The Islamic Way to Raise the Children

Allah (S.W.T.) has entrusted parents with their children. Parents bear the responsibility to raise their children in the Islamic way. If they do that they will be blessed in this life and in the Hereafter, and if they don't, they will get bad result during their life and in the Hereafter.

Imams Bukhari and Muslim reported that the prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) said, "All of you are heads of a group and all of you are responsible for your groups; the ruler is the head of state and he is responsible for his people, the man is head of his family and responsible for his family, the woman is the head in her husband's house and she is responsible for the house. In short all of you are heads and responsible for your group." 

Fasting in the month of Rajab


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave and Messenger.

There is disagreement among scholars concerning fasting the month of Rajab. Some scholars believe it is desirable to fast the month of Rajab for the following:

A) General arousal of an interest in fast. This, in fact, is a comprehensive rule with so many proofs.

B) Special arousal of an interest in fasting the sacred months, i.e. Rajab, Thul Qi'dah, Thul Hijjah and Muharram. In addition to that, the majority of Muslim scholars believe that is recommendable to fast those months, especially Rajab. They based their opinion on the following Ahadeeth.
