Amidst responsibilities and routines, fostering a sense of gratitude can breathe new life into our relationships. One beautiful practice that couples can adopt is keeping a gratitude journal for each other.

The Power of Gratitude:

A Father's Legacy: Nurturing Tomorrow's Leaders

As the eldest of seven siblings, I want to share a remarkable story of how my father's influence transcended the boundaries of mere parenthood. Every evening, after our family dinner, my father had a unique way of shaping my future by sparking discussions about religion, history, politics, and the importance of good manners. These precious moments instilled in me a deeper understanding of the world and set the stage for the person I would become. It's a story that every parent, especially dads, should hear.

Any day we wish, we can teach our children to discipline their lives according to the Quran. Any day we wish to make important changes in their lives according to Sunnah. Any day we wish, we can open the door that will open their minds to the knowledge of Deen. Any day we wish, we can start a new fun activity which teaches them to Love Allah Subhana o Tala more. Any day we wish, we can help them start the process of life change. Any day we wish, we can make our children realize the importance of inheriting the legacy of Sahabah RA.
We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year.
We can also do nothing. We can pretend rather than perform. And if the idea of having to change the routines of our children makes us uncomfortable we can remain as we are. We can choose rest over labor, entertainment over education, delusion over truth and doubt over confidence. The choices are ours to make.
