HYDERABAD: After Bengaluru, a masjid in Hyderabad follows a highly remarkable initiative of encouraging Muslim kids to wake up early to offer Fajr prayers by awarding them with gifts.
Speaking to the Siasat.Com correspondent, the organising committee of Jama Masjid located in Salarjung Colony in Toli Chowki said that the programme for full 40 days was initiated about 20 days ago and around seventy five children signed up in total.
An average of fifty children manage to offer the dawn prayers in congregation.
Importance of Salah
As Muslims, we all know the importance of Salah (prayer).
And the initiative aimed at making the children fulfil the conditions of the prayer as Islam requires the faithful to pray five times a day.
It encourages children to form the habit of offering prayers, and develop a love for performing Salah.
Teach by Example & Make it Visual
Parents are the primary example to their children.
If the parents prioritize the prayer and the children saw the parent making wudu’ and offering the prayers they like to imitate them.
