How do we go about nurturing children in a prophetic way? Being effective parents is a challenge for many of us. The Prophet ﷺ is often called The Teacher. In fact, his entire life is a lesson.
In this seminar video recording given at SeekersHub Toronto, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, Shaykh Zahir Bacchus and Ustadha Umm Umar explore how the Prophet ﷺ taught, nurtured and guided children through compassion, love and modelling right action. They explore how, as parents and educators, we can take this Prophetic advice and use it to nurture children to have good character and also discuss how to overcome common parenting hurdles, and key methods in raising children to embody piety and devotion.
