The Holy Messenger of Islam peace be upon him said, ‘Love children and have mercy on them.’ ‘Part of the prosperity of a man is that he has a righteous child.’[ii] ‘Whoever has a child should act childishly to him.’[iii] A sensible and well-balanced family system is the very foundation of a happy life. Indeed, it is the root of an advancing civilization. Religion comes to take human beings nearer to Allah. Therefore, it must create an atmosphere conducive to that ideal; otherwise, it cannot achieve its goal. The Holy Prophet said to `Ali (a.s.): “O' `Alli, there are as many rights of children incumbent upon parents as there are rights of parents incumbent upon children.” ‘A child is a master for seven years, a servant for seven years, and a minister for seven years. If you want, engage his assistance until [the age of] twenty-one, or else strike him on his shoulder (let him go) for you have completed your excuse to Allah in him.’[iv] Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘There are three things obligatory upon a parent for his child: to have him at his mother’s disposal, to give him a good name, and to go to lengths in disciplining him.’[v] Rights and duties are inter-related. The right of `A' is the duty of `B'. Although natural parental love was a sufficient surety for the upkeep, welfare and upbringing of the child, Islam prepared some wonderful guidelines for the parents. Thus, Respect your parents so that your children respect you. Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘Be good to your parents and your children will be good to you.’[vi] Do not make any difference between your sons and daughters. The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘Maintain justice among your children in gifts, just like you would like them to be just with you in goodness and affection.’[vii] Read more about this subject: Children and youths https://www.al-islam.org/islamic...
