Rights of children in Islam


In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.


Allaah has given children rights over their parents just as the parents have rights over their children. 

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar said:
“Allaah has called them abraar (righteous) because they honoured (barru) their fathers and children. Just as your father has rights over you, so too your child has rights over you.”  
[ Al-Adab al-Mufrad, 94. ]

“… and your child has rights over you.” 
[ Muslim, 1159 ]
