  1. Good one. Regarding point 2, along with reading; also memorize Quran Majeed with younger siblings. And one more thing to consider is the their friend list. Try to give atleast 10 minutes daily to listen what they did in school today and that will bring alot to think upon, to understand their activities and to guide them appropriately.

    • Thank you very much for your feedback. I definitely agree that it would be good to dedicate some time to simply talking to them about their friends, school etc. However, I believe that we shouldn’t try to act like their parents, but instead focus on our responsibility as their siblings.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words! However, I don’t even see myself as that young and there’s a lot more I want to do for the ummah in the future insha’Allah. :)

  2. Lol I wish I could accomplish even a few of these things… me and my sister are usually at it like cats and dogs! She is not Muslim either so the chances of me taking her to the masjid or getting her to praying with me are quite slim. But Insha’Allah…

    • Insha’Allah, your sister will become Muslim in the future, so you guys can enjoy some of the religious activities together. Maybe you can try out some of the other activities in the meantime. Anyways, the best thing you can do is make Du’a for her so that Allah (swt) guides her to the right path. :)

  3. A very interesting article! May Allah rewards you for your good deeds.
    But, how if our siblings are far away from us and living in different city and country.. However, it is the one thing I really hope to do…. insha Allah.

    • Thank you very much! I’m in the exact same situation. Since I moved to Algeria for one year, me and my siblings are basically on two different continents. And even though I might not be able to do these activities with them at the moment, I will when I get back insha’Allah. :) Also, thanks to the Internet, there are many ways to keep in touch with them and talk to them on an almost daily basis. If you want to make it more personal, you can always send letters or small packages. :)

  4. MaShaaAllah TabarakAllah! :) This is beautiful, ukhti. May Allah reward you immensely and make it weigh heavily on your scale of good deeds.

    I’m 19 years old myself, and after reading your description, I thought, ‘Hey! She’s just like me!’ Well, more or less. I love languages as well, and Islam and spreading the deen, and writing articles and benefiting the Ummah. May Allah accept our efforts :D

    I have a proposition for you. And although, we don’t know each other personally, I hope this doesn’t stop you from considering it. I’m recruiting teen and youth writers for an upcoming Islamic website, and would love to have you on board. The website’s name is and we have a facebook page – Muslim Eyes – as well. Feel free to check them out. Of course, the website has not launched as of yet, so the material on it is temporary. I like your style of writing and I think you would be an asset to the group.


  5. As salaamu alaykum Naima Asma.

    Very well written article, maa shaa Allaah. May Allaah reward you for the beautiful reminders, aameen. Although I do not live close to my younger brothers, we still keep in touch utilizing few tips that you have mentioned above. Also, your tips will surely be useful for my own children bi idhnillaah.

    And mabruk on your acceptance into medical school. Way to go Sis!
