Fasting is obligatory in Islam, so I have instilled the habit of fasting in my children from the beginning, but my eldest son gets very irritable in Ramadan. He fights with his siblings over small things and kills them, and me and my father. Disobeys God. Tell me, what can I do for him to pay the right to fast?
It is obvious that fasting is a difficult act of worship and especially summer fasting is very difficult for children but we should tell our children that the real purpose of fasting is piety.
Taqwa means doing things that please Allah Almighty. In fact, when children are small, we try to make them fast, but its philosophy does not explain the etiquette and basic requirements that lead to patience in children. Tolerance does not arise and they consider hunger and thirst to be fasting even though our religion of Islam has clearly stated the purpose of fasting.
In Quraan Majeed.
“O you who believe!
Fearing Allaah, abiding by His limits, and refraining from fighting, quarreling, stealing, adulteration, slander, and all kinds of evil deeds. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Will be done.
At one point, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: He who gives up fighting and quarreling while fasting does not care about Allaah being hungry or thirsty. It is narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: That the goodness of every human being is increased from ten times to seven hundred times except fasting, so he is for me and I am the one who repays him because he gives up his lust and his food for me.
There are double joys for the fasting person. One happiness he will get while breaking the fast and one happiness he will get when he meets his Lord and Allah Almighty likes the smell of musk (perfume) on the mouth of the fasting person. Shield. On the day when one of you is fasting, he should not speak obscenely or make noise.
Similarly, according to the narration of Hazrat Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), there is a blessed hadith that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Whoever does not stop lying and acting on it, then Allah Almighty does not need him to give up his food and drink.
We should tell our children that Ramadan is a month of training and most of the training in this month is for Sabrushkar. If we put these things in their minds from the beginning and become a practical example of it, then surely children But it will have an effect because children eventually do what they see their parents doing.
