Advice on raising children

This is from an excerpt from a famous book of Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (d. 751 AH) called Tuhfat al-Mawdood bi Ahkaam al-Mawlood. One of the most important chapters of his book is the sixteenth chapter, which is entitled Fi fusool naafi’ah fi Tarbiyat al-Atfaal tuhmad ‘awaaqibuha ‘ind al-Kabr (Useful advice on raising children which will have good consequences when the child grows up). What follows is a summary of what Ibn Qayyim says:

1. The child should be breastfed by someone other than his mother, two or three days after birth. That is better because her milk after that time will be thick and contain different ingredients, unlike the milk of one who has been breastfeeding for a while. All the Arabs pay attention to that, and they give their children to desert women to breastfeed, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was given to Banu Sa’d to be breastfed among them.

2. They should not be picked up and carried around until they are three months old or more, because they have only recently emerged from their mother’s wombs and their bodies are still weak.

3. They should be given only milk until their teeth appear, because their stomachs are weak and unable to digest food. When the baby’s teeth appear, his stomach has grown strong and is able to be nourished by food. Food should be introduced gradually.

The Muslim Woman Increases More In Worship Than The Man In Ramadan By Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee,

Questioner inquires: What is the Muslim Woman’s agenda in Ramadan so that she can worship Allah by way of it and at the same time complete the services of the people of her household?

Sheikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhaylee, may Allah preserve him, answers: We say that the Muslim Woman’s agenda is that of the (Muslim) Mans. However the Muslim Women increases in worship. That is because when the women strives in the service of her h…usband and the members of her household and she prepares food for them that which will sufice them, then she is in obedience to Allah, ‘azza wa jall, provided that she seeks the reward from Allah. Therefore, in this is a reward for her and also an increasement for her good deeds. And it is befitting for the Muslim Women when she is preparing the food that she busy’s her tongue with the rememberance of Allah. So while she is cooking she glorifies Allah, while she is cooking she is saying tahleel (Laa ilaaha illa Allah/ None has the right to be worshipped except Allah), while she is cooking she is remembering Allah and in that she will have a tremendous reward. (Like this) preparing food will never divert her from the obedience of her Lord, Glorified is He, during the day of Ramadan. So congratulations to the Muslim Women who services her husband and the members of her household and she seeks the reward from Allah, ‘azza wa jall, and by that she does not become heedless concerning the rememberance of Allah and she performs what she is capable of doing from the different acts of worship during the day of Ramadan. For indeed she has achieved a great success.

The best thing after Iman and the worst thing after Kufr [women] – Sayings of the Salaf

The best thing after Iman and the worst thing after Kufr [women]

It is reported that ‘Umar b. Al-Khattâb – Allâh be pleased with him – once addressed the people and said:

No man can have anything better after faith (îmân) than a woman of righteous character, loving and child-bearing. And no man can have anything worse after unbelief (kufr) than a sharp-tongued woman of bad character.

Al-Hâfidh Abul-Qâsim Al-Asbahânî, Al-Targhîb wa Al-Tarhîb article 1528. Also recorded in other sources with a slight variation in wording.

Shaykh Saalim ibn Sa’d at-Taweel USA visit July 2010

These are the happiest times for a Sunni, when he hears that he can have the chance to sit with one of the mashaayikh of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.

Many people in the West are referred to as “Shaykh” when they are not really deserving of that title. In the West, we don’t have any scholars, we only have speakers. And that is why when one of the mashaayikh come to the West, we should take every opportunity to go and sit with them inshaAllah.


We are pleased to announce that Shaykh Saalim ibn Sa’d at-Taweel will be returning to St. Louis again this year for the 4th of July weekend. The Shaykh will be arriving Tuesday, June 29 and will leave for Chicago Tuesday, July 6.

St. Louis, MO (From Sun, 27-Jun to Tue, 6-Jul)

Chicago, IL (From Tue, 6-Jul to Tue, 13-Jul)

Washington DC (From Tue, 13-Jul to Tue, 20-Jul)

New York, NY (From Tue, 20-Jul to Wed, 28-Jul)

Please don’t waste this opportunity of meeting one of the Mashāyikh of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamā‘ah. Hope to see you Brothers there.
