The Children’s Rights in Islam (part 1)

The Children’s Rights in Islam (part 1)

Author: Ustadz Abu Ahmad Said Yai

A child is a gift from Allah the Glorified and Exalted, a gift that increases the joy of its parents. A joy that could not be measured with wealth.

A child is a favor from Allah, thus, it is proper for a couple to be grateful to Allah for His favor. Allah the Glorified and Exalted decreed,

{لِلَّهِ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ يَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ إِنَاثًا وَيَهَبُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ الذُّكُورَ (49) أَوْ يُزَوِّجُهُمْ ذُكْرَانًا وَإِنَاثًا وَيَجْعَلُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ عَقِيمًا إِنَّهُ عَلِيمٌ قَدِيرٌ (50)} [الشورى:49ـ50]

“The dominion of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah. He creates whatever He pleases. He grants females to whomever He pleases and males to whomever He pleases, or grants them a mix of males and females, and causes whomever He pleases to be barren. He is All- Knowing, All-Powerful.” (Chapter Asy Syuura/The Consultation:49-50)

Among the way to be grateful is to pay attention to the children’s rights, which in turn will lead to a harmonious relationship between family members, obedient children, and the forming of their righteous attitudes that in future will be ready to build their religion, nation, and country.

How to Treat the Ailments of the Heart

By: Abdul Majid Bin Abdul Aziz Az-Zahim

1. Allah the Glorified and Exalted decreed,

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ قَدْ جَاءَتْكُم مَّوْعِظَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَشِفَاءٌ لِّمَا فِي الصُّدُورِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

“Mankind! Now there has come to you an exhortation from your Lord, a healing for the ailments of the hearts, and a guidance and mercy for those who believe.” (Chapter Yunus:57)

2. The Messenger of Allah –peace and prayer of Allah be upon him- always recited the following du’a:

((يَا مُقَلِّبَ اْلقُـلُوْبِ، ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِيْ عَلَى دِيْنِكَ))

“O Allah Who turns the heart, please strengthen my heart upon Your religion.” (Narrated by At-Tirmidzi: 2/20, Sheikh Al Albani said: ‘It is a sound hadith’)

He recited the du’a plenty of times, particularly during prostration. He knew that if the heart is good, then the whole body will be good top. But if it is rotten, then the other body parts will be rotten beyond repair.

Behind the Glittering of the Market

Behind the Glittering of the Market

How do we feel about the market? Do we love it excessively? Do we feel immense pleasure and like to stay in it? Are we one of those people who are often and fond of entering and spending our time in it?

Before answering those questions, a muslim man and woman should know that he or she shouldn’t love or hate something based on his/her desire. Instead, he/she should love or hate something because of Allah the Glorified and Exalted. He/she should love what Allah loves, and hate what Allah hates. A muslim also should love anything that could bring him closer to Allah the Glorified and Exalted, and hate anything that could drive him away from Him.
