As we all go about our homeschool journeys it’s amazing to see the diverse ways in which we homeschool in our families. But there are certain things we want to establish in our homes and lives that we all have in common, and one of the most important is salaah.
Salaah is such an integral part of our lives, it is our doorway to success, it is our peace when things are difficult, it is the part of our day where we are able to put aside our day to day affairs and have a conversation with Allah Azzawajal. SubhanAllah for this gift, a gift we are then responsible for giving to our children.
Many of us make the mistake of delaying teaching salaah to our kids, but rather it should be the opposite! We should be eager to share this beautiful gift and enhance our children’s lives, allowing them to be amongst the fortunate ones who established salaah from a young age.
In our homeschool, I have been using Sheikh Al Albaanee’s book, the abridgement version of the Prophet’s prayer described. I do also have the full book, and I will be using that alongside a workbook that I will be starting with the kids in a couple of weeks inshaAllah.
It has been a great resource for explaining the conditions of salaah, what to say in each stage of salaah, elaborating on the positions of salaah and much more. Alhamdulillah, it has been invaluable and I definitely recommend it. It can be found easily online, I downloaded a copy and then printed and spiral bound it as I’m sure we will be continuously referring to it especially as the kids get older.
