Abstract: Rearing up of a child in a proper way is the burning issue of the third world countries, especially in Bangladesh. Recently we have seen most of the educated people are careless and insincere to the rights of child. Aristocrats violate the rights of child in most cases. The educated and rich people even appoint the child for domestic work in Bangladesh and deprive them from their educational and cultural rights and torture mercilessly. Someone earns money with the help of child appointing in inhuman work. So, it is a common phenomenon that a child is not able to take the responsibility of household work and others because of immaturity of health and mind. For lack of love and affections a child may become physically and mentally disable and back warded. But the Holy Quran and Prophet (s) emphasize to build up health, mind, education, culture, carrier and character of them. Islam has given many injunctions and made obligatory duty about marital contact, unborn child, genetic purity, maternity, birth, food and nutrition of mother and child, suckling milk, environment, gender discrimination, independence and social responsibility to childcare only to protect the rights of children. As children are the gift of Allah and the half of the nation of the world, protecting them from all kinds of alarming and dangerous situations is also the important duty of the guardians. In this paper, the research focuses how Islam ensures the rights of children and what are the obligatory duties of the Muslims to them.
