Owning a sacred responsibility

By Mirza Yawar Baig

Muslim children must grow up seeing their parents subordinating their lives and their desires to Allah and to the Deen that His Messenger brought. They must grow up with the awe of nothing but Allah in their hearts, seeing their parent’s joy in submitting to Allah, actively seeking opportunities to do more and more. The Muslim child must understand the meaning of connection with Allah by seeing the look of intense devotion and concentration on the face of his parents when they stand in Salah. She must feel the love of Allah kindled in her heart by listening to the Qur’an recited with love, understanding and a longing to meet its author. She must feel the trembling of her heart even when she hears words that she may not understand yet. Allah must not be a strange word to her, mentioned only during worship. Allah and His Messenger must be mentioned often and related to the daily activities of parents and children until they become part of their existential awareness.

A Muslim child, brought up right, will yearn to learn the Qur’an that he’s heard his parents recite so well. He will not need to be persuaded, much less forced, to do so. Children imitate and learn to respect and value what they see their elders valuing. If they see their elders valuing money over everything else, that is what they will value. If they see them value Allah and the Sunnah of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), that is what they learn also to value. If they see their parents changing, justifying, twisting or simply ignoring the rules of Islam in order to fulfill their desires, they also learn that it is acceptable to live a life of hypocrisy – claiming to be Muslim, yet disobeying Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).

If they see the contrary then they learn the right place of everything, the world in its place and the Creator of the world in His place to be loved and obeyed without question or argument. So the connection with Allah is what must be built first.

Umbrella Thief

One day on his way to work, my husband, Jermaine, stopped at the cafeteria as it began to rain.

Forgetting that he hadn't brought an umbrella, he reached for the nearest one when he got up to leave.

"That's my umbrella," a woman immediately scolded.

Abashed at his mistake, he walked on to his office. He was drenched by the time he arrived.

Once there, he discovered three umbrellas that he had left in the office over the months, and decided to bring them home at the end of the day.

That afternoon he ran into the same woman who had confronted him earlier.

She looked at the umbrellas, then at him, and tartly remarked, "You did real well for yourself today, didn't you?"
