Protecting Your Wives And Children, By Sh. Saalih As-Suhaymee
“They (the true believers) always supplicate to Allaah to rectify their wives and children:
“And those who say, ‘Our Lord, bestow on us from our wives and offspring those who will be the comfort of our eyes’.“
How will they be a comfort to the eyes? If they are obedient to Allaah and if you educate and cultivate them well, such that they are steadfast in the prayer and in doing good, when they use good speech and when they are regular in reading the Quraan because you taught them to be attached to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Messenger (saw) You protected your wife and children from going with the people of desires and atheists and away form the deviated people who have doubts.
Your children will be a comfort for your eyes if you trained them upon the obedience to Allaah from their childhood and are good to them from a young age, for as you are to them, they will be to you!
Therefore you must strive to educate them and admonish them to be upon the truth. Keep them away from foolish people and those false teachers on satellite channels, likewise keep them away from the Khawaarij…
Protect your children such that they do not become lost between the extremists and those who are not serious, those who are considered to be followers of desires from those who mock Islaam and its people. Some of these individuals even write in our newspapers. Protect your children form the followers of deviated ideologies.”
