When Should My Child Perform Prayer?
Sabrah bin Ma`bad Al-Juhani (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “Teach a boy Salah (the prayer) when he reaches the age of seven, and punish him (if he does not offer it) at ten”. (Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi)
Prayer will be first thing about whom one will be questioned on the day of judgment. It is a pillar of Islam. A Muslim parent may wonder at what age should he or she start teaching their child prayer and it’s importance? As parents, we want our children to offer and experience the beauty of the daily obligatory and optional prayer. Through prayer every parent wants their child to build an unbreakable relationship with Allah and their faith.
What method should parents use? Should they be strict? Should they be lenient? When is the right time? And what is the right method? Watch this interesting video to get the answer with Sheikh Yahya Ibrahim.
