This book outlines the basic Islamic concepts in child education. The author has tried to coordiante the main ideas, as well as the basics precepts for raising Muslim children in all the different spheres of life. First of all, the importance of correct belief and faith cannot be inculcated in young children except through the teaching and example of their parents; and obviously, the role of the mature and religious mother is foremost. This state of harmony can only be achieved when matrimonial relations are relatively stable. Care is to be taken in providing young children with all the necessary elements in the fields of ethical, physical and psychological education.

Allaah mentions the command to treat parents well alongside the command to worship Him as He says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents”
Obedience to parents is obligatory on the child with regard to that which will benefit them and will not harm the child. With regard to that which does not bring them any benefits or which will cause harm to the child, he does not have to obey them in that case.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Ikhtiyaaraat (p. 114): A person is obliged to obey his parents with regard to that which is not sinful, even if they are immoral evildoers.. This has to do with that which is beneficial for them and not harmful to him.
Putting things right in the home is a great trust and huge responsibility which every Muslim man and woman should undertake as Allaah commands; they should run the affairs of their homes in accordance with the rules set out by Allaah. One of the ways of achieving this is by ridding the home of evil things. The following aims to highlight some evil things that actually happen in some homes and that have become tools of destruction for the nests in which the future generations of the Muslim ummah are being raised.
Taken from introduction: Worship and doctrine are two inseperable things because doctrine represents the theoretical aspect of Islam whereas worship represents its practical aspect. So, worship is the soul of doctrine that gives it life and the mirror that reflects its image. When a child turns his little face to his lord and responds to His Commands he is, by this, only fulfilling and satisfying a natural instinct inside him. Dr. Sa’id al-Buti referred to this saying, “But in order to make the doctrine strongly implanted in the soul, it must be irragated with the water of worship. Worship in its various images and shapes will make the doctrine grow and flourish in the heart and will make it stand firm in front of the hardships of life”.
