Pearl of Wisdom

to a man from Thaqif, ?O brother from Thaqif, what is gallantry in your opinion?' He said, ?O Messenger of Allah, it is fairness and peacemaking.' So he (SAWA) said, 'That is how it is in us.'

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."
