The prayer is the 2nd pillar in Islam so it's most important that you teach your children about it. But for children under 7 years of age, when they have not yet reached the age of discernment, any formal teaching is not encouraged. Instead learning about praying for this age group should be made fun. This is where My Activity Book about Praying is useful.
The 10 activities in this little book is to introduce your children to praying. There is a wordsearch, tracing, colouring, matching and even a tracker. Remember to use these as a fun activity to help with learning.
