The Cultivation and Upbringing of Your Children is From the Greatest of Responsibilities – Al Uthaymeen

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) was asked a question regarding the fathers (or parents) who are preoccupied and busy with their work, that they are not able to ask their children about their daily affairs; their academic studies; who their friends are etc, the Shaykh (rahimahullah) replied,

We say regarding those who are too busy (to enquire after or look after their children). From the greatest of your actions and deeds are your sons and daughters, their responsibility upon you is greater than your trade or business. We ask, what do you want and desire by way of your work and business? Surely, you only desire by way of it, the ability to spend upon yourself and your family; this is nourishment for the body. More important than this is nourishing the heart, nourishing the soul, cultivating eemaan and righteous actions in the souls of the sons and daughters. The fathers shoulkd then know that the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alaihi wa salam) said,

“When a person dies, his actions are cut off, except for three, ongoing charity, knowledge which is benefited by or a righteous child who supplicates for him.”

Therefore, a righteous child benefits his father in life and death, hence it is more befitting and preponderant that he is cared for more than wealth, because if a person is rich it is possible for him to assign employees to carry out his business and if he is not, then indeed Allah The Most High said,

And whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). (2) And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. (At-Talaaq: 2-3)


Paraphrased from a Fatwa of Shaykh al-Uthaymeen

Fasting People Take Advantage and Supplicate to Allāh – Shaykh Uthaymīn

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ

And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad sallallāhu alaihi wa salam) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright. (Al-Baqarah: 186)

Benefits Extracted from this Verse for the Fasting Person:

Supplicating to Allāh whilst fasting is one of the times where supplications are most likely to be answered. This is because Allāh mentioned this verse within the verses of fasting. Especially since He spoke about it at the end of His speech regarding the verses of fasting.

Some of the scholars said, There is another benefit extracted from this verse: it is befitting to supplicate at the end of the fasting day, (i.e. before Maghrib, at point of opening fast).

Shaykh Uthaymīn (rahimahullāh) said,

This is one of the best times to supplicate, as the fasting person is weak and the weaker a person is, the more softer and open his heart is.  This person is more likely to turn repentantly to Allāh and to lower and submit himself to Allāh.

Fasting Makes Performing Good Deeds Easier – Shaykh Sālih al-Fawzān

Benefits of Fasting:

Fasting makes it easier to perform acts of worship, this is evident from seeing fasting people compete and rush to perform good deeds. When not fasting, maybe they would have been lazy or found the worship difficult for them.

(2) Benefits and Pearls from Rawdatul ‘Uqalā – Consequences of Acting, or not Acting on Knowledge

It is reported that Mālik ibn Dīnār (rahimahullāh) said,

If a man seeks knowledge to act upon it, his knowledge will make him happy. And if he seeks knowledge, for other than acting upon it, his knowledge increases him in haughtiness.
