How do I inspire my children to love Allah.

00:00:07--> 00:00:46

One of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to our children is to focus on the internal. Many times children are taught the external actions, the external deeds such as prayer, fasting in the month of Ramadan, wearing the hijab, for the sisters, and so on and so forth, we find that there's a lot of emphasis on the external but not always on the internal. So more importantly than only focusing on the external is to combine with it the spiritual aspect.

Why because if the parent feels like the child is praying, or fasting or doing something only out of fear because of the parents presence, what happens then when the child is somewhere else or the parents are no longer around, because they will not always be around. So we find that if you instill the love of Allah subhana wa tada in their hearts and their the consciousness of Allah in their hearts from a

young age and and do not wait until later, you will find that inshallah This is something they will take with them wherever they go.
