  • children and the possibility of them being non believers

    slms brothers and sisters

    i have a question related to the upbringing of children, if a brothers children turn out to be non believers or low in deen does that affect the brother in any way? does it depend on how hard the brother tried to instil faith in ones child ? say if the children were not sent to madrassah will that negatively affect the brothers standings in Allah (SWT) eyes ?

    jazakallah

    Parents should raise their children Islamicly and do their part, however in the end, these matters are in the hands of Allah.

    Keep in mind bro, Nuh alaihissalam, his son did not enter Islam and this is mentioned in the Qur'aan. If it can happen to a prophet, it can happen to anyone.

    But again, most important thing, we must do our part.

    Wa jazak.

        You need to teach them to love and respect Allah (swt), His Prophet :saw:, and the tenets of this religion. You should make the Prophet :saw: be their role model, and not be harsh with them with regards to the religion, because they need to view it with comfort and ease, not associate it with harshness that they don't see with, for example, Christians.

        You do not need to put them in a madrassah for that, you can teach them yourself, or have mom teach them. You can hire a tutor.

        But yes, if you neglect your children and they go astray.... it can and most likely will be used against you on the day of judgment. Make certain your daughters wear proper hijab as well, that is something you are responsible for.

          Unfortunately, it does not necessarily mean that if the father/mother are very religious that the children will also turn out that way. Yes, the probability will be increased but in no way is this guaranteed!

          As parents you should endevour to do your best but the rest is in the hands of Allah:)

            This mostly depends on place where you live. If you live in US for instance there is a greater chance for your children to go astray trough school, "friends" and inluence of non believers. On other hand in S. Arabia there is greater chance for your children to go on a straight path. Your job is to educate them, and teach them about islam and islamic way of life, and protect them from bad friends and influences

              If you do not give your children an islaamic upbringing, then yes, you will be taken to task.
