Do not supplicate against your children!

Fataawa Su.aal ‘alal-Haatif – v1, p146

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen advised:

Supplicating against the children is wrong!

If the children do something which is not befitting for them to have done, then that which is obligatory upon you is to supplicate [to Allaah] for their guidance. So you [should] say something like:

“May Allaah rectify you O my child! Why did you do such-and-such?”

“May Allaah guide you O my child! Why did you do such-and-such?”

And do not say “may Allaah deal with you” or “may Allaah break your back”, or what is similar to that.
