Can you say anything better of a believer other than that he/she does everything fi sabillah (for the sake of Allah)?
BAD CHILDREN The child who errs is forgiven by Allah, and if he dies in childhood, he automatically goes to heaven.
How do we use positive reinforcement to teach our children? Unfortunately many parents ignore their child's good actions and only comment on the bad actions. INTEGRATING ISLAM INTO LIFE One of the most important aspects of raising your children to be Muslims is to introduce the idea that Allah is also happy with their good actions.
If you say that what they did or are doing is making you and Allah happy, then the child begins to associate good behavior with acting for the pleasure of Allah, which in a nutshell, is exactly what being a good Muslim involves.
This mercy of Allah should guide us as we guide our children.
The major 'institution of learning' for each child is his family, and the major 'professors' of this institution are the parents.
ROLE MODELING The most effective way to teach anything to anybody is to be a role model.
To Him belongs everything that dwells in the night and in the day. Say, "Why should I then choose Allah as my Protector?
He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the One who sustains everything but is sustained by none.
" It is our obligation and duty as parents to teach our children so that they grow up to be believing, practicing Muslims.
Sending the child to an Islamic weekend school or to a full-time Islamic school is an important but minor part of their Islamic education.
