The Aims of Islamic Parenting


If you’re a new parent (or even a l time parent) and don’t know where to start with parenting your child then here are the top 5 important aims of Islamic parenting.

1. To be Righteous Muslims
The first and most important is to raise children to worship our Creator, Allah, and follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (s). When your child is young the best way to do this is to be the model. Let your child observe you doing acts of worship. Lay the foundation and encourage your child to imitate you.

And so the child has no limit on his or her behaviour and can do whatever they want.

There are several remedies to this.

Why Your Child Should Engage with Nature

 

Research says that engaging with nature reduces stress in both adults and children. For children, the added benefit is that it gets them to be physically active and helps them develop cognitively through imagination and dramatic play. There is also social learning through interactions with others. However, the most important reason for Muslim children to engage with the natural world is that they are learning about Allah through His creations.
