Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah my brothers and sisters in Islam, what is the best way to raise children? La subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran yeah you have Lavina terminal OT and full circle alikoum now Allah, Allah azza wa jal, he instructs the believers in salt that the Hadith, he says, Oh you who believe, save yourself and your families from the fire? Save them. What does this mean? First and foremost? How does one save himself from the fire? Obviously, by doing the commandments that Allah azza wa jal commanded us, and by avoiding the prohibitions that Allah subhanho wa Taala informed us of this is how you save yourself from the Hellfire by doing the

00:00:49--> 00:01:30

obligations and the good deeds and by adhering to ato heed saying let Ilaha illa Allah and living by this word, you've saved yourself from the fire. And then how do you save your families from the fire? Earlier all the Allahu Anhu said, a limo home or a depot home. Teach them a limo home will teach them the obligations and also discipline them upon Islamic manners and etiquette. This is how you save your family from the fire by teaching them the obligations of Allah azza wa jal and teaching them what Allah prohibited, and making sure that they avoid and stay away from that which Allah subhanho wa Taala prohibited and you discipline them as well. You teach them good manners, you

00:01:30--> 00:01:46

teach them to give in charity, you teach them to speak the truth, you warn them against lying, you warn them against backbiting, you warn them against slandering and insulting and so on. So this is how you save your family from the fire. Now here

00:01:47--> 00:02:35

we answer the question, what is the best way to raise children and discipline and nurture children? Allah azza wa jal mentioned in this Quran in this area, the fact that he said save yourself first, then he said, save your families. Second, that means the best way to raise children is for you to be a role model for them. This is how it is. So if you are on a path of saving yourself from the fire, by doing the commands and avoiding the prohibitions, and acting like a real believer, and how a true believer should act, then the children are going to imitate this. They're going to copy this. And as a result, you've reached the best children Subhanallah This is why that came first in the age saving

00:02:35--> 00:03:18

yourself first in the family. Imagine you live your life and you're not saving yourself from the fire. You don't pray the prayers. You don't adhere to Allah's commands. You are engaging in the prohibitions. You smoke in front of your children. You look at Al haram in front of your children, you listen to Al haram in front of your children, how are they going to be safe from the fire? How are they going to get up and pray most likely it won't happen. So as a result, we learn that the best way to reach children is for you to be an example and a role model. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, look at your words. How do you speak and refine them, refine them? Fix your words, speak

00:03:18--> 00:03:46

goodness, look at your actions. If they're minimal, increase them and encourage your children to do the same thing and look at your manners and your behavior. If it's no good, then fix it. Because with all this change, you will see it directly in your children. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us acceptance and to forgive us and to admit us into the paradise Allahu Allah.
