3 Steps in Raising Righteous Children: Surah Luqman

1. Remind your children of Allah’s oneness

“And (mention, O Muhammad), when Luqman said to his son while he was instructing him, “O my son, do not associate (anything) with Allah. Indeed, association (with him) is great injustice.” (Luqman:13)

2. To remember their bounties

“His mother carried him, (increasing her) in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents; to Me is the (final) destination.” (Luqman: 14)

3. To persevere in prayer and patience

“O my son, establish prayer, enjoin what is right, forbid what is wrong, and be patient over what befalls you. Indeed, (all) that is of the matters (requiring) determination.” (Luqman: 17)
