Causing Moral Decay in our Children

One of the main reasons for the moral decay in many children is that when there is an occasion which demands love and affection, we punish and shout the child, and when the occasion warrants admonition, we show the child love and affection.

Often the child makes a mistake, and on realising his mistake is remorseful and intends to make amends. At this juncture, the child needs our warmth and support. If at such a time instead of supporting the child, one gets angry and reprimands him over his mistake, it may break his spirit and courage to change and rectify himself. In future he will not even consider correcting his mistake as he will think to himself “Whether I change or not, my parents will still shout at me.”

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)
