14 lessons for my fourteen year old son

Dear Hazwan,
You will be 14 tomorrow. I am so proud of you. You are growing up beautifully. You’ve learned so much and you love effortlessly. I love you with all my heart. We rarely talk about what’s going on in your life. I wish we could just chill out, talk and have fun with each other. There are so many things I wanted to teach you. But for now here are a few things I would love for you to learn and remember always.
#1)  Remember Allah always in everything that you do.
#2)  Pray 5 times a day without fail, not for me but for Allah and for you
#3)  Recite Quran daily even though you don’t understand the meaning. It’s food for your soul
#4)  Don’t give in to peer pressure. Don’t be afraid to be different.
#5) Choose your friends wisely. Good friends will not let do things that will hurt you
#6) Always tell the truth. It's easier and it's good for your health
#7) Love and respect your mother.
#8) Knowledge is the most powerful thing. Don't stop learning just because it's a school holiday
#9) Apologize . Don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry"
#10) Get in the habit of saving money.
#11) Drink milk.You are never too old for milk
#12) Be kind to your brothers and sister. They are your family even though you might think that you don’t have anything in common
#13) Do things that you love with passion and knowledge. If you are good, you might get paid for it
#14) I am always here for you. Don't be afraid to tell me anything, even though you might  think I do not understand
Happy Birthday Hazwan. I love you forever and always.
