For Fathers

Some ways a father can spend quality time with his children and develop a relationship with them:

Show in simple ways you love them
Don’t try to win children with gifts rather than giving of yourself. This may cause more harm. When his daughter Fatima (radhiallahu anha) would come to him, the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) used to stand up, kiss her, take her hand, and give her his seat. Later in life, this affection will be much more memorable to a child than a gift that anyone could give them.

Have at least 2 meals a week as a family
Islam encourages Muslims to eat together.

Give your small children a bath sometimes
Usually, mom bathes them, but this is an opportunity for fathers to be with their kids.
