Know that we are living? Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu you brothers and sisters, welcome back to our program, Islam quest in which we are addressing a very important question, what are the ways to bring our children as obedient once. And we have mentioned that we will discuss in this episode, the top 10 ways to raise or bring your children in a better way, we've already covered three top ways to bring our children. And we have mentioned the first and foremost way before even getting to the point of raising our children, we need to select a righteous woman for us, we need to look for a woman who is pious, who can help and cooperate with us in a way that would bring our
children in a better way. And we have mentioned the second way to bring our children, my dear brothers and sisters, that we need to be an ideal parent for them, we need to be good so that they can be also good by following us. And we have said the third way is to instill the love of Allah and His Messenger in the hearts and minds of the people. The fourth way to bring our children in a better way is to attach them with the glorious Koran. Attach them with the Glorious Quran by helping them by helping them
to read, to understand, to ponder, to relate to reflect the ayat of the glorious Koran from the childhood. If they become the Companion of the Quran, they would always follow insha Allah, the commands mentioned in the Quran, and that is the food that you will see that they will always be obedient to you.
Because of our children's failure is their distance from the Quran. So we need to bring them back and attach them with the Quran we need to create and develop that love of Quran in their hearts in their minds, so that they become the Companion of the Quran. The fifth way to bring our children better, my dear brothers and sisters, is to keep them in the good company.
Always keep a watch, always keep a watch over their company or their surroundings. Because you might raise them in a better way. But then when they go out, when they go out, they will have that influence from the surroundings. So make sure that they are in the good company. They should be in the company of those children whose parents are also good, and they are also good. So make yourself keen in terms of watching over their surroundings.
The sixth way, my dear brothers and sisters, to bring our children better
is to create
an environment. create an atmosphere that is full of demand in our homes. create an atmosphere and environment of demand in our homes. For example.
Teach them the Quran and the Sunnah, as diverse as lectures, as talks in your homes.
Prepare a library of Islamic books and other knowledgeable books. Make sure make sure that the environment that they live in 24 by seven when they are in the homes, they should feel they should have that supportive eemaan environment in the homes, make sure that you help and support them by creating an Islamic library by helping them with the tools with which are through which they can be empowered in their demand. They can sense the importance of demand. So you as a responsible parent, having the expectation of bringing them up in a better way must create an environment of a man in your homes. The seventh way my brothers and sisters to bring our children in a better way is that
remove all the negative influence in the home. Remove that negative influence that may harm, spoil and disturb your children.
islamically for example,
avoid, avoid having any channel, in your home in your television, which shows haram stuff, which shows things which are absolutely against Islam.
Keep the watch within the home,
about their games, if they are playing. Most of the games today are the best in ideology were in. They have no sense of morale in terms of spoiling the children,
my dear brothers and sisters, you as responsible Muslim parent, you need to make sure you need to make sure that your children are not influenced with the negative environment in your homes and you as a responsible parent, need to remove that obstacle, that negative influence in the home so that so that they feel they feel it is supportive, and they will feel better in terms of growing.
The way my brothers and sisters to bring our children is to make sure that you share with them. You share with them the stories of the righteous people.
share with them the stories the Quran is the full is full of stories, authentic moral, motivating stories, share the Quran with them, share the stories mentioned in the Quran with them. Like for example, should the story of Ibrahim peace be upon him how he dealt with his own father, who was a golfer, who was a person who is was a disbeliever the person who used to worship and make idols, how he used to treat and deal with his own father, share with them the stories which are motivating, righteous, and good.
Most of the children, they love to listen to stories, they love to learn stories, so share with them the stories of the Sahaba
the companions of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. What was their zeal towards Islam? What was their involvement and engagement in Islam, how important they used to feel to be an ideal Muslim and this
affects on their minds and this affects in their hearts, my dear brothers and sisters, we the Muslim ummah. Alhamdulillah we are blessed. We are blessed with the authentic and pure stories of the prophets, mentioned in the Quran. We are also blessed with the stories in the biographies of the holy fire Rashidi Abu Bakr, Omar Osman Ali Rania lover and as many we know, that there are a lot of material authentic material available,
about their stories will love if you share the stories with them, if you share the stories with them,
of those people who are righteous, who will go obedient to Allah subhanaw taala, sincere towards Allah subhanho wa Taala they will also have the impact on their minds. So share with them the stories of the prophets and messengers, the stories of companions and the stories of the righteous priestesses of the past.
My dear brothers and sisters, also, one of the ways to bring your children in a better way is to make them
responsible about the deeds, nurture the feeling of accountability in their hearts and minds. Let them have the sense of accountability, let them know and understand that they are accountable since their childhood. They are accountable to Allah subhanaw taala. So they even in your absence, will hold themselves in behaving wrong. They will hold themselves in getting involved in wrong things because when they know when they understand that Allah subhanaw taala is watching them and Allah subhanaw taala will take account from them and lots of panatela will give them money.
management and will give grants and rewards when they have the sense of responsibility. When they get the sense of accountability, they will grow well. And that is a very vital element that we you and me as parents need to implement in our lives. Give them the sense of accountability, accountability to Allah subhanho to Allah. So even if they, they are in front of us, or behind us, in our presence, or in our absence, they will do those things which are pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's how, that's how my brothers and sisters, they will become obedient to you. The last thing, the 10th thing that we would like to share in this episode, my dear brothers and
sisters, in bringing our children as obedient once we need to pray to Allah subhanaw taala we need to pray to Allah subhanaw taala as it's a beautiful prayer, mentioned in the Quran, in Surah, Furqan surah number 25 and number 74, in which Allah subhanaw taala helped us to ask him robina or our Lord, habla na min as vergina was the Ria Tina kurata Aryan was Tina mama or Lord
grace grant us grant us from among our own wives and our offspring
the tranquility, the coolness of arise
and make us among those who are the leaders of Metatron.
This is a very powerful one, my brothers and sisters, we need to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala for our own children. And you will see if we implement these top 10 ways to bring our children you will see the impact on them. And this act should be done not periodically. Now. It needs to be done constantly and regularly, unless and until they become absolutely mature. In terms of understanding and sensing and deciding by themselves. we as parents have a crucial responsibility in making our children better. It is up to you, in me to make our children make or break and we can make them by following these and many other constructive ways to bring them better, as good Muslims as ideal
Muslims. I would like to end my talk with the prayer to Allah subhanho wa Taala that may Allah subhanaw taala help us
to bring our children in a better way. May Allah subhanaw taala help us to nurture them the feeling of accountability. May Allah subhanaw taala help us to instill the love of Allah and His Messenger in our children's hearts and mind. May Allah subhanaw taala help us to be the good example for them.
