The challenges of parenthood are
experienced by all and many times a
parent is hard put to ascertain the correct
course of action in bringing up a child in
the correct Islamic manner, or, when
required, disciplining that child. This
treatise is a moving and pertinent advice
which Imam al-Jawzi, himself a great
scholar and parent, directed to his
carefree and disobedient child. It is
important for every parent and child to
read since it lays down the principles for
providing a solid religious and spiritual
education for oneself and one's family,
thereby providing the foundation that
every Muslim needs in his journey
through this world to the next.|
The main concept running throughout the
work is on acquiring knowledge which is
of spiritual benefit, purifying the intention,
the challenges, the pitfalls and obstacles
the seeker confronts, and acting on the
basis of the acquired knowledge.
