So How Do You Behave?

Wrote this piece for Dr. Kanwal Kaisser to be published on the website made by herself and her team about parenting kids, named Hamaray Bachay. It’s been a while since this has been on their website so I thought I’d post it here too. You can find it under the tab of “Youth Talent Corner” on their website.

 

So how do you behave?

When your child comes home…

After a long active day

With all those stories to be told!

 

He doesn’t need your money

Not even a single dime

He just wants some love

And a few minutes of your precious time

 

But if you can’t even give that

Then you must be really rude

So when you watch him turn

Into a dude with attitude

You start getting angry

And you wonder why he’s so rude?!

Attitude

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You start asking yourself questions like

Where did I go wrong?

I taught him about Allah and His Prophet

But he hangs out with girls and listens to songs!

 

And when he starts to earn

Then he starts to ignore

Comes late every night

While in your sleep you snore

 

Then when you get old

And start getting pension

You’ll have everything

But not his attention

 

And then you’ll start to see

What your child really needed

He needed your attention

While you only feeded…

 

And if this made you see your life in flashes

You better start working on those minor clashes

Instead of thinking on why the conversation never starts

Bow down to Allah, the turner of hearts

 

He sends astray whom HE wants

And guides whom HE wills

Start praying for your child right now

So with love and mercy your hearts, He fills

 

And it all comes back to

How one behaves

Because Allah is not merciful to those

Who are not merciful to His slaves!

Focusing in Salah (Hadith No. 369)

Salam,
Bismillah.

When we’re offering Salah, our attention should be focused on the conversation we’re having with Allah (SWT). (Yes, you’re supposed to know what you’re saying!)
Anything that diverts your attention from Allah, should be removed. It can be uneasy clothes, too colorful/embroidered clothes, designs on the prayer mat etc. Prophet (SAW) got rid of the clothes which diverted his attention from Salah. (Takes courage!)

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 369:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

the Prophet prayed in a Khamisa (a square garment) having marks. During the prayer, he looked at its marks. So when he finished the prayer he said, “Take this Khamisa of mine to Abu Jahm and get me his Inbijaniya (a woolen garment without marks) as it (the Khamisa) has diverted my attention from the prayer.”

What, then, do you think of those thoughts that flood your mind when you’re ‘reciting’ the Salah? What’s a good way to get rid of them?

Wassalam.
