Important Message to All Muslim Parents.
Allah The Most High mentioned the affair of our families in His Glorious Book when He said:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ
O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded.
During the blessed month of Ramadan it was witnessed that Muslim parents were very keen on making sure their children woke before fajr in order to feed them food that would nourish them during the day .we did so because we feared the long hours they would be fasting ,but what about their long standing in from of Allah on the day of judgement? Do we think of that day? Do we make sure to feed them tawheed,sunnah,eeman and taqwa throughout the year so that they are prepared on that day? some of us rarely wake our children for salat al fajr, but we are only concerned for their wellbeing in Ramadan, but not thereafter?
our Lord said:
إِنَّ الْخَاسِرِينَ الَّذِينَ خَسِرُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَأَهْلِيهِمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَلا ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ
Indeed, the losers are the ones who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Unquestionably, that is the manifest loss.”[Az-Zumar:Verse 15]
