Pearl of Wisdom

when burying Fatima (AS) ?O Prophet of Allah, peace be upon you from me and from your daughter, who is joining you and who has hastened to meet you. O Prophet of Allah, my patience with [the demise of] your chosen one [your daughter] has been exhausted, and my power of endurance has weakened, except that I have ground for consolation in having endured the great hardship and heart-rending event of your separation. I laid you down in your grave when your last breath had passed [when your head was] between my neck and chest. .Indeed we belong to Allah, and to Him do we intend return. Now, the trust has been returned and what had been given has been taken back. As to my grief, it knows no bounds, and as to my nights, they will remain sleepless till Allah chooses for me the house in which you are now residing. Certainly, your daughter would apprise you of the gathering of your community in oppressing her. You ask her in detail and get all the news about the situation. This happened when a long time had not even elapsed [since your demise] and your remembrance had not yet ceased. My salutation be on you both, the salutation of one grief-stricken, not a disgusted or hateful person; for if I go away it is not because I am weary [of you], and ifi stay it is not due to lack of belief in what Allah has promised the endurers.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 202

Parenting in Islam

It has been rightly pointed out that the western libraries are chock full of works on child rearing and upbringing, but we find hardly any comprehensive reference on the subject with particular emphasis on the Islamic norms and guidelines for upbringing of children.

The Western works are more materialistic which emphasize only on the material and moral aspects of child rearing.
It is Islam that covers all the aspects including the religious and spiritual guidelines for bringing up the children as good Muslims and citizens. Here it is extensively quoted from the Holy Book and the Traditions of the Holy Prophet and his Infallible Descendants in regards to Parenting.
