A question that asks whether parents need to offer any kind of kaffarah for the mishandling of Arabic letters by kids.

Assalam alaikum,

Sometimes I see kids (3yrs to 6 yrs old) mishandling the paper/book on which they write and learn Arabic letters or words. Do the parents need to offer any kind of Kaffarah for this mishandling of Arabic letters by the kids or is it okay as long as these are not Quranic verse?

Jazakallah

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

The children should be made aware of it because their disrespect is not permissible either. If the disrespect is done unknowingly then one should feel sorry and seek forgiveness on their mistake and effort should be made that the carelessness should not be done again.
