One of the duties parents owes their children is to guide them aright by educating them. They are obligated to correct their children’s errors and most importantly guide them to live a life that is pleasing to Allaah (Azawajal) by teaching them the means of achieving that.
To assist the parents in discharging these responsibilities, Allaah (A) gave clear guidance in the Qur’an. He gave us the example of a dutiful father-Luqman and the advice he gave to his son: “And (remember) when Luqman said to his son when he was advising him: ‘0 my son! Join not in worship others with Allaah. Verily! Joining others in worship with Allaah is a great Zulm (injustice) indeed.” (Luqmaan [311: 13)
Our success as parents is determined largely by how well we are able to discharge those responsibilities Allaah O has placed on us regarding our children. This book explains different aspects of the advice of Luqmaan to his son and its significance for a successful life.
