Playing cricket with people of the same age group is no doubt lot of fun, Alhamdulillah. But playing cricket or any game with children is fun too, Alhamdulillah because you enjoy and at the same time you can teach them morals.
Often children want to pair up or make their own group and isolate certain people or cheat just to win or take revenge. Its all about winning to them.
But if we guide them through play we can teach them an important lesson in losing with dignity,playing honestly, taking care of the environment (not to spit or dirty the place),the language they use no matter what the circumstances (no abuse or hurtful words) . Also maths!
May Allah Guide us all and grant us opportunities and knowledge to guide our children and their friends. Ameen
