BEING AN EXAMPLE!
If we want our kids to be righteous then we have to be the example because children are great imitators and they also emulate whatever they see and hear.
We cannot get away by telling children to do things while we ourselves don’t do it. You can’t expect your children to behave whatever you preach them. They may obey you right now but will never practice it for lifelong.
We may be imperfect but we can start working on it now.

Nowadays its getting difficult to keep children away from screen. So, letting good story books to read instead of mobiles, television and video games, and reading religious books with children can definitely help themselves to learn something good every day.
- 𝘾𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨- Keeping surroundings clean from the impermissible things is important to inculcate healthy habits. Following the basic healthy habits like taking a bath, brushing twice a day, wearing neat and clean clothes, combining hair etc make a better person. As it is in Hadith also, Cleanliness is half of faith (Sahih Muslim). Surely, “Allah loves those who keep themselves clean and pure”.
- 𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙮𝙚𝙧𝙨- Do not tell your children- ” go and pray”. But rather tell them: come and pray with me, so that we may enter heaven together. “

PS. In this pic, our son was performing Umrah with us. Because of the crowd we decided to perform Umrah at night with kids. Alhamdulillah for everything.
