My little girls are very fond of reading, listening to stories and watch documentaries. Books are the things which I believe are very beneficial and true friend of a person. They remain to enlighten you when you anywhere everywhere.
Last year while I was preparing for my family Umrah in December holidays, my littlest one started asking; what is Umrah Mom? Why we have to go Saudi Arabia for this? How long it would take etc? I was too busy for the Umrah education of my kids.
I switched on a YouTube channel for kids Umrah basics. After getting free from the Umrah preparation, I noticed that YouTube is really unsafe for the innocent selves of my little girlies.
Children’s Religious Education, Our Mandatory Parental Duty
How can I be so ignorant of my inevitable parental duty? I asked myself. How can I prepare for Umrah without preparing my kids for it.? How would they perform an Islamic ritual without knowing Islam itself?
We are letting our kids trapped in the rat race of this fleeting world. We want them to get good grades, top scores, so want them to become doctors or engineers.
What about the life after this life? Are we not responsible to teach them about this ultimate everlasting world? Yes we are.
We must gear ourselves to teach at the very moment when your kids start asking you the questions like “What is Islam? What is Umrah? Why we perform prayers?,etc.
So instead of ignoring them, we must start their Islamic enlightening through all the best kid friendly ways.
Books- The Safest Source of Religious Education
The continuous YouTube switching or Internet scrolling is not possible all or every time. In this situation, a book becomes your best friend. It is ever-present to enlighten you whenever you want. You can read it again and again to avoid difficulties or confusions.
Books save the parents from the continuous monitoring of internet content with their kids. They can easily leave their kids with kid friendly colorful books.
Instead of relying on unsafe Internet content, I bought some good Islamic books for my girl kids.
Therefore I strongly suggest to all the busy moms to bring a good collection of Islamic books for your little ones. Never do neglect your kids’ religious education. You would be questioned by your Almighty Creator.
There are loads of Islamic books readily available in the market. Here are some of my favorites. So you may pick any of them
