Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“Your Lord will spread out for you of His mercy and will prepare for you from your affair facility.” Surah Al-Kahf – QN18:16, reminds those who, out of fear of the overwhelming influences around them, are plagued by the question, ‘How can I teach my children to cope with the negative influences around them?’, that studies have confirmed the greatest influence, even greater than friends, school or the media, in determining the character and direction of children, to be their parents; with the understanding to pass on the mantle of Faith, make your children “believe in their Lord, and HE will increase them in guidance.” QN18:13.
In other words, like the situation in a relay race, it’s only when the story of future generations is told, will parents get to know how they fared.
So let the knowledge that:
1) When we commit to that which the Almighty has taught us from our youth, He will work with us;
2) He will work through us; and
3) He will help us raise children who’ll pick up our legacy of faith and carry it further than we did;
Teach you, as we thank God it’s another blessed Friday and even as we unwind this weekend, to walk the talk!
Pray with me: O Allah, thank You for the gift of life and for gifting us Children to care for. Ya Rabb! Please instruct our minds the right way and enrich our hearts to pass Your test on our Children. Crown our efforts with glorious mentions in our children and later generations. Amin!
Good morning and have a relaxing weekend!
