Those are going to be new parents, they usually buy a couple of baby books from the market but don’t buy books about child care. However, these books discuss only one aspect of child-rearing and that is the medical issues. We have tried to present the issues of child-rearing in coordination with science and Islam.
Solving important baby problems
Alhamdulillah, there are several books on child-rearing in the market. These books are written by gynecologists or pediatricians. We did the same thing before our child was born, I bought two books of this kind which are very useful to us. The new mothers and fathers would have benefited even more if every subject in these books had been written in connection with Islam. Because when a doctor solves a child’s problem with a reference to Islam, it will be the perfect solution and the Muslim reader will take that very seriously.
Pregnant mother’s education
A child comes and makes a woman’s life blessed. A woman enters another life with motherly love. The real mother is the one who nurtures the child properly. Just being a mother is not enough to be a mother. In most cases, when a woman is pregnant, she does not study the subject. But the issue is very important and comprehensive.
Pregnant mothers in our country are only worried about food and drink and don’t worry too much about anything else. We have already seen that there are various courses for pregnant women in North America. Many books and DVDs are available in the market on this subject, which should be read and seen before becoming pregnant. There are also many sites on the Internet from where you can study at home. So much for an ordinary mother.
The responsibility of the ideal mother
The responsibilities of a Muslim mother are far greater than those of other mothers. In addition to these studies, she will further study how to raise her child as an ideal Muslim, and how the light of true religion will enter the heart of her child. That is why it is necessary to read Islamic children’s literature, to read the commentary of the Qur’an, to read the biography of the Prophet (s), and to read the biography of the Companions.
There are also plenty of Islamic DVDs available now and we can gain knowledge by watching many videos on the internet. During pregnancy, girls usually spend a lot of time on hand and working mothers usually stay at home after giving birth. At this time mothers can acquire appropriate knowledge by studying Islam. It can also give you a lot of peace of mind.
The educational phase of the child in the mother’s womb
1st Steps of Newborn
In the womb of every mother for up to 40 days but in the form of semen, then for the next 40 days the blood clots, then turns into a piece of meat in another 40 days. Then Allah sent an angel who was asked to write about four things about the human child, namely his sustenance, longevity, good and bad luck. Then the soul (life) is given in that human embryo.
Medical science analysis for pregnant mother
Medical science says that the baby’s heart is formed in the first month after pregnancy and the baby’s heart starts working within one and a half months of pregnancy. Within the next two months, his limbs and other organs were formed. From the age of three months onwards, he began to grow slowly and from the age of five months, he began to hear.
Therefore, from the third month, the mother should read the Qur’an-Hadith aloud instead of slowly. Recite the Qur’an aloud. From the fifth month onwards, you can talk to the fetus alone. He can be heard talking well, etc.
If it is the first child, the baby’s first movement is felt after 20 weeks of gestation. And if there is a second or third or more subsequent pregnancy without the first pregnancy, then the mother senses the movement of the baby immediately after 16 to 18 weeks of gestation.
Mistakes should be minimized
In the mother’s womb, the child receives food through the navel and grows slowly. So, after a considerable influence of the mother’s character on the child. If a mother does not pray regularly five times a day, she should start praying regularly from that time (five times). The mistakes that are in the mother should be gradually reduced from this time.
Mother’s precautions before childbirth
Activities of pregnant mothers
It is a sad fact that pregnant mothers spend 9 months and 10 days (40 weeks) doing un-Islamic activities. God has given us children as a blessing, for this we should always express our gratitude to Allah but we do the opposite. We do the things that Allah has forbidden and the things that He does not like to do in the state of pregnancy. In order to spend their leisure time, it has been seen that many mothers spend their time sitting in front of the TV with remote control, enjoying obscene dances, songs, serials, dramas, Hindi movies, etc.
Impact on the child
If we think a little deeper, we can see that the baby in the womb hears everything and understand the mother’s actions. If a mother prays five times like a tick, during this time read good books, recite the Qur’an, listen to the recitation of the Qur’an, listen to the translation of the Qur’an, read the Qur’an Hadith, read the Tafsir of the Qur’an, listen to Islamic lectures and see what kind of good effect that will have on the unborn child?
And if a mother does the exact opposite, Islam does what it does not approve of, does what Allah has forbidden, does what the Prophet Muhammad disliked or forbade the pregnant mother to do, what will be the effect on her unborn child? After this, I think that I am doing everything that Allah dislikes with the blessings given by Allah in my stomach.
To express gratitude
Will the child who has gone wish this child to be healthy or sick? Will this child live or die in the end? Will this child be dumb or crippled? All this depends on the great Creator. If he wants, he gives children to some, he does not give children to others, he gives sons to some, he gives daughters to some. So, we should always seek help from Allah Almighty regarding the child, Allah should be grateful and pleased.
At Our Thoughts
If you can’t control yourself, you should disconnect the TV dish or cable from the house. Even if you want to, at least you can stay away from activities like obscene songs, dances, serials, dramas, Hindi movies, etc.
