The people said: “Oh Messenger of Allah ﷺ, you prostrated during the prayer for so long that we thought that something had happened, or, that you were receiving revelation.” He ﷺ replied: “No such thing happened, but rather, my child was riding on my back, and I did not like to disturb him until he got what he wanted.”
[Sunan An-Nasa-i, Kitab At-Tatbiq]
The success of a civilization is reliant on the refinement of its individuals, and this refinement process begins at home, with a foundational stronghold, that is, good parenting.
The developmental years of a child are crucial, as we learn more about the child, learning and applying various approaches to nurture the child through the different stages of his or her development. Parenting is a great responsibility that holds the key to ultimate success for all of us, as individuals, and as a community.
The essence of parenting lies in building a family that is conducive and inviting for children to learn and to grow. The Quran identifies the key qualities of marriage and family, to be that of love, serenity, and tranquility, allowing for an endearing environment to be set as the basis for children to fully immerse themselves in all the joys of learning and growing. The development of a child requires effort to be put in, to create that atmosphere of ease and facilitation, so that children can confidently develop and grow.
God elevates the rank of parents even higher, as a result of their immense contributions and efforts put in to this nurturing process, giving birth to individuals who grow and assume the responsibility of being God’s servant.

“Oh my sons, go and search diligently, for Yusuf and his brother. And do not feel hopeless of the relief from Allah, for indeed, one who feels hopeless of the relief from Allah, is none but the people of disbelief.”
[Surah Yusuf, Ayat 87]
Effective parenting can be a challenge for parents of today, as we face difficulties in trying to balance all of our various roles in life. At times, we might have overlooked the importance of the active upbringing and development of our children, and unfortunately, when we neglect it as a responsibility, forgoing that pivotal role of helping someone grow, we let other variables, such as the physical and digital environments, determine and dictate how our children think and develop. This affects the worldview of the child, impacting the child’s growth and understanding of the things that happen around us.
Understanding the religion’s perspective on parenting can help us, and bring ease to our parenting experience, as we present Prophetic examples to gain inspiration on how we can interact with our children, to foster a parent-child relationship that brings the best out of us.
Learning about parenting is not just for parents of today, but rather, it also applies to parents of tomorrow who will join us in this journey of nurturing true Muslim leaders who will serve God and humanity, building the next generation of Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ Ummah.
Let’s make apparent, how you can be, for your child, the best parent.
