The Rights of our Children

Untitled Document

.......................................................................................................................

A man once came to Hazrat ‘Umar and complained of his son’s disobedience. Hazrat ‘Umar , who was the Khalifa at the time, called for the boy and apprized him of his disobedience and his neglect of his father’s rights.

The boy asked Hazrat ‘Umar : “O Ameerul Mumineen, does a child have any rights over his father?”

Hazrat ‘Umar replied : “Yes, of course.”

On inquiry as to what they were, Hazrat ‘Umar explained: “He should choose the mother of his children, give him a good name and teach him Deen (religion).”

The boy then said : “O Ameerul Mumineen, my father has done none of this. My mother was a woman of ill repute. The name given to me by my father is Ju’al (which had a derogatory connotation) and he has not taught me Deen.”

Hazrat ‘Umar then addressed the father : “You complain to me about the disobedience of your son, yet you failed in your duty to him before he failed in his duty to you. You wronged him before he wronged you.”

Our responsibility to our children demands from us, far more consideration, concern and effort. Directing our children to the obedience of Allah Ta’ala is an obligation which we will, inevitably have to render an account for on the Day of Judgement. The Qur`aan Sharief and Ahadith instruct and exhort the fulfilment of these rights.

Allah Ta’ala states :

“O People of Imaan! Save yourselves and your families from a fire whose fuel is men and stones…”
[Surah At-Tahreem 66 : 6]
 
Protection and salvation from the fire of Jahannum lies in teaching our children Aqaa-id, Qur`aan, Fiqh, Sunnats and other necessary tenets of Islam which form their Tarbiyyah (correct upbringing). Accompanied with du’aa, this will, Insha-Allah, be the means of their Hidayat (guidance) and Istiqaamat (steadfastness).

In the Tafseer of the Ayat, Hazrat Ali had stated : “Teach your family acts of virtue.”

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) also emphasized these obligations : “Each one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock…A man is a ruler in his family, and he will be questioned about those under his care. A woman is a ruler in the house of her husband and she will be questioned about those under her care…”
