Great character building lessons for Muslim kids

February 16, 2017

Pushing a fear of hellfire and punishment in small children can be extremely detrimental to their relationship with Allah. Their Iman is just beginning to gently grow, like a seedling pushing a shoot out of the earth and experiencing the comfort of the rays of sun for the first time.

When you have a deep love for Allah, amazing things happen! There’s a bounce in your step; there’s a comfort in your soul; there’s hope in your heart; there’s sincerity in your prayers; there’s just ‘magic’ all around! Of course, we want to raise our children to have that love. Here’s how we do it:

1. Keep reminding your children that Allah loves them seventy times more than you do. To make this easier to visualise, employ some colourful sweets - make two piles, one with one sweet and the other with seventy.

Being ugly or beautiful is not all about the shape of your nose or the colour of your skin -  as some people might have you think. This means everyone can definitely be beautiful.

It feels safer, just because someone is watching. Well bismillah is like that, except it is Allah's attention you call out for - and you get it every time! Imagine that! Allah watching over whatever you do to make sure it goes well - that's what bismillah is...

 

 

I say bismillah before I eat. 

 

I say bismillah when I come home.

 

I say bismillah before reciting from the Qur’an.
