The specialty of the Islamic system of raising children

The specialty of the Islamic system of raising children


If a child is raised as per the principles given by Islam, then the child will surely stride forward on the path of good and success in all walks of life.  The chances of such a child ending up on the wrong path are negligible.  The fact is that Islamic principles of upbringing are not given by any human being but are given by the One Entity who brought humankind into existence.  He Himself has given these principles.  For this reason, these principles are absolutely compatible with human nature.


   Islam is a complete way of life which assures success and prosperity for humanity.  On one hand, the Islamic method of raising children brings religious benefits of this world and the next.  It also leads to various worldly benefits for all sections of the society.  History is proof enough that whenever humanity has used this method, the world has become a sanctuary of peace and harmony.


The legalists, intellectuals, philosophers, etc. formulate guidelines and methods based on their own experiences.  As the world moves on, these guidelines lose their effectiveness.  However, the Islamic guidelines of upbringing of children are such that in spite of the changing of the times, it is still a beacon of guidance for the whole of humanity and is a means of solace.
