  • I was doing some research for a radio show this week and I thought it would  be nice to share some of the hadith I found, inshallah i will be explaining some of these hadith and ayah to my kids  in the weekly family circle. I want them to understand that it is our responsibility to teach them and guide them as parents and we will be accountable if we don’t.

    Hadith

    Narrated by Abu Hurairah & collected in Saheeh al-Bukhari (english trans.) vol.1, p.356, no.629 & Saheeh Muslim (english trans.) vol.2, p.493, no.2248

    There are seven whom Allaah will shade in His Shade on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade:

    1.a just ruler;

    2.a youth who grew up in the worship of Allaah,

    3.the Mighty and Majestic; a man whose heart is attached to the mosques;

    4.two men who love each other for Allaah’s sake, meeting for that and parting upon that;

    5.a man who is called by a woman of beauty and position to commit a haram action, but be says: ‘I fear Allaah’,

    6.a man who gives in charity and hides it, such that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives in charity;

    7.and a man who remembered Allaah in private and so his eyes shed tears.’

    Ayah

    “O you who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allaah, but do that which they are commanded”

    [al-Tahreem 66:6]

    Ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock. The ruler is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock; the man is the shepherd of his family members and is responsible for them; the woman is the shepherd of her husband’s house and children and is responsible for them; the slave is the shepherd of his master’s wealth and is responsible for it. Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock.”

    Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 853; Muslim, 1829.

    It was narrated that Ma’qal ibn Yassaar said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no person whom Allaah appoints in charge of some flock and he is not sincere towards them, but he will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

    Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 6731; Muslim, 142.

    I have recently begun having a weekly circle with my kids. As the kids are getting older I  find that the week goes by so fast and we don’t get to talk about islam in any real depth because everyone is either busy with housework, homework or quran classes. So both me and my husband decided that we HAVE to set a time and day and discuss different areas of islam every week, come rain or shine. We talked about the following  hadith

    Ibn Umar reported, The Messenger of Allah (saws) said:

    ‘A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim; he does him no injustice, nor does he leave him alone (to be the victim of another’s injustice); and whoever does the needful for his brother, Allah does the needful for him, and whoever removes the distress of a Muslim, Allah removes from him a distress out of the distresses of the day of resurrection; and whoever covers (the fault of) a Muslim, Allah will cover his sins on the day of resurrection.”

    Alhumdulilah it was very productive,the kids were very happy to discuss examples and even did some role play. Inshallah why not hold a weekly circle with your kids you could invite their friends or cousins. Choose a book of hadith and go through areas that you feel your kids need to know about. Inshallah if we do this regularly we can help them build strong islamic characters.
