There are several verses in the Quran that describe the magnitude of the role of a father. Similarly in the Sunnah and the life history of the Prophet Muhammad who speaks to the attention of the Prophet towards their children. The Friends and salaf generation also proved how their role in educating their children to become scholars. There are a number of theories about the role of fathers of children that developed since the 1980s until the decade of the 20th century. Michael E. Lamb is an important scientist who pioneered the study of Fathering. A number of other theories continue to grow along with the increasing complexity of fatherhood.
