Belong of your kids’s lives
The really first thing you’re going to need to do is ensure you’re in fact there for your kids. This indicates not falling under the materialism trap. It’s much better to work a little less and not have that costly cars and truck, if that indicates you can support your kids and provide the assistance they require.

Check out the Quran together
Likewise, bas they will not get any spiritual mentor at school, you will need to do so with them. The very best method to begin is to check out the Quran with them typically– ideally every day. It does not need to be long, however it needs to be done. Possibly after supper or prior to bed.
Permit them to ask concerns– kids will constantly be filled with interest. These concerns might both have to do with what you read as how what you read will use to what they’re going through.
Participate In a Halaqa
You do not need to do it alone. It is much better not to. As they state, it takes a town to raise a kid. Because of that, ensure that you engage with the appropriate town. Interact with your Imam about setting one up if there is no Halaqa in your neighborhood.
In this method, you’ll have an opportunity for your kids and you to engage with fellow Muslims. Even much better, this will permit your kids to have pals in these neighborhoods. These will exist to assist him and support him with the issues and concerns they do not feel they can talk about with grownups (there are constantly some) while still keeping to the mentors of Allah.

The only method to attain that is to ensure you understand what your kid is going through and what they’re experiencing and to share that with them. As long as they trust you, they will bring their issues to you. And as long as they do that, you can ensure that Allah remains in their lives.
