Time to Start Salat

When I started homeschooling, my biggest fear was teaching my daughter to read. I often wondered if I would be successful and if I could pull it off. I mean, what if I couldn't convey the message to her properly? Would she fall behind?

Now, I look back and laugh to myself because I was so frantic. And just when I've gotten comfortable,I realize that I now have an even greater obligation. My daughter will turn seven very soon, InshaALLAH and I hope to prepare her for salat. She has joined me as I pray on rare occasions, but now, I want to gently nudge her along, hoping that the act of salat will soon become a natural addition to her day and that she feels inclined to show her obedience and love for ALLAH on her own, InshaALLAH.

I've started using the lessons from Talibiddeen Jr because MashaALLAH, it's all there and it's organized and it saves me time. We're doing a little copywork here and there and discussing the various positions, times, conditions, etc.



InshaALLAH, I also plan to show her the dvd Pray As You Have Seen Me Pray.
