Quick post to benefit update/edit later inshAllah 🙂
This is a reminder to myself as well and the reminder benefits the believer. al hamdulilah.
A child is like radar1 , :
he picks everything he hears and sees in front of him. If his mother is honest, chaste, truthful and brave, the child will be raised in a healthy and respectable environment. However, if the mother goes astray and has immoral and corrupt principles, the child will inherit from her those evil qualities. Even if a child is born on al-Fitrah (Islam), his parents should guide him on the straight Islamic path and teach him the true Faith; otherwise he will be led in the wrong direction if they neglect his education. The Prophet was right when he said: “No child is born except on AI-Fitrah (Islam) and then his parents make him Jewish, Christian or Magian.”2

2.Sahih al-Bukhari on the authority of Abu Hurairah.
“You teach best what you most need to learn.”~ Richard David Bach

And both these sayings are in the athaar of this great deen, al Islaam. I will find the quotes by scholars inshAllah. Please feel free to provide daleel and comments, they and it are always welcome whether constructive criticism, correction or general. i don’t believe in censorship for myself or my blog just because you are not stroking my ego! lol
And to Allah alone belongs praise and He is sufficient for me.
