Pearl of Wisdom

with respect to Allah's verse in the Qur?an: Those to whom We have given the Book follow it as it ought to be followed. said, 'They recite its verses and understand its meanings and act according to its laws. They hope for its reward, fear its Punishment, take examples from its stories, take lesson from its parables, perform its orders, stay away from what it has prohibited. By Allah, it is not just memorizing its verses, citing its words, reciting its chapters, and learning its parts. They have memorized its words and lost its limits. That which is important is contemplating into its verses, Allah Almighty says: [It is ] a blessed Book that We have sent down to you, so that they may contemplate its signs.?

Question : #645 Category: Family Issues
Subject: feeding a baby
Question: My baby is 5 months old. What are the advices according to islam for feeding n taking care of him? when and how should i start his formal education? Thanks
Answer: Islam has divided the upbringing of a child into three stages from birth to age 21.

The division is based on the following hadith of the Prophet (s.a.w.): "The child is the master for seven years; and a slave for seven years and a vizier for seven years; so if he grows into a good character within 21 years, well and good; otherwise leave him alone because you have discharged your responsibility before Allah."

The same hadith has been explained by Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (a.s.): "Let your child play upto seven years; and keep him with you (for education and training) for another seven years; then if he succeeds (well and good); otherwise, there is no good in him."
