One way to start talking about Allah with children is to remind them about the qualities of Allah Most High. Remind your child about Allah at different times of the day. For example, start to teach him the du'a before going to bed and after waking up. Teach him the du'a before eating and after eating. Teach him the du'a after leaving the house and when traveling in the car. You can help your child understand the meanings of each of these du'a. Basically, the idea is show your child through the du'a that Allah is in control of everything, all the time. Allah gives us our food, grants us sleep when we are tired, and keeps us safe when we travel.
      You should not worry about whether or not your son is fully convinced with your explanations. Over time, just get your son to identify himself as Muslim, realize the beauty of Islam, and to love Allah, the Messenger, and his (your son's) parents. And Allah knows best.
    • I Completely agree with all what you've said dear brother. I also thank you for this great topic

      In order to build a strong foundation of faith in a child, parents and educators have to start early. The lives of the Masumeen (a) teach us that religious training must begin early. If we study the life of Bibi Fatimah (a) we see that she began the spiritual training of her children very early. Her children were very young when she died and whatever guidance she passed on to them was given at that early age. Her training was often remembered by her children. When Imam Husayn (a) refused to do bayat of Yazeed, he said: I am not permitted to do so by Allah, by His Prophet, or the pious mother who brought me up or the very thought of my pious and celebrated father. None of them permits me that I should prefer humiliation over a honorable death. There are also other examples of the children of Bibi Fatimah (a) attributing their noble actions to the piety and teachings of their mother. The effect she had on them is undeniable, although they were of tender age when she died. This tell us that she must have started imparting religious and spiritual teachings at an early age

      hadith of the sixth Imam (a) says: Make your children learn Islamic traditions and religious traditions before the opponents take a lead in misleading them. When the danger of wrong and deviated influences is great - even at a young age, the need for an early start in religious training is even stronger. Today's children are exposed to the influence of television, films, books, friends etc. at a very young age. Vigilant parents and educators must counter these influences and make sure spiritual and religious values find a strong niche in the mind of the child
    • Practical ways to foster faith

      A. Talk about God constantly to the child. Use events such as sickness, death, birth, in the family and in the community, to talk about God

      B. When something good happens to them, remind them to thank Allah. Ask them to perform Sajdah of shukr, pray two rakaat namaz of shukr etc

      C. When they do something wrong tell them to ask forgiveness form God

      D. Get them involved in religious activities at home: prayers, Duas, Qur'an, taking out Sadaqah etc

      E. Participate in religious activities in the mosque and in the community

      F. Talk and discuss about events in the Muslim world. Let the child feel that he is part of the Muslim Ummah

      G. When reading to the child, sometimes read from religious books. Discuss and compare events from Islamic history, and make them aware of inspirational examples of the heroes of Islam

      Parents and teachers who impart religious and spiritual training at an early age will see the rewards as the child develops. There will be less tension as the child enters the turbulent teenage years when he is faced with a myriad of deviating influences. His faith will be able to counter these influences and help him remain steadfast on the right path
