It is prayer time and my children are rushed to say a prayer in time Alhamdolillah. I remember the day when my daughter was 12 years old and prayer was like a heavy burden on her, So I told her to pray one day and I monitored her. She took the praying rug and threw it on the ground. I asked her if she prayed – she said yes – Believe me, without feeling I slapped her straight in the face. The situation had troubled me and I cried and I repented to God to forgive me. The slap, the talk, the reminders did not make a difference to my child.
One day a friend told me a story. She went to one of her friends for a visit. Her friend was not very religious, but when the prayer time came and Adhan was called, her children rushed for prayers without reminders or quarrel. I asked her how do your children pray on themselves without quarrel or a reminder? She said before I got married I used to pray this Dua and still recite it today.
After she told me the Dua, I began to recite in my prayers and anytime I could. Since I began to recite the Dua my daughter is now the first to pray without reminders or quarrels. She gets up in Fajr without an alarm. And all her brothers are now eager in praying without any difficulties.
Supplication for all:
I know You are now eager to know this Supplication Dua.
The Supplication is in Surah Ibrahim 14:40.
And the Supplication is…
( رَبِّ ٱجۡعَلۡنِى مُقِيمَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِىۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلۡ دُعَآءِ (٤٠
“Rabbi-Ajal’ni muqeema salaati, wa min thurriyyati, Rabbana wataqabbal duaa”
“O my Lord! make me one who establishes regular Prayer, and also (raise such) among my offspring O our Lord! and accept Thou my Prayer.”
Start today do not wait until you get married and until you have kids, prevention is better than cure. 🙂
Spread the knowledge so it will be Sadqa-e-Jaaria for you and for me… ان شاء الله.
