Riba is one of the most heinous and severely admonished sins in Islam. It brings upon one the wrath of Allah the All-Mighty and makes one's wealth devoid of barakah and blessings. It is a duty upon us to be well-informed of the consequences of engaging in this forbidden act in order to effectively prevent ourselves from falling into it.

Our youth have the right to be raised as God conscious Muslims. By motivating them to devote quality time to learning the Qur'an, you will earn some reward both in this world and even after your death and so will they. And the love of Allah will be nurtured in their hearts. So, get linking the Qur'an and our youth.
Verbally encourage your kids whenever they listen/recite the Qur’an. Smile, let them know how good you think they are doing, and how proud you are of them. Try not to get them used to tangible prizes. If you do get them prizes, make it rare and spontaneous. You wouldn’t want your children to make a connection between reading the Qur’an and instant and tangible rewards. Rather, make it a habit to explain to them the virtues of the Qur’an such as healing and good deeds.
Every Muslim does not need to become an Islamic scholar, but we should regularly seek Islamic knowledge. The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small. The Prophet was asked, “What deeds are loved most by Allah?” He said, “The most regular constant deeds even though they may be few.”
