And this hadith gives us a very important foundation in understanding the importance of being of use to others. And that's important for us to teach our children, that the value of an individual in society is linked to the value that they provide others through caring for others. And that can include a whole number of ways. So it's important to introduce the child to this whole concept that you as an individual need to be thinking about others. How can I help out how can I ask about my parents, my siblings, brothers and sisters, uncles, aunties, my neighbors, my teachers, my friends at school, and also how can I help other people in society, those who are in need of help, maybe
they are in need of financial help, maybe I need a physical help, maybe they are in need of some sorts of care and support, emotions, lots of stuff. So it's a great opportunity for us to tell them that the best, the best way that we can be of use in society is to care for others help others and Allah Subhana Allah loves people who are like this, and the prophets is teaching us that this is the best category of people
