UPBRINGING CHILDREN IN ISLAM

The Messenger (SAWAW) of Allah stated:
"Be kind to your children, and excel in this kindness."

He also said:
" Train your children in three things: The love of your Prophet, to love the Ahlul Bayt, and the recitation of the Quran."

The Holy Prophet (SAWAW) proclaimed:
"The parents must not be stubborn with their child just as the child must not disobey the parents."

He also said:
"Among the rights of the child over the parent are three: To give him a good name, to teach him to write and to marry him when he comes of age."

Another hadith of Allah's Messenger (SAWAW) states:
"When a person's son matures and he has the financial ability to marry him but does not do so, the boy will commit sin and the sin will be on the father."

Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (AS) said:
"Train your children to seek knowledge."

Imam Sadiq (AS) explained:
"A child plays for seven years, learns the Book for seven years, and learns the halal and haram for seven years."

Sadiq-e-Aley Mohammed (SAWAW) also said:
"He to whom is born a daughter and does not harm her, does not deny her, and does not favor his son over her, Allah will grant him paradise for her sake."

Another tradition by him says:
"Daughters are compassionate, always willing, and are blessings."
