Disobedient children

Q: I am a single parent and have two kids a boy and a girl. Both of them are very disobedient. They keep on fighting for little things. Everybody gets irritated of them… both have violent and destructive natures. They do not tolerate each other at all. In short both are mannerless and don’t want to understand anything. I have made them understand politely and harshly in both manners. The result is the same. In short they let me down in front of everyone due to their violent speech and behaviour. Kindly help me and guide me!


A: We advise that you commence the five a’maal daily at home. (1) Qur’aan recitation (2) Taleem of Fazaa’il-e-A’maal and Fazaa’il-e-Sadaqaat (3) Bahishti Zewar (4) Zikr (5) Collective dua. Insha Allah this will prove effective for the tarbiyat of your children.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
