How do we make the tarbiyah of our children?

1. Win their confidence: Firstly we have to win the confidence of our children. This can be obtained by adopting the characteristics mentioned in part one. By winning their confidence, they will take their parents as their role models and take to heart whatever advices are given to them. 

2. Narrate to them incidents of the pious: Stories play a vital role in moulding the mind of a child. Whatever a child hears in the form of a story is more impressionable than just mere facts. Daily fix some time to read an incident from the lives of the Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam), Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum), and the Salafus Saaliheen (pious predecessors) before putting them to bed. This is extremely beneficial. Experience bears testimony that this method is very effective for tarbiyah. The greatest benefit of narrating stories to children is that it instils the value of deen into their minds and hearts. After narrating the incident, explain to them the morals or the lessons learnt there from.

The Gift of a Partner

In a marriage there are many signs by which we can recognize our Creator, Allah Ta‘ala. One such sign is that Allah Ta‘ala has created for us partners from amongst ourselves, from amongst our own class and type. It is not asked of us to marry some other species of creation. Thus do not just look at one’s spouse as one’s beloved partner in life, but rather as the “gift” that has been presented to us by Allah Ta‘ala. When one recieves a gift, instead of looking at the quantity and quality of the gift, one should instead look at the one who has given the gift. Any sensible person greatly treasures a gift given to him/her by a pious personality, even though it maybe something insignificant. In the same way Allah Ta‘ala has given us our partner as a gift. Therefore, always consider this and express gratitude to Allah Ta‘ala for his gift.

1. Learn to forgive your husband. Remember the English adage 'To err is human, to forgive is Divine.'

2. Misunderstandings and minor differences should not be suppressed. Rather discuss them in an amicable manner, or else this could ultimately lead to a broken marriage (Allah Ta’ala save us.)
