Executive Summary:

Being a parent is both a responsibility and a gift from Allah. The fulfilment of this responsibility should bring about gratitude. The key to being a successful parent is taking balanced means for the success of the child in this world and the next world. Three mentors, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, Shaykh Zahir Bacchus, and Ustadha Umm Umar, explain how good parenting is achieved through implementing the Islamic concepts of tarbiya (nurturing), tahdhib (Inculcating proper manners), and ta’leem (teaching).
