The Importance of Educating Children

Madrasa at Hendon Mosque.Children are precious gifts from Allah (swt) and parents have been given the responsibility to make sure that they are educated according to Islam.

If the parents of a child bring him up in righteousness, he will live happily in this world and the next and the parents will be rewarded by Allah for their good deed. But, if the parents neglect the child’s upbringing and education, he will lead a life of unhappiness in both worlds and the parents will be punished by Allah (swt) for their neglect.

The Benefits of Madrasa

By attending Madrasa on a regular basis, children are taught how to read the Holy Qur’an at an early age so that they develop love for it when they are older.

Such children also receive the basic guidance to be a good Muslim. This includes the basics of cleanliness, good morals, good manners and basic knowledge relating to beliefs.

Parental Responsibilities

However, in addition to sending children to madrasa, the most important element in a child’s education are the examples set by those around him, because a child does what he/she sees.

As such, parents must remember that if they themselves ignore the teachings imparted at madrasa (e.g. the extreme importance of salah), children that attend madrasa become confused and eventually discard such teachings.
