The Advice of Luqman al Hakim to his Son


The Holy Qur’an says, “O my son, establish prayer and bid doing good and forbid evil and be patient over whatever befall upon.” (Surah Luqman, verse 17)

This verse shows us the advice a father should give to his children. The words and advice of Luqman were always full of wisdom. Allah Ta’ala took one of his sayings and placed them in the Qur’an. The saying is when he said, “Oh my son, establish prayer and order people to do good.” From this a father should think about his children’s religious matters as well as worldly necessities. We should promise ourselves that we will be punctual in prayer and we will attempt to make our children and our whole family punctual in prayer. May Allah guides us all to be punctual in our prayers. Aameen
