How often do we make dua for our children ? In some cultures they even curse their children or the uncle or mother of their child. Similarly some cultures say to their kids when they are naughty ” may Allah guide you”.
May Allah guide our children and make good words a custom of our speech and flow easily from our tongues Ameen
Let’s reverse this negative demeaning way of speech and instead of scolding our children or calling them names like “stupid” or “naughty” or saying ” Allah curse you” etc let’s say, ” may Allah guide you” or ” may Allah give you goodness”
Prayers for your children on this blessed Day of Arafat and any other day of the year
Oh Allah I ask you to grant goodness to my children.
Oh Allah I ask you to give them a long blessed life and health.
Oh Allah, bring up among them the young ones.
Oh Allah strengthen among them the weak ones.
Oh Allah cure among them the sick ones.
Oh Allah, help me take care of them, so that they are good to themselves, to us and to others.
