Abstract

Nowadays, technological advances are expanding rapidly around the world, including Malaysia. Technology has a lot of positive impacts on the survival of everyday society, such as meeting human needs and wants. One of the technologies that are gaining the community's attention, including children today, is gadgets. However, using these gadgets sometimes causes people to become addicted to using them if not controlled. This situation also affects children because children also include those who are easily addicted to using gadgets. Although gadgets provide benefits, when their use is excessive and uncontrolled, this will have a detrimental effect on health and morale. Therefore, there are two main objectives of this article written. First, to explain the disadvantages of gadget addiction in children, the second objective is to analyze the role of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w in educating children and its application to prevent gadget addiction. To fulfil the objectives, the documentation method is carried out. The data were collected and analyzed based on content analysis to apply the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w method in educating children to overcome gadget addiction among children. The study found three main ways of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w in educating children imitated by parents in overcoming children's addictions such as parents being role models to children, communicating with the child and choosing friends.
