Kids now a days have no respect for others. They do what they want they no there will be no punishment. Parents need to wake up and be responsible for there childre's actions. Don't wait for the school to do all of your work parents its time to wake up.

My son was bashed badly by two other students last Tuesday, its now Sunday and I still have not even been contacted by the principal, I have had my son home all week, the same bully has been picking on him for last few years and yet I can't get anything done about it, I've found out he's also bullied other children and other parents have taken their children out of the school because the school won't do enough to stop this problem

Islam is a religion revealed by God for all people, in all places, at all times. As such, Islam is accessible to everybody and is particularly mindful of the importance of respect, rights, and responsibilities. The words of Qur'an and the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad contain the rights and responsibilities granted by God to humankind. They are not subject to the whims and desires of men or women therefore they do not change. These rights extend to children. Children’s rights are not guaranteed by the actions of their parents, their communities, or even their governments. God Himself guarantees children’s rights.

Islam establishes a legal framework, and embodies a code of ethics, designed to protect the rights of an individual including his or her right to live in a secure society. For children security is of the upmost importance. In Islam the rights of a child begin even before birth, in fact they begin before conception.

The Qur'an and the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad make it clear that two people should not enter into a marriage lightly. A great deal of thought and preparation is necessary before two people commit to each other and to the family that may result from their union. Prophet Muhammad was heard to say, “A woman may be married for four reasons: her wealth, her lineage, her beauty, and her religious commitment. Marry the one who is religiously committed”.

If a man and a woman have both dedicated their lives to worshipping and pleasing their Creator then the rights of any children they may have are automatically guaranteed. Worshipping God means obeying His commandments and His commandments include securing the rights of the child. By marrying rather than having an illicit relationship the couple have already begun to secure the rights of their future children. A child has the right to know and understand his or her lineage.

Once a child is conceived, it has the right to life. Qur'an makes it very clear that all life is sacred. However, some scholars are of the view that it is permissible to abort a foetus before it is 40 days old. Most believe that it is not allowable unless there is a very good reason such as pregnancy endangering the life of the mother. It is never permissible to terminate a pregnancy because one fears being unable to financially support a child or another child. It is God, who is the Provider and Sustainer of all life.

“...kill not your children because of poverty - We provide sustenance for you and for them”. (Qur'an 6:151)

When making a decision to terminate a pregnancy it is important to remember that having a child is a blessing from God and all such blessings should be accepted with joy and gratitude. There are many people in the world today who are not able to have children, therefore when God see fit to bless a family with a child it should be a cause for celebration and happiness. However, children are not toys or possessions. With them comes great responsibility.

The Qur'an and the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad speak clearly about the responsibility that comes with raising a child. It is an obligation upon the believers to raise and care for children by bringing them up as moral, righteous human beings. Secure in the knowledge that they are valued members of the human race, and their particular families. Neglecting this duty could potentially lead a person away from the path of righteousness and away from God.

“O you who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from God, but do that which they are commanded” (Qur'an 66:6).

Prophet Muhammad said, “Each of you is a shepherd and each of you is responsible for his flock. The ruler is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock. A man is the shepherd of his family and is responsible for his flock. A woman is the shepherd of her husband’s household and is responsible for her flock”.

Caring for and raising children in the proper manner is a duty on parents and it is not always easy. In fact, God reminds us in the Qur'an that children may indeed even be a great trial for their parents. The triumphs and tribulations of life are a test and children are no exception. They can bring great joy but sometimes they also bring great sadness. God in His infinite wisdom never leaves a human being alone and unable to face all of life’s trials.

“Your wealth and your children are only a trial, whereas God, with Him is a great reward (Paradise).” (Qur'an 64:15).

Following the teaching of Islam enables a believer to face all life events. The trials the tribulations and the triumphs. The correct Islamic advice for raising and rearing children covers all aspects of life. Just like Islam itself, it is holistic advice. Physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing are all of equal importance. It is interesting to note that from its inception the religion of Islam included a concept of childhood. The Islamic view of childhood states that it is that it is a unique period in a individuals life posing its own special problems and concerns.

This is in sharp contrast to western/European ideology where concept of childhood was not discovered until the 16th century. It is not that the west did not have children or young people but rather they considered them to be small adults with the same needs and wants as adults.

Throughout Islamic history and in Islamic literature the rights and responsibilities pertaining to children are clear cut. Parents, families, and communities have certain responsibilities towards children. Many of them are obligatory, and on the Day of Judgement, God will question adults about the treatment of their children.

Noted Islamic scholars described children as a trust given to parents by God. He also said that children are to be well fed, well-groomed, properly dressed for seasons and appearance, and well-taken care in terms of housing and utilities. Children are entitled to education, religious learning, and spiritual guidance. Their hearts must be filled with faith and their minds entertained with proper guidance, knowledge, and wisdom.
