Punishment Injured His Pride


Last Updated on Sunday, 27 January 2013 10:37

When a child does something wrong, the punishment needs to be meted out in such a way that the child develops an aversion to the misdeed and not to the person meting out the punishment. As adults we value our self-respect and we dislike being embarrassed before others. The child as well, likes to preserve his self-dignity and respect.

Smile Away Sadness


Last Updated on Monday, 07 January 2013 18:10

A pleasant countenance is also one of the bounties of Allah Ta’ala. A simple way of removing ones grief and keeping happy is to smile at everyone. It is obvious that a woman is not permitted to smile at a strange man. In fact, smiling at strange men will only increase her grief. Put it to the test, smile at someone and automatically that person smiles back. The heart is almost delighted when a person with a happy countenance is seated near one. On the other hand everyone wishes to distance themselves from a person who is straight faced and grumpy. Smiling and cheerfulness is a very healthy form of exercise. If facilitates the digestion of the food. The happiness of the heart is as effective as good medication. If we want good for ourself, we will continue smiling. Together with a smiling face, let our eyes also smile. Be happy and make others happy as well.

“Holidays,” in the life of a child, simply means, “Freedom.” The child is no longer restricted by school and madrasah hours. Thus the child feels absolved of all forms of responsibility. This “freedom” makes the child very vulnerable to the attacks of nafs (the desire) and shaytaan (the devil). However our beautiful deen of Islam comes to our rescue. We are reminded of our daily duties as a Muslim. Our salaah, quraan, zikr and du’aa are the forts for our protection. Every parent’s concern is, “Will my child survive this holiday, in an environment of sin and temptation?”
