I just wanted to know if it's haram for parents to hit their children because my parents always slap me if I do something wrong


Hitting children in a moderate way as a means of disciplining children is not forbidden in Islam but rather discouraged than encouraged.

I found a good contribution on this topic here.

However, children should follow their parents also if they are not punished.

  • but why is not haram in islam to hit your children

  • Something is - or should - be declared haram only if there is evidence from the Qur'an or from qualified hadith that God forbade to do this or at least the Prophet (p.b.u.h) did so. The mere information from hadith indicating that Muhammad did probably not slay his children is sufficient for a recommendation but not to forbid.

Regarding correcting or disciplining children, it is alright. Yet hitting anyone on the face is forbidden.

  • This answer could be more helpful if you added evidence supporting your claims!
