Be inspired by my favourite parenting hadith
In my home, routines and schedules are like laundry drying on the clothesline during a breezy summer day. They’re simple, flowing and effortless.Routines and schedules help parents and kids communicate better and know what to expect.
It’s a win-win!
Allah gave us salah so we could routinely communicate with him directly, five times a day and getting children comfortable with prayer helps them to understand that Allah is always close and accessible.
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Command your children to pray when they become seven years old…” (Abi Dawud)
Tips for thoughtfully teaching your children salah
1. To begin with ask Allah for help, before you begin this rewardable task. Do dua to Allah as only He (SWT) can make it easy for you and ensure it’s a success.
“My Lord, make me an establisher of prayer, and from my descendants. Our Lord, and accept my supplication.” (Qur’an 14:40)
2. Think back to when you were taught how to pray, what encouraged you to pray? Did being told off work? What motivated you to pray your salah regularly? Don’t repeat the mistakes that were made when you were taught salah.
3. Before you begin doing anything with your child, you need to reflect on how you are going to make this a positive experience. So you need to make sure you remain calm when instructing your child because they will make mistakes and sometimes they will not want to pray.
