A Sahaabi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once mentioned to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah! So-and-so woman performs nafl salaah at night and keeps nafl fasts during the day. However, she has a wicked tongue with which she harms her neighbours.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked, “There is no good in her. She will be punished.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was then asked regarding another woman, “O Rasul of Allah! So-and-so woman suffices on performing the fardh (and sunnah) salaah and keeping the fardh fast of Ramadhaan (i.e. she does not engage in abundant nafl worship). However, she gives pieces of cheese in charity, despite not having anything else, and does not cause harm to anybody.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) remarked, “She will go to Jannah.” (Mustadrak Haakim vol. 4 pg. 166)

Instilling deen within the child is an effort which begins from the very moment the child takes his first breath and begins to bawl. We will, at every turn, juncture and phase of the child’s life, provide guidance in order to mould the child into becoming a true Muslim.

As soon as the child, in his own broken way, tries to pronounce a few words, we will begin teaching him the name of Allah Ta‘ala in the hope that this will be the first word he utters. When the child has reached the age of basic understanding, we will, together with being a practical example of deen, verbally explain the concepts of deen to him. For example, we will introduce our children to Allah Ta‘ala by mentioning and explaining His qualities to them. We will explain that Allah Ta‘ala has created everything and He alone gives life and death.
