It is unfortunate that there are young Muslims who have been raised by
Muslim parents but have not read the biography of the Prophet even one
day, while they have heard the names of hundreds of disbelievers and
other Muslim personalities. In truth, this is a deficiency from the
parents, because the mind and heart of the child is like a vessel - if
you fill it with good, it will be filled with good, and if you fill it
with evil, then evil will occupy it. And if you neglect these vessels,
someone else will fill them.
It is upon the Muslim fathers to fear Allah the Exalted and to fill the
hearts and minds of their children with the sirah of the Prophet and the
seerah of his Companions, so they can take them as their role models.
The youth will definitely take someone as a role model. If you make the
Prophet their role model, they will succeed in this life and the next.
If not, others will give them role models, such as athletes, actors, and
singers. Thus, fear Allah, O noble fathers, concerning your children.
