parenting starts before you have the children.
you discuss parenting before children and the question you should ask yourself, why do you want to have children? When people come to us for premarital counseling? We asked them that. Why do you want to have children?
I believe in all humility. It is once you understand that you are here to make the world better that you met it. You want to have children to continue in your footsteps in whatever manner Allah shows them. So they also work towards leaving the world better than the matter because they grew up watching their parents trying to make the world a better place. So you will become second jariya for your parents, and your children become sadaqa jariya for you. And that is why it is so important to raise children correctly, no secrets. You do it as a team, you're Allah first you teach them that you make them respect humanity, and to just want to commit and dedicate as much as they can towards
developing that humanity.
