" It is our obligation and duty as parents to teach our children so that they grow up to be believing, practicing Muslims.
Sending the child to an Islamic weekend school or to a full-time Islamic school is an important but minor part of their Islamic education.
The major 'institution of learning' for each child is his family, and the major 'professors' of this institution are the parents.
ROLE MODELING The most effective way to teach anything to anybody is to be a role model.
How do we use positive reinforcement to teach our children? Unfortunately many parents ignore their child's good actions and only comment on the bad actions. INTEGRATING ISLAM INTO LIFE One of the most important aspects of raising your children to be Muslims is to introduce the idea that Allah is also happy with their good actions.
It is not necessary to make the child fearful of Allah or fearful of going to hell.
When there are two ways that a child can respond to a situation, the parent can mentions nicely which way will be pleasing to Allah.
The constant reference to Allah, the constant encouragement to do what is right, and the constant praise and positive reinforcement for doing the right actions, will focus your child on the right path.
These are important, but don't forget that Islam is a total way of life, and every aspect has an Islamic element that you need to talk about and demonstrate for your child.
