Guidelines for Raising Children is part of Darussalam’s Research Centres parenting book collection. A great book for parents that are looking for an Islamic guideline on the right way to raise their children. Islam places a great amount of importance on the way children are brough up. Teaching children by words is not enough. If the parents' actions do not corroborate their teachings then it becomes a hypocritical act and drives children to confusion. This book advises against such acts and guides parents on the most effective way of upbringing children and the art of parenting in order to make them a good member of the community.
Motherhood is one of the most natural things in the world yet most of us are still unsure regarding the responsibilities as a mother. Islam is a complete religion that touches upon every aspect of life. It's the only religion that has left for its believers a complete guidance on life. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:
قد تركتكم على البيضاءِ ليلُها كنهارِها
“I am leaving you upon a (path of) brightness whose night is like its day.”(ابن ماجه: 43)
Islam has never left its followers in any ambiguity about how mothers should raise their children. The guidance in regards to a mother’s duty to her child is to raise the babies as the culture and rules of society but not according to the method of the Jewish and the Christians in order to avoid their resemblance. The only thing which mothers have to follow while raising their child in the light of Islam is to do what is the best for them according to the cultures and rules of society but with moderation.
