Teaching children about Islam is the key to understanding the world, its history and the way things are today. Teaching your child Islam is not a choice but your duty. You as a parent should always have it in your mind that you should teach your children how to read, write, recite and memorize the Holy Quran either wholly or partially.
Islam teaches us different ways to attain success both on earth and the afterlife. One best way is to seek Islamic knowledge based on the Quran and the Sunnah. For us to know more about our religion, we need to spend our time and money to learn the authentic knowledge of Islam not only for our own success but also to be able to share it with others, especially our children.
Benefits of teaching your child about Islam
The most important gift we can bequeath to our children is the knowledge of Islam. When we teach Islam to our children, we raise them to be very good and responsible Muslims who will always treat everybody with kindness, respect and obedience wherever they go.
Islam is the only religion that clearly raises the status of the parents to a high degree of honor.
Apart from the importance of Islamic education in making your children responsible people, it goes as far as making them know the difference between what is good and bad or right and wrong. This will let them know all of the things that are prohibited in Islam like lying, adultery, theft, murder and so many other vices as well as the consequences for indulging in the forbidden acts.
