from that anyone of them should oppress us or trespass (our rights).
Or recite this Dua:

"Allahumma ilaaha Jibraeela wa Miykaeela wa Israafeela wa ilaaha Ibrahima wa Ismaeela wa Ishaaqa aa'fini wa laa tusallitanna ahadam min khalqika alayya bi shay in wa laa taaqata lee bih"

O Allah Diety of Jibraeel, Mikaeel, Israfeel and the diety of Ibrahim, Ismail and Ishaaq, grant me safety and do not let anyone of your creation whom I cannot fight have the better of me.

Thereafter recite this Dua:
"Radiytu bil laahi Rabba wa bil Islaami deena wa bi Muhammedin nabiyya wa bil Quraani hakamaw wa imaama."

I am pleased with Allah as my Rabb, Islam as my religion, Muhammed as my messenger and the Quraan as my judge and leader. (Al Hisnul Haseen, Pg 180)

Three old ladies are sitting in a diner, chatting about various things.

One lady says, "You know, I'm getting really forgetful. This morning, I was standing at the top of the stairs, and I couldn't remember whether I had just come up or was about to go down."

The second lady says, "You think that's bad? The other day, I was sitting on the edge of my bed and I couldn't remember whether I was going to sleep or had just woken up!"

The third lady smiles smugly, "Well, my memory is just as good as it's always been, knock on wood," she says as she raps on the table. Then with a startled look on her face, she asks, "Who's there?"
