How to give da`wah to youngsters?
Q. How can I invite my younger brothers who are ten years old to Iltizam (practicing Islam)? What is the proper way to follow in doing this?
A. We recommend that you teach them the Qur’an, the Sunnah and Islamic morals such as righteousness, maintaining ties of kinship, honesty and so on. You should also teach them to observe congregational Salah (Prayer), in addition to the Islamic manners in eating, drinking, talking and others. If they grow up while observing these great manners, they will be guided by the will of Allah, and they will be a great source of benefit to themselves and their Ummah (nation). You will be greatly rewarded as well.
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
