    Teach him or her ...

    To be a Good Human.

    Tell him or her ... what he or she Knows intrinsically ... Is, the Voice of his or her, Conscience ... never suppress it ... Protect it ... never let it fade away. Stand up for your Convictions.

    That Truth invariably Prevails.

    To Earn an honest living.

    To be Good ... Actively.

    Stand up against Evil ... where ever you find it.

    All of this, is involved ...  in being a Good Muslim.

    Live the example every day.  Words are helpful, but actions are everything.  Children are extremely perceptive, adults are transparent. "Do as I do".

    If you are lucky, your words will come out of your children's mouths to their children someday and then you will live forever.

    Be sure you are remembered for the right things.  Love, Kindness, joy, forgiving, justice, honesty, giving, fidelity, laughter and love again (needs to be said twice).  That is your legacy.

    I think the two most valuable things I would like to pass on to my children are;

    Do unto others - Very simple philosophy. Treat others as well as you would like to be treated.

    Common sense - so rare are those that think before they act, or before they speak. If I could pass on the gift of common sense that would be amazing.

    Without hesitation, self respect for from self respect comes respect for all else.
