Idea 7: Model it yourself!

Idea 7: Model it yourself!

It sounds so obvious but unfortunately (am telling myself first!), we often forget to model the best behaviour ourselves.

Here’s what someone sent in: “Start through actions rather than words. Many of us have grown up with parents who would tell us to go pray but they would be finishing up cooking in the kitchen or cleaning, etc instead of going to pray.”

Simple things like stopping whatever we are doing at Salaat time, taking some time to recite Azan and Iqamah beforehand, and the tasbeeh and duas afterwards.

If however, we are grumbling at how early Fajr salaat time is during the summer or how we have a million things to do…this will also have an effect.

My own first memories are listening to my dad recite the Fajr dua out loud after Salaat…he wouldn’t force us (in fact, we would usually be asleep on the musalla straight after finishing!), but that recitation has stuck in mind and now when i recite it, i can often hear his melody in my head
