Special Programme, at Masjid Umar Farooq, Mckenzie Park, Benoni on November 29, 2017


The Seerah is an ocean with no shore. Fourteen hundred years have passed yet the subject matter has not been exhausted, and continues to inspire! Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) emphasised, and he himself was the embodiment of compassion, love and kindness towards children. Countless incidents show the beautiful manner in which Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) encouraged and nurtured the young, with a harmonious balance between discipline and love. Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) never reprimanded Anas RA who served from the tender age of eight; and addressed him affectionately and lightheartedly as ‘My little Anas’, or ‘O you with the two ears’, when he would become sidetracked from the errands he was sent on. At the same time, Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) did not hold back when it came to disciplining and teaching young children. He taught Abdullah bin Abbas RA, who was a little boy at the time, lofty words of Iman and Yaqeen, which even adults would need to fathom. The loving and compassionate way in which Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW) disciplined and nurtured children is seen in how he taught his stepson Umar bin Abi Salamah the etiquettes of eating, and immediately stopped his beloved grandson from eating a date from Zakaah. We should have compassion and concern for our own children, and those of our family and community, and encourage, educate and admonish them in accordance with the example of our beloved Nabi-e-Kareem (SAW).
