    You Will be Accountable O Parents and Teachers ....

    By Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Jameel Zaynoo

    “O you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from the Hellfire.” [Sooratut-Tahreem 66:6]

    Mothers, fathers, teachers, and the society as a whole, will all be accountable in front of Allaah about the tarbiyyah (education and upbringing) of this generation. If its tarbiyah is good, then there will be happiness - both in this world and the Hereafter. If it is not, then there will be misery, and it will be a rope around your necks - since there occurs in the hadeeth: “Each of you is a shepherd, and each of you will be questioned about those who you are responsible for.” [1]

    But - O teachers - rejoice in the saying of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam), who said: “By Allaah! That Allaah guides through you even a single person, is better for you than the most precious of camels.” [2] And - O parents - rejoice in the authentic hadeeth: “When a person dies, his actions ore terminated except for three; a recurring charity, or knowledge that he leaves which is benefited from, or a pious offspring who supplicates for him.” [3]

    So you must first of all reform yourselves, since good results from the good that you do, and bad results from the bad that you do. So good conduct from teachers and parents in front of the children is the best form of education and upbringing for them.” [4]

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"

    Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him say what is good or remain silent.

      How many of us think or act rather, this way?


        Jazak Allah, sister. We are obliged to save our families from hellfire, but we normally provide them everything worldly, which points them in that direction.

        May Allah guide us. Ameen.
