The Angry Child


Last Updated on Thursday, 07 May 2015 15:52

A child will most likely get angry if there is something that is stopping him from achieving his objective. When he still gets nowhere, he starts fuming with rage. We should not allow the child to reach this stage. In some homes, it is indeed sad that we incite the child into a fit of rage. This is misconceived as a form of play and affection, whereas this is detrimental to the child.

Often, the child’s anger and rage is as a result of the manner we conduct ourselves. Those little eyes and ears see and hear everything around them and accordingly carry them out. Thus we as parents should display patience and tolerance in the presence of our children.

“The most detested of permitted actions in the sight of Allah Ta‘ala is divorce”.

“Allah Ta‘ala has not created on the surface of the earth anything more hated by Him than divorce.” These are the blessed words of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Our beautiful deen of Islam guides us to maintain a relationship of love and affection. However, if a couple, despite all efforts, cannot reconcile and fear that by remaining together they will transgress the laws and limits of Allah Ta‘ala, in such a situation Allah Ta‘ala has allowed the option of a separation as a last resort.
