Salah, or salat, is the Arabic word for prayer. In Islam, Muslims are required to pray 5 times a day, pointing thier prayer rug towards the kaab’a in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
When teaching children how to pray, it’s sometimes easier for them to get into the habit if they have a chart. Eiman Sunbulli, a young Muslimah mom in one of my Facebook groups has put together a salah chart for a party she recently hosted. The party was a celebration of her daughter praying her Maghrib prayer every day for 40 days.
At the party she chose another prayer to commit to. It was fun and festive with games, a cake with a young girl performing her salah on it, and a congregational prayer. Girls received goody bags in addition to salah charts (with an explanation of the importance of prayer and some motivation).
As an added bonus, Sister Sunbulli also made charts for some teen girls.
Jazak Allah khair Sister Sunbulli for sharing!
