The Duty of the Elder of the Home

Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:

The elder of the home is required to be a few steps ahead of the rest of the family in Deeni issues. The child feels that whatever my parents do is right. If the parent is chatting on his cell-phone secretly, or has a casual relationship with the opposite gender, the child feels that there is nothing wrong in this. The child then lands up in committing major wrongs and vices. Therefore, the parents need to be extremely careful, even in the choice of words they speak.
