Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, my beloved children, today, I want to speak about the five daily prayers, you know that we as Muslims have to pray five times a day. Now some of you might be three years old, five years old, six years old, some might be seven, eight. So up to the age of seven, like between three and seven, you need to know something.
It may not be compulsory on you to pray. But at the same time, it's a bonus, we have to get used to it. So you see your parents pray, just be there with them, Mashallah just be there with them. Like we said in a previous episode about the fasting, that it's not compulsory when you're a child, but you get up in the morning and you want to eat with everyone, because it's the environment, it's the ambience, ambience, meaning, what it feels like a good feeling, you know. And so, when the others are praying, just join them, just stand there Subhanallah and follow them, whatever they're doing, even if you don't know the words, you don't know what to say, but you're going to get used to it.
And as you grow older, 2456 you are going to be knowing what to say, what times to pray, how to clean yourself and wash yourself before you pray, and then you'll be able to pray five times a day, inshallah, by the time you get to seven, then it becomes a little bit more serious. And then you have to try and make it there. And when it gets when you get to 10 years old, then you should be praying by that time in sha Allah. If you're still weak,
you can make an effort This is Ramadan, you can make an effort to start off with you can just make your photo of Salah you know for us means that which is compulsory. So you have federal law, also Maghreb and Asia, you can actually pray the two for federal the fall for lower the fall for us, the three for Margaret and the fall for Asia, and Subhanallah, you can add the three witches to that you can find out from your folks, if you don't know exactly what I meant, they will explain to you. So what you should be doing is fulfill these prayers. As you grow older, become more regular and fulfill all of them. When you're young, you might fulfill one or two because you're only four years
old or five years old. And as you grow a little bit older, Mashallah at about a color you find that you will be interested in it. I'm sure your father, your mother, or the people you live with, or your brothers and sisters, if you have those relatives, if you have those people in your family, if you don't, then whoever you're living with, I'm sure they would be so keen on fulfilling the five daily prayers when you see them. Try and join them at the beginning. And if they don't pray, maybe you want to remind them to say, Dad, you're supposed to be praying, I just heard the event. I just heard the event and it's time for you to pray. And then that should feel guilty that my own child is
telling me to pray Subhanallah so don't worry, it's a good day. It's a nice reminder. So Alhamdulillah I pray that Allah strengthens all our children. And I pray that all of you can at some point, become very regular with Salah. Remember, when you get used to something from an early age, you don't feel that it's a burden. That's why I'm trying to speak to you when you're young. This is a children's program to tell you let's get used to the right things inshallah. Slowly It's so beautiful because do you know the first thing that Allah will ask you about when you go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala is your Salah your prayer, and if that was in order, everything else is
going to be so easy. That's what the prophet Muhammad Salah Selim says, if that's not in order, might be a little bit difficult for the other things as well. So try and get your Salah in order. That's why we give so much emphasis for Salah people say Why do I have to pray but Allah gave you a heartbeat Allah gave you your breathing Allah gave you your eyes, your nose, Allah gave you your limbs and your health and your your wealth and your clothing and whatever else Allah gave your parents to all that is from Allah. So Allah says Allah if I allowed you to see the next time of the prayer, you have to pray. So just pray and there will come a time when you don't only stick to that
which is compulsory, but you add what's called a sooner voluntary from your own heart. I want to pray more. Allah told me just to pray to units I want to pray another two which is a sooner I want to pray for example, vor salata, Lord, I want to add to that are nephila for example and things like that, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah strengthen all of us. Remember this is the month of Ramadan we pray Tara we in the evening A lot of it, you as a child, you may not have to do all of that, but do whatever you can inshallah, two units, four units, they're called recart. So to record for a cat, whatever you can inshallah, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah bless all our children. Remember my
brothers and sisters.
As this is a children's program, so we will speak to the children and we will just encourage them inshallah, to start practicing upon that which will be beneficial for them later on Apollo coleoptera was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah here, but I get
