How to educate children not to be naughty according to Islam
How to educate children not to be naughty according to Islam- Including the main cause that triggers moral deviation in children, even in all humans in general, is the temptation of Satan who has sworn an oath before Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala to lead people astray from His straight path. Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala says,
قَالَ فَبِمَآ أَغْوَيْتَنِى لَأَقْعُدَنَّ لَهُمْ صِرَٰطَكَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ ١٦ ثُمَّ لَـَٔاتِيَنَّهُم مِّنۢ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ وَعَنْ أَيْمَـٰنِهِمْ وَعَن شَمَآئِلِهِمْ ۖ وَلَا تَجِدُ أَكْثَرَهُمْ شَـٰكِرِينَ ١٧
16 He said, “For leaving me to stray I will lie in ambush for them on Your Straight Path. 17. I will approach them from their front, their back, their right, their left, and then You will find most of them ungrateful.” (QS. Al-A’raf: 16-17).
According to Islam, raising children can be daunting but gratifying. As parents, we want our children to grow up as good Muslims who respect their elders and follow the teachings of Islam. To help ensure your child grows into an obedient Muslim adult, here are some tips on how to raise them according to Islamic values:
1) Set clear boundaries for your child – Establishing rules and expectations from an early age will give your child structure and teach them the importance of following instructions. Be sure these rules reflect Islamic values such as honesty, kindness, respectfulness, etc.
2) Spend quality time with them – Spending quality time with your kids will allow you to bond over shared experiences which helps build trust in parent-child relationships. This also gives you a chance to talk about important topics like religion or moral stories from within the Quran, which can help shape your understanding of what it means to be a Muslim in today's world.
3) Praise & Reward Good Behavior - Positive reinforcement goes a long way when raising kids. Make sure you praise any behavior that reflects excellent character or follows religious guidelines, such as praying regularly or helping out around home without being asked first! Rewarding this behavior will encourage more positive attitudes toward obedience later in life.
4) Discipline Appropriately– When disciplining children, it's essential to enforce consequences and explain why they were wrong. Hence, they understand why certain behaviors should not be repeated again. Also, try using other forms of discipline, like taking away privileges instead of harsh physical punishments whenever possible, since this violates Islamic principles.
Following these tips, you'll have no problem raising obedient, well-mannered Muslim adults!
