The Best Parenting Advice I Have Ever Read


The Best Parenting Advice I Have Ever Read (Click this)

I have seen with my own eyes children under the age of ten who willingly set their own alarms to get up for Tahajjud (mid-night) prayer. I have hosted a young soccer marvel in my home who begins his day before mine by reciting Quran at Fajr (dawn). I know of an Ivy League university student who insisted on turning the car around because she realized she had left home without giving her mother salaams (farewell wishes). I have been acquainted with doctors who make more money in a single month than most people make in a single year yet choose to live in small homes with no mortgages so that their salaries can be spent supporting scholars of Islam. My husband and I work with a young man who once flew with his mother from California to Jordan, then turned around and returned on the next flight home — all of this so that his single mother didn’t have to travel across the world alone. I have witnessed fourth graders who were able to sit quietly with impeccable etiquette in front of Muslim scholars while the adults around them stretched, yawned, and sighed. I have heard children silence their young friends with urgent reminders, “Don’t say that about him! It’s backbiting!”

A must-read.

Enough said.
