This study aims at investigating the child rights culture that the Islamiceducational thought gives to children based on the Quran and Sunnah, incontrast with the international legislations represented in the convention onthe rights of the child 1989, and the common thought in the Islamic societyamongst the child educators such as parents and teachers. The study aimsalso to developing a list of the rights of the child to be standardized laterto examine the child rights culture for those educators. The study revealedplenty of child rights that the Islamic thought gives in meeting children needs.Hence, the study concludes that Islam has got unlimited number of child rights,and the convention on the rights of the child covered the whole aspects of lifebut less comprehensive than what were got by the Islamic thought. Moreover,most of the common thought was incompatible with the true Islamic thought,in addition to the deduction of a behavioral list to examine the culture ofchild rights among educators. Accordingly, a number of recommendationsare suggested such as designing a systematic model for the rights of the child,and categorizing child rights in Islam and in the international legislations.
