Rights of Children

Children have the right to protect their lives and have proper names. This is made clear in the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) said: You will be called by your given names and father’s names, so have beautiful names.(Imam Ahmed). We should also take care of them, provide their needs (such as food, drink, clothes and living), give them proper education and good manners, such as modesty, respect for elders, truthfulness, honesty, obedience to parents, etc., and keeping them away from bad words or acts, such as telling lies, fraud and deceit, dishonesty, robbery, disobedience to parents, etc. The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said: It adequates a man to be a sinner that he ruins him whom he supports.(Abu Dawood & Nas’e). The Holy Prophet also said: Everyone of you is a protector and guardian of his immediate charge and is responsible for the action of those people who are committed to his charge.(Bukhari & Muslim). Children should be treated equally and no discrimination, because such discrimination would cause hatred. Once a man came to Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) and told him to make him a witness to a gift he intended to make to one of his children without the others. The Prophet (peace be upon him) asked him: “Have you made similar gifts to each of your children? He said: No, whereupon the Prophet said: Then make someone else a witness to do this, for I do not want to be a witness to unfairness. Fear Allah and be fair to your children by treating them equally.
