Description :

Imdad al-Ibad fi Ahkam al-Awlad, Assisting the Servants of Allah; Rulings of Raising Children is a new work by Shaykh Issarar Hussain.

Of the many roles we as humans may occupy in our lives, being a parent will perhaps be the most important. When Allah Almighty blesses us with children, He is placing an innocent soul in our care to nurture and raise so that they may become the future carriers of this religion.

Every child that is born, has only been created for one purpose, the recognition of the Lord of all worlds. Before any parent has any dream for their child, they must first realise that this is the most important duty for their children to carry out on this earth. Therefore, raising our children in the correct manner, so they fulfill the pledge that their souls made to their Lord must be our primary concern. Upon understanding the gravity of this task, we must learn how to fulfil its requirements, which is the reason for writing this book.

The book covers many topics for would-be parents and existing parents with regards to rulings of new-born and children :

   *** such as pregnancy,
   *** labour,
   *** IVF,
   *** surrogacy,
   *** adoptions,
   *** circumcision,
   *** breastfeeding,
   *** naming the child, tahnik etc.

It also has a section on the Islamic method of raising children. It is fully referenced throughout.

Extract from the Foreword :

"This work not only examines the responsibilities but also delivers clear rulings on various issues on childbirth and parenting. The author has shed light on some of the rulings regarding modern approaches and treatments in childbirth.  It is, in a nutshell a manifesto for the modern parent drawing on lessons from a rich Islamic civilisation, merging them seamlessly in to the 'here and now.' " ---Shaykh Hafiz Gul Muhammad al-Azhari.
