The Tawhid of Tarbiyya — How To Bring Up Children (1992)
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
An inspirational talk on the tarbiyya (upbringing) of children. We are all programmed by a perennial blueprint, al-fitrah, which is like a film that needs to be safeguarded from the harsh environment so as not to be damaged before it can be processed.
This process is tarbiyya. All of us are growing in tarbiyya from simple needs and demands to greater and higher ones, until we reach beyond existential means to the Source of tarbiyya itself, al-Rabb.
