Hit When Not Angry

When children are naughty and the only solution to reform them is hitting them, parents should not hit them in the state of anger.

The reason is because, the intention of hitting them may be abused to vent and cool off their anger, which is detrimental to the psychology and physical of the child. Such an intention will defeat the purpose of hitting, i.e. for the child to be reformed.

It is suggested that parents in the state of anger exercise the following, in order:

1. Tolerance by containing their anger until it subsides
2. Thereafter, create an impression of anger and hit the child.

Hitting the child with the proper intention will realise the desired effect. InshaAllah.
