THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE EDUCATOR (PART 1)

The major responsibility of the educator; this covers both parents:

1- Spiritual education: to teach your child the great profession of faith “la ilah illa Allah”, to teach your child the basic concepts of Halal and Haram, to order him/her to pray at the age of seven, to nurture him/her on the love of Allah, His Prophet (peace be upon him), and the love of the Qur’an. To teach him/her the major five principles of Islam and the six articles of faith. To instill humility to Allah in his/her heart, and to be mindful of Allah in both of his/her public and personal affairs.

2- Moral education: this sort of education is a fruit of the spiritual education; you are supposed to educate your child on truthfulness and the rest of good morals, to warn him against lying and the rest of wicked traits.

3- Health education: the parent or the educator should observe the health rules for the child, to drive them away from potential areas of ham and illness, to treat his/her illness. To teach them archery, horse riding, and swimming as you see fit and safe. To teach the boys trait of how to be serious and traits of manhood.

“The Happy Life” Sheikh Saalih Al-Fawzaan

This is a subject ignored by many of us and only focused upon by a few of us. “Happiness” is very important and if you are a Muslim father and husband it is very important to raise and nurture your family upon it. Islam has all that is required for one to gain happiness wether he or she is rich or poor. Yet without beneficial knowledge many Muslims take harmful paths to find it. And many use “sadness” as a weapon assisting the Shaytaan against themselves and others and we seek refuge in Allah from this evil way.

Our children need it as it is essential for their coming years especially when life becomes hardest. May Allah bless and preserve our Sheikh Saalih al-Fawzaan.

“Protecting Your Children From Evils On The Internet”

In times such as these our children are exposed to serious evils on the Internet. It is the responsibilities of Muslim parents to watch over and control access of their children’s Internet experiences.

In this video Abu Muhammad al-Looweesi’aani reviews computer software that may help parents monitor and protect their children ensuring a safe and beneficial Internet experience with the help of Allah.

Chapter “Knowledge Precedes Speech & Action”

Bismillaahi ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem

as salaamu alaikum,

Just a little taste of how things go when those who are not qualified are over the affairs of others. And although it’s funny, in a way, to watch it is also sad.

How many of us are in charge today and cause such destruction with our hands and tongue?

So let’s think. As a man you may be the driver, the operator, the father, husband, son, step-father, uncle and brother. Let us fear Allah and be mindful of our trust. Let us be mindful that we have the ability to bring benefit as well as harm. Let’s seek nearness to Allah and do our best to protect the Muslims (and non Muslims) from our harm. Don’t give your good deeds away.

Let’s make du’aa for our brother hoping in return that Allah will have mercy on us and protect us from brining ourselves and our family towards destruction. Let’s focus on ourselves and our families first, the women and children under our care.

Let’s forgive and move on seeking the face of Allah, The Tremendous. The glorious return for the believers is only to Him, The Perfect. Why dwell on the past? But seek forgives from your Glorious Lord, give thanks, move on and prepare for your meeting with The Inheritor, Allah.

(They say): “Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower.” 3:8

85 – “O Allah, Knower of the unseen and the seen, Creator of the heavens and the Earth, Lord and Sovereign of all things, I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except You. I take refuge in You from the evil of my soul and from the evil and shirk of the devil, and from committing wrong against my soul or bringing such upon another Muslim.”

88 – “O Ever Living, O Self-Subsisting and Supporter of all, by Your mercy I seek assistance, rectify for me all of my affairs and do not leave me to myself, even for the blink of an eye.”

Righteousness is a choice. Let’s choose righteousness.
