        How Prophet Muhammad Reprimanded Children                    
      “Go away!”
      “Stop it, you nuisance!”

      Is it not considered ‘normal’ in most societal circles today for
      adults to address minor children in such a tone, and with derogatory
      words?

      Parents, teachers, and other caregivers can lose their patience with
      the naughty mischiefs of children very quickly, especially if these
      children are extremely intelligent, curious, energetic, bold,
      self-confident and spirited.



      Children are a big blessing of God. Having children and raising them
      righteously lays the foundation of a stable extended family structure.

      Whilst most of us are well-aware of and regularly exhort the great
      rights of parents in Islam, we tend to overlook the fact that little
      children are also born with certain Islamic rights that we have
      to fulfill as an obligation. Even the unseen, unheard fetus in the womb
      has rights, which can delay the distribution of inheritance, as well as
      affect the rulings regarding divorce in Islam.

      Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) handled many situations
      involving the antics and natural tendencies of infants and minor
      children with exemplary patience and good-naturedness.

      As God has commanded us in the Quran to emulate Prophet Muhammad as a
      ticket to earning His ultimate pleasure with us in the Hereafter, we
      should see how the Prophet corrected or reprimanded small children
      whenever they did something that could, in the modern world, severely
      test the patience and tolerance of most stressed-out, quick-to-snap
      adults.

      Tolerance for Infant Messes

      Babies under the age of one are cuddly, chubby and adorable; bundles
      of joy that everyone loves to hold, kiss, hug, coo over and carry
      around.

      That is, until they do something smelly and leaky in their diaper.

      As soon as that happens, the hitherto adoring adult (especially a
      male one) who is holding them, immediately scrunches up their nose in
      disgust and hands them over to the mother or nanny for cleanup.

      However, this was not what the Prophet did in such a situation. He
      would often take infants in his lap, even though in that era there were
      no leak-proof diapers!

      Narrated Aisha:

      “A boy was brought to the Prophet to do tahnik for him, but the boy urinated on him, whereupon the Prophet had water poured on the place of urine.” (Al-Bukhari)

      Prophet Muhammad refrained from expressing disgust or immediately
      denying a newborn baby his lap even when the baby urinated on his
      clothes! This indicates his exemplarily high level of tolerance for
      babies’ natural phases, as it is normal for newborns to urinate often.

      The lesson for us in this habit of Prophet Muhammad is to not get
      irritated at the natural, physical messes that babies tend to make (such
      as nose emissions, excreta, or regurgitated milk), even if the mess
      gets on our clothes. We should also help clean up the mess without
      considering it beneath our social dignity to do so.

      Tolerating Natural Toddler Antics

      Babies grow older to become active and energetic toddlers (known
      nowadays as ‘preschoolers’), who love climbing on to the laps and backs
      of adults and playing “rough house”.

      It is well known that the Prophet not just allowed children in this age-range inside his masjid
      during obligatory congregational prayers, but also patiently tolerated
      their antics during prayers, even if these antics caused noise or
      disturbance.

      Reported by Abdullah ibn Shaddad from his father:

      “The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came out to lead us in either maghrib or ‘isha’ one night, and he was carrying Hassan or Husain. The Messenger of Allah came forward and put (the child) down, then he said takbir and started to pray. During the prayer, he prostrated and made his prostration long.

      My father said: “I raised my head and I saw the child on the back of
      the Messenger of Allah whilst he was prostrating, so I returned to my
      prostration.”

      When the Messenger of Allah finished praying, the people said:

      “O Messenger of Allah, during your prayer you prostrated for so long
      that we thought something had happened or that you were receiving
      Revelation.”

      He said:

      Nothing at all happened, but my son was riding on my back and I did not want to disturb him until he had had enough. (An-Nisa’i)

      This hadith is another great example of how tolerant the
      Prophet was regarding children’s naughtiness. Imagine a small child in
      the age-range 2-4 (who can be carried easily) climbing on to the back of
      a masjid’s imam during prostration nowadays. What do you think his reaction would be?

      Yet, Prophet Muhammad lengthened his prostration just to let
      the child continue his enjoyment and innocent play, hereby causing some
      concern and undoubtedly a bit of chagrin to the worshippers praying
      behind him in the congregation.

      Using His Hands Gently to Reprimand

      Children love physical displays of affection, and like being touched
      in a positive manner. Instead of subjecting them to long monologues and
      lectures to correct their mistakes, physically removing them from harm
      is more effective.

      Narrated Abu Hurairah:

      “Dates used to be brought to Allah’s Messenger immediately after
      being plucked. Different persons would bring their dates till a big heap
      collected (in front of the Prophet). Once Al-Hassan and Al-Husain were
      playing with these dates, one of them took a date and put it in his
      mouth. Allah’s Messenger looked at him and took it out from his mouth
      and said: “Don’t you know that Muhammad’s offspring do not eat what is
      given in charity?” (Al-Bukhari)

      The Prophet taking the date out of his grandson’s mouth himself
      whilst giving him a short explanation of the reason, deployed the most
      effective strategy of quickly resolving the situation. Which small child
      would willingly spit a tasty, sweet date out from their mouth
      themselves?

      Most parents today, however, keep shouting at a small child to not
      touch an object or to stay away from a dangerous area, all the while
      being ignored by the child. They then snap and give the child a harsh
      scolding in front of everyone for not listening to them.

      The lesson from this hadith about the correct thing to do in
      such a situation is for an adult to get up quickly and physically
      remove the small child from harm, warning them about the reason in brief
      words.

      The hadith below also corroborates this strategy:

      Anas said:

      “Allah’s messenger was one of the best of men in character. One day,
      he sent me to do something, and I said: “I swear by Allah that I will
      not go”. But in my heart I felt that I should go to do what the Prophet
      of Allah had commanded me. So I went out and came upon some boys who
      were playing in the street. All of a sudden Allah’s Messenger, who had
      come up behind, caught me by the back of the neck, and when I looked at
      him, he was laughing. He said: “Go where I ordered you, little Anas”. I
      replied: “Yes, I am going, messenger of Allah!” (Abu Dawud)

      Prophet Muhammad used a combination of physical touch and gentle
      reprimanding words to make little Anas realize his forgetfulness. The
      Prophet knew that it is natural for a little boy to get distracted from
      an errand by other children’s street games.

      This hadith also indicates that when a child passes the
      toddler stage, it is permissible to train them to do light, easy tasks
      for adults, but to remember that it is normal for him or her to resist
      immediate obedience and to get distracted by other children’s play.

      Explaining Concisely for Correction
       
       
       
       
       
       

      the Prophet would gently and concisely correct them and explain…
      When a child becomes older i.e. beyond the age of 6-7, he or she
      reaches the age of mentally understanding what is right and what is
      wrong. When he encountered such a child doing something the wrong way,
      the Prophet would gently and concisely correct them and explain to them
      how to do it right, without scolding harshly or making them feel
      humiliated in front of others.

      Umar ibn Abu Salamah reported:

      “I was a boy under the care of the Messenger of Allah, and as my hand used to wander around in the dish, he said to me once:

      “Mention Allah’s Name (i.e., say Bismillah), eat with your right hand, and eat from what is in front of you.”  (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

      Little children have short attention spans, high energy levels, and
      an extremely curious nature due to which they want to explore everything
      in the world, most of which is still very new to them. However, we can
      misinterpret their natural actions and reactions to situations in a
      negative manner, unless we proactively practice patience with their
      behavior without belittling, rebuking or reprimanding them harshly and
      unjustly.

      Because little children are a sacred trust from God, we should remind
      ourselves not to be harsh with them. God is not even writing their
      “sins” yet, even if they deliberately break a precious piece of
      crockery, or touch anything in our cupboards or drawers that we have
      kept strictly off limits.

      As parents, if we lose patience with our children and treat them
      wrong, we should immediately and sincerely repent for it before Allah.
      Parents who do not regret nor repent for the wrongs they committed
      towards their children when the latter were young, weak and dependent
      upon them, end up being faced with resentful and aloof offspring in
      their old age, because their little ones grew up with disturbing
      childhood memories that morphed into a deep grudge over the years.

      By regularly reading and studying the Prophet’s loving and mild
      behavior with children, we can prevent ourselves from treating children
      in a manner that could displease God and detriment our relationship with
      them in the long term.
