A Great Virtue in Ut’bah’s Advice to his children’s teacher; so help us establish a school

Ut’bah Bin Abee Sufyaan said to his children’s teacher:

‘’Indeed, I have come to you to teach my children. Firstly, rectify yourself and adhere to your religion because their eyes are fixed on you.  They will not see you beautifying or doing something, except that they will blindly follow you in (that). Teach them the best of the narrations; meaning: The best and most beneficial, and the most beneficial science.  Keep them away from flirting with women and composing love poems about them; rather teach them the Hadeeth and the Qur’aan, and (those) poetry and etiquettes of the Arabs that develop bravery in the souls, heroism, nobility and adherence to good customs. [Source: Al-Fataawaa Wad-Duroos Fil Masjid Al-Haraam: by Al-Allaamah Abdullaah Bin Muhammad Bin Humayd (rahimahullaah): pages: 938-944]
