Ramadan 14: T-I-M-E

“Kids spell love T-I-M-E.” – John Crudele

We decided to dedicate today’s thought to the parents of yesterday, the parents of today and the parents of tomorrow.

Children are a blessing from god and yes, they are needy, over-indulging and stressful … most of the time … but they are our children who we all hope will be in our lives when we get older.

These children are the adults of tomorrow and if we looked at them in a way that they are complete human beings whose lives start from day 1 and not from year 7 or later, we might love them for their personalities before loving them as simply our children. Remember, we are not responsible for their fate, we are responsible for our actions when they are with us.

After much research, we found that the number one regret that parents have when it came to their kids is wishing they spent more time with them, not saying no to building the small puzzle with them or not listening to something that they had to say. 

We ask allah to grant us and you children who grow up to be humble, honest, fair and strong leaders not just for our communities but for the world.
