“And establish prayer and pay zakah, and bow with those who bow”.
We all know that Salah is the second pillar of Islam, but often it’s a struggle for parents to raise children who pray regularly. Here are 9 tips to help your children to establish salah.
Lead by Example
“Believers, why do you say what you do not do? It is most offensive in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do!”
When your children see you praying salah regularly, they will understand salah’s importance. How can you teach your children to pray regularly if you are not modeling this practice?
Teach Your Children Why we Pray
Children are curious, thinking creatures. Explain to them the reasons and wisdom behind salah, such as:
- It’s a way to show thankfulness to Allah for everything He gave us
- It’s a way to be obedient to Allah’s commands
- It helps us to remember that this life is temporary and our priority is to succeed in in the next life.
