Teach Your Children To Make Dua

Download free printable to help children make dua below.

Dua is a Muslim's power tool throughout life. It's a part of our worship to rely on Allah so we need to use it every day. We also need to teach our children to make dua as well. In my previous post, I've written about the two things that you need to get your duas for your children answered. In this post, I will talk about ways to encourage your children to make dua for themselves and others.

When you teach your children to make dua, you're teaching them to turn to Allah for all their needs. When they're happy, sad, worried, depressed - whatever the mood is, there is always Allah there for them. It'll give them hope to carry on and an optimism that everything will turn out alright.

How to Make Dua for Your Children

Allah says (Quran, Ghafir 40:60) what translates as:

Call Me: I will respond to you.

This means that Allah will answer your dua. So if you have a need then ask it of Allah. If you need something for your children or you need help in raising your children then raise your hands and supplicate to Allah.

Here is a little story about a mother's dua for her son. Imam al-Bukhari's mother used to worship and make dua a lot. Allah honoured her and her son remarkably. Her son Muhammad [Bukhari] lost his eye sight when he was young and his mother saw Ibraheem al-Khaleel (the Prophet Ibraheem) in a dream and he said to her: "O you, indeed Allah has returned the eyesight of your son due to your supplicating a lot.’ In the morning Allah had returned his eyesight." [Collected in 'Sharh Usool Itiqaad Ahl ul Sunnah Laalka’aee 9/290] Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya.

One Advice for Fasting Parents

We have entered into Ramadan so I'd like to wish everyone a Ramadan Mubarak. I also wanted to remind all fasting parents with one piece of advice that Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, gave to all fasting persons. 

If you keep this one advice at the top of your mind then it will change your behaviour. And after 30 days of putting this advice into practice then it should become a good habit that will continue even after Ramadan.

What is that one advice?
