How to make your children pray on their own without quarrel or a reminder - Here's a narrative.
My Daughter was 12 years old and prayer was like heavy burden on her, So I told her to pray one day and I monitored her. She took the carpet and threw it on the ground. I asked her if she prayed - she said yes - Believe me, without feeling I slapped her face - I know I made a mistake. The situation has troubled me and I cried and I repent to God to forgive me.. The slap, the talk, the reminders did not make a difference to my child.
One day A friend told me a story. She went to one of her friends for a visit. Her friend was not very religious, but when the Adhan prayer was called, her children rushed for prayers without reminders or quarrel. I said to her how does your children pray on themselves without quarrel or a reminder? !!! - She said, before I got married I used to pray this Dua and stil pray it today.
After she told me the Dua – I began to recite it in every Sujud in my prayers and anytime I could. Since I began to recite the Dua my daughter is now the first to prayer without reminders or quarrels. She got up in Fajr prayersb without any alarms. And all her brothers are now eager in praying without any difficulties.
I know You are now eager to know this Supplication Dua..
The Supplication is in the Surah Ibrahim , ayah # 40 سُوۡرَةُ إبراهیم
And the Supplication is... ( رَبِّ ٱجۡعَلۡنِى مُقِيمَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِىۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلۡ دُعَآءِ (٤٠
"Rabbi-Ajal'ni muqeema salaati, wa min Dhurriyyati, rabbana wataqabbal duaa"
[14:40] O my Lord! make me one who establishes regular Prayer, and also (raise such) among my offspring O our Lord! and accept Thou my Prayer.
Start today do not wait until you get married and until you have kids-"prevention is better than cure. ~ @
//Adepoju Kunle The marriage of the lamb is what mohammed get twisted and take it to be the coming of Jesus will be to marry and have children...Hmmmn...Islam !!! Lord the saints are crying on top of voices Let there be revival,this people people are yours,they are thy handiwork,come o Lord and deliver them.Let the shackles of religion(islam,christianity,buddhism,etc)binding them be broken.In Jesus christ name.
Jesus Is Lord.
Admin please dont delete it like the previous one//
Don't have shame ? in 1 Line you praise your lord and in another you lie that i delete previous one.
Why he will twist when bible was already corrupted by your leaders !
Marrying someone and having kids is NOT an ABUSE !
If his mission was to die for sin or bring salvation..why he was eating..sleeping. crying ? If he can do all this then i can;t see anything wrong in marraige.
After all...he was 100% human.anyways..
So,According to your belief Jesus Christ can;t be followed when it comes to marriage,having family.
there are many Lord in Bible....Which Lord he is ?
Concept of rebirth in Hinduism – Reincarnation or Transmigration of the Souls
Most of the Hindus believe in the cycle of birth, death and rebirth, which is called ‘Samsara’.
‘Samsara’ or the doctrine of rebirth is also known as the theory of reincarnation or of transmigration of the soul. This doctrine is considered to be a basic tenet of Hinduism. According to doctrine of rebirth, differences between individuals, even at the time of their birth are due to their past karma i.e. actions done in the past birth. For example if one child is born healthy while another is handicapped or blind, the differences are attributed to their deeds in their previous lives. Those who believe in this theory reason that since all actions may not bear fruit in this life, there has to be another life for facing or reaping the consequences of one’s actions.
It is mentioned in the Bhagvad Gita
“As a person puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless.”
(Bhagvad Gita 2:22)
The Doctrine of Re-birth is also described in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad:
“As a Caterpillar which has wriggled to the top of a blade of grass draws itself over to a new blade, so does the soul, after it has put aside its body draws itself over to a new existence.
(Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4:4:3)
2. Karma – The law of Cause and Effect:
Karma means act, deed, action or activity and refers not only to action undertaken by the body but also to those undertaken by the mind. Karma is actually action and reaction or the law of cause and effect. It is explained by the saying, “As we sow, so shall we reap”. A farmer cannot sow wheat and expect rice to grow. Similarly, every good thought, word or deed begets a similar reaction which affects our next life and every unkind thought, harsh word and evil deed comes back to harm us in this life or in the next life.
3. Dharma – Righteous Duties:
Dharma means what is right or righteous duties. This includes what is right for the individual, family, the class or caste and also for the universe itself. In order to achieve good karma, life should be lived according to Dharma, otherwise it will result in bad karma. Dharma affects both, the present life and the future as well.
4. Moksha – Liberation from the Cycle of Rebirth:
Moksha means liberation from the cycle of rebirth or of ‘Samsara’. The ultimate aim of every Hindu is that one day the cycle of rebirth will be over and he will not have to be reborn again. This can only happen if there is no karma to cause an individual to be reborn i.e. it looses its good and bad karma.
5. Rebirth is not mentioned in the Vedas:
The important point worth noting is that the doctrine of rebirth is not postulated, propounded nor even mentioned anywhere in what are considered to be the most authentic Hindu scriptures i.e. the Vedas. The Vedas make no mention of the entire concept of transmigration of souls.
6. Punarjanam does not mean cycle of rebirth but means Life after Death:
The Common word used for the doctrine of rebirth is ‘Punarjanam’. In Sanskrit ‘Punar’ or ‘Puna’, means, ’next time' or ‘again’ and ‘Janam’ means ‘life’. Therefore ‘Punarjanam’ means ‘next life’ or ‘the life hereafter’. It does not mean coming to life on earth again and again as a living creature.
If one reads many of the references to Punarjanam in Hindu Scriptures besides the Vedas, keeping the life in the hereafter in mind, one gets the concept of the next life but not of rebirths or of life again and again. This is true for several quotations of the Bhagvad Gita and Upanishad which speak of Punarjanam.
This concept of repeated births or of cycle of rebirth was developed after the Vedic period. This doctrine was included by humans in subsequent Hindu scriptures including the Upanishad, Bhagvad Gita and the Puranas in a conscious attempt to rationalize and explain the differences between different individuals at birth and the different circumstances in which people find themselves in, with the concept that Almighty God is not unjust. So to say that since God is not unjust the inequalities and differences between people are due to their deeds in their past lives.
Islam has a rational answer to this which we shall discuss later InshaAllah.
7. Life after Death in the Vedas:
There is reference to life after death in the Vedas. It is mentioned in:
Rigved Book no. 10, Hymn no. 16 verse no. 4
“The unborn portion, burn that, AGNI, with thy heat; let thy flame, thy splendour, consume it; with those glorious members which thou hast given him, JATAVEDAS, bear him to the world (of the virtuous)”
The Sanskrit word ‘Sukritam u Lokam’ means ‘the word of the virtuous or region of the pious, referring to the hereafter. The next verse i.e.
Rigveda Book 10 hymn 16 verse 5 says:
“… Putting on (Celestial) life, let the remains (of bodily like) depart: let him, JATAVEDAS be associated with a body.”
This verse too refers to a second life i.e. life after death.
8. Paradise – Swarga in the Vedas:
'Swarg’ i.e. Paradise, is described in several places in the Vedas including.:
Atharva Veda Book 4 hymn 34 verse 6 (Devichand)
“May all these streams of butter, with their banks of honey, flowing with distilled water, and milk and curds and water reach thee in domestic life enhancing thy pleasure. May thou acquire completely these things strengthening the soul in diverse ways.”
(Atharva Veda 4:34:6)
Atharva Veda Book 4 hymn 34 verse 6 (Ved Pra.)
“Having pools of clarified butter, stocks of sweet honey, and having exhilarating drinks for water, full of milk and curds, may all these streams flow to us in the world of happiness swelling sweetly. May our lakes full of lotuses be situated near us.”
(Atharva Veda 4:34:6)
It is mentioned in Atharvaveda
“Bereft of physical bodies, pure, cleansed with the wind, brilliant, they go to a brilliant world. The fire does not cause burning in their male organ. In the world of happiness they get plenty of women.
(Atharva Veda 4:34:2)
It is mentioned in Atharvaveda:
May the realised ones, first of all, take the vital breath under their control from the limbs in which it has been circulating. Go to heaven stay firm with all the parts of your body. Attain the world of light and emancipation, following the path of the enlightened ones (your predecessors)”.
(Atharva Veda 2:34:5)
It is mentioned in Atharavaveda
“O both of you, start to accomplish it, make determined effort to accomplish it. Those having unflinching faith attain this abode of happiness. Whatever ripe offerings you have made in fire of sacrifice, may both, the husband and wife, stand united to guard them with care.
(Atharva Veda 6:122:5)
It is mentioned in the Rigveda:
“O Aila, the loud-sounding clouds, these divines say to you, since you are indeed subject to death, let your progeny propitiate your revered cosmic forces with oblations, then alone you shall rejoice (with me) in heaven”
9. Hell – ‘Nark’ in the Vedas
‘Nark’ or ‘Hell’ is also described in the Vedas and the Sanskrit word used is ‘Narakasthanam’.
It is also mentioned in Rigveda:
“May the bounteous fire divine, consume them with his fiercely glowing sharp jaws like flames, who disregard the commandments and steadfast laws of most venerable and sagacious Lord.
Life after death in Islam "THE HEREAFTER"
1. Live once in this world and then be resurrected in the Hereafter
It is mentioned in the Qur’an
How can ye reject the faith in Allah?
Seeing that ye were without life,
And He gave you life; Then will He cause you to die,
and will He again bring you to life; And again to Him will ye return.
(Al Qur’an 2:28)
Islam states that a human being comes into this world only once, and after he dies, he is again resurrected on the day of judgement. Depending on his deeds he will either dwell in heaven i.e. Paradise or he will dwell in hell.
2. This Life is a test for the hereafter
It is mentioned in the Qur’an
He who created Death and Life,
that He may try which of you is best in deed;
And He is the exalted in Might, oft- forgiving
(Al Qur’an 67:2)
This life that we lead in this world is a test for the hereafter. If we follow the commandments of the Almighty Creator and we pass the test, we shall enter Paradise i.e., which is Eternal Bliss. If we do not follow the commandments of our creator and fail the test then we shall be put into hell.
3. Full Recompense on the Day of Judgement:
It is mentioned in the Qur’an
Every soul shall have a test of death.
And only on the Day of Judgment shall
you be paid your full recompense.
Only he who is saved far from the fire and admitted to the Garden
will have attained the object (of life).
For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception.
(Al Qur’an 3:185)
4. Paradise – Al Jannah
Al-Jannah i.e. paradise is a place of perpetual bliss. In Arabic, ‘jannat’ literally means ‘the Garden’. The Qur’an describes paradise in great detail, such as gardens underneath which rivers run. It contains rivers of milk unchanging in flavour and rivers of purified honey. In paradise is fruit of every kind. No fatigue shall be felt in paradise neither shall there be any idle talk. There shall be no cause of sin, difficulty, anxiety, trouble or hardship. Paradise shall thus have peace and bliss.
Paradise is described in several verses of the Qur’an including:
1.Surah Ale Imran Chapter 3 verse 15
2.Surah Ale Imran Chapter 3 verse 198
3.Surah Al-Nisa Chapter 4 verse 57
4.Surah Al Maidah Chapter 5 verse 119

5. Hell – Jahannam
Hell is a place of torment where evil-doers undergo the most terrible pain and suffering caused by being burnt by hellfire, a fire whose fuel is men and stones. Further, the Qur’an states that as many times as their skins are burnt, the residents of hell shall be given fresh skin so that they feel the pain. Hell is described in several verses of the Qur’an including:
Surah Al-Baqarah Chapter 2 Verse 24
Surah Al-Nisa Chapter 4 Verse 56
Surah Ibrahim Chapter 14 Verses 16,17
Surah Al-Hajj Chapter 22 Verses 19-22
Surah Al-Fatir Chapter 35 Verses 36,37
6. Logical Concepts for differences in different Individuals
In Hinduism, the differences in two individuals at birth is explained by stating past karma i.e. actions of the previous life, as the cause of the differences. There is no scientific or logical proof or evidence of the cycle of rebirths.
How does Islam explain these differences? The Islamic explanation for these differences in different individual is given in Surah Mulk:
All religions of the world - Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and others - have been severely corrupted through innovations, traditions, and the idolization of humans such as the prophets and the saints.
God's plan, as stated in the Old Testament (Malachi 3:1), the New Testament (Luke 17:22-36 & Matthew 24:27), and this Final Testament "Al Quran"(Quran 3:81), calls for the sending of God's Messenger of the Covenant after all the scriptures have been delivered. The main function of God's Messenger of the Covenant is to purify the scriptures and unify them into one universal message to this world from the Creator and Sustainer of this world.
This major scriptural prophecy has now been fulfilled. God's Messenger of the Covenant has arrived, supported by overwhelming tangible proof . The purification and unification process has begun. God's plan is supported by God's invisible forces, and the enormous dimensions of this divine plan is manifest in the recent exposure of false religionists, and the removal of such anti-freedom barriers as the Berlin Wall, the Iron Curtain, and the bamboo curtain.
Henceforth, there is only one religion acceptable to God - Submission. Anyone who submits to God and devotes the worship to God ALONE is a "Submitter." Thus, one may be a Jewish Submitter, a Christian Submitter, a Buddhist Submitter, a Hindu Submitter, or a Muslim Submitter.
The only religion acceptable to God is Submission. "Islam" The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His Will): Nor did the People of the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account. [Quran 3:19]
Anyone who seeks other than Submission as his religion, it will not be accepted from him and, in the Hereafter, he will be with the losers.
And whoever desires other than Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. [ Quran 3:85]
A prophet like me will the Lord, your God, raise up for you from among your kinsmen; to him you shall listen. (Moses in Deuteronomy 18:15)
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kinsmen, and will put My words into his mouth; he shall tell them all that I command him. If any man will not listen to My words which he speaks in My name, I Myself will make him answer for it. (Deuteronomy 18:18-19)
I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Paraclete - to be with you always: THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH. (Jesus in John 14:16-17)
When THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH comes to you, he will guide you to all truth, and will announce to you the things to come. (Jesus in John 16:13)
God's Messenger of the Covenant
Lo, I am sending My messenger to prepare the way before Me; and suddenly there will come to the temple the Lord whom you seek, and the messenger of the covenant whom you desire. Yes, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts. But who will endure the day of his coming? And who can stand when he appears? For he is like the refiner's fire ... he will sit purifying .... (Malachi 3:1-3)
When God ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shirink with a version. But when others are mention- ed besides Him, they rejoice. [Quran 39:45]
On the 27th night of Ramadan, 13 B.H. (Before Hijra) (610 A.D.), the prophet Muhammad (the soul - the real person - not the body) was summoned to the highest possible point, millions of light years from the planet Earth, and this Quran was placed into his heart (Quran 2:185, 17:1, 44:3, 53:1-18, 97:1).
Indeed, We sent the Qur'an down during the Night of Decree.(Quran 97:1)
Subsequently, the Quran was released into Muhammad's memory(Peace be upon him), with Gabriel's mediation, over a period of 23 years, 610 to 632 A.D. (17:106). At the moment of release, Muhammad scrupulously wrote it down with his own hand . What Muhammad left was the complete Quran, written in the chronological sequence of revelation, with detailed instructions for putting the revelations into the sequence decreed by God.
