How can I keep my kids out of
trouble and sins during the
vacation according to the

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
The Muslim youth should know
that the free time is a grace
bestowed on him by Allah. He
should also know that he will
be asked about it on the Day of
Resurrection. Our Prophet
Muhammad said: “Many
people are prejudiced by two blessings:
Health and Free-time.” [Al-Bukhari]
Our Prophet also said: “Every
person will remain standing on the Day
of Resurrection until he is asked about
four (things); of which he told: 'How he
spent his life'.” And in another
narration he said: “On what
he frayed his youth.”
Furthermore, the Prophet
said: “Take advantage of five before
five; of which He told: One's free-time
before getting busy, one's youthhood
before getting old.” [Al-Haakim] He
also said: “Allah will shelter
in His shade seven (types of
people) on the Day of
Resurrection" (o f which he
counted:) “A youth who grew up
worshipping Allah.” [Al-Bukhari and

A Muslim youth should know
that time is his capital and if he
does not make good use of it he
will regret that. It is not good
for a Muslim youth to have
leisure time in his life. Instead,
he should utilize his time on
what benefits him in this world
as well as in the Hereafter. And
of these the benefits we cite: to
learn Quran by heart, to attend
lessons of Quran, to memorize
the Prophet's Ahadeeth, to learn
more of the religious
knowledge, to visit the good
scholars, to benefit (read) from
the Islamic newspapers and
from the Islamic cassettes, to
participate in religious activities,
such as summer camps, picnics,
etc. The youth should organize
his time and make a program
for himself that he follows.
As for children, the best thing
on which they should spend
their time during holidays is
attending circles of
memorization of the Quran. The
Prophet said: "The best of you
are those who learn Quran and teach
it." [Al-Bukhari]

Moreover, giving recreation to
children by letting them do
permissible entertainment is
something needed, as this
renews their motivation, urges
them to be energetic, and
makes them welcome studies
with a high interest and
motivation. So there is no harm
in taking them to parks and
children play areas provided
that these places are free from
prohibitions, like music and the
like; this is something possible
if a person chooses the right
time of taking them.

The parents could also advise
their children to practice any
type of sport which will make
them fit and healthy, or teach
them a craft that suits their age
and bodily strength. If children
organize their time well, they
would be able to grasp much of
what is mentioned, the most
important of which is attending
circles of memorization of the
Allah knows best.
