As I was saying, our beloved prophet masala Salaam said, it's to say Hadith, which mentioned hypnagogia Hadith number 224, our beloved Prophet said,
Taliban ilmi seeking knowledge
for either to Allah Allah Islam
is obligatory on every Muslim seeking knowledge is obligated on every Muslim man or woman. Now when we give knowledge to our children,
we have to see to it that we give them proper knowledge. Knowledge can be broadly divided into two types.
One is the basic knowledge of Islam and second knowledge, what is required by the community. It is the duty of every parent
that he should educate the children with the proper Islamic knowledge. Number one, most important is to heed that believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we should not associate partners with anyone to Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanaw taala should not be associated with anyone else. tauheed number one, then all the pillars, which most of us know, but we should impart it in the right way to our children, about Salah, about soccer, about hygiene, about fasting is very important.
And but natural knowledge of the Quran.
This Quran is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which was revealed to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
Yesterday in Bedford
at a talk on Al Quran should it be read with understanding and Atos they the best gift that the parent can you give the child is the grant and make the child understand the Quran. Most of us Muslims, we teach our children to read Arabic, they can read Arabic but they can't understand. If we teach them the language of the Quran, the Arabic as a language, that is the best gift you can give and inshallah towards the end of my talk I will deal in discuss that in detail.
The second type of knowledge is a knowledge required by the community. Knowledge it makes a person a doctor
makes a person an engineer, a lawyer, a scientist, an agriculturist. This is to required for the betterment of the community for the betterment of the society. But when we are acquiring the second type of knowledge, we should see to it, that when we acquire scientific knowledge, when we learn about mathematics, geography, history, this knowledge should get you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala should not take you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. If this knowledge takes you away from Allah subhanaw taala that knowledge is not correct knowledge. It's not correct education, it should bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For example, when we learn medicine, we learn how to
save the lives of 1000s of human beings. But in that same medical knowledge.
When we learn how to do abortion, the youngsters voting center and then they want to abort.
So using this knowledge for activities, which are wrong, we should abstain from that abortion for saving the life of the mother. If she has a health problem, Islam gives permission. Other Allah says in Surah Surah chapter number 17 verse number 31. And so the Anam chapter number six, verse number 151, that killed not your children for water systems, killing of children is prohibited. So whatever knowledge you acquire, it should be for the betterment of humanity and get you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever moral values you are learning, we should see to it that when we put our children in the school, that school should have bring the children properly. Imagine if we put our
children in the convent school.
Many of those values don't match with the value of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is like we are tying the hands and legs of our children and putting them in water and asking them to swim.
How is this one?
So when we put them in a school seat when you put them in a proper school
if the culture and society and the school
teaches you manners, it should be good Islamic manners.
