Happy spring! Adhan Practice and Importance

Happy spring...enjoy the weather and feel the breeze!

Alhumdulillah for being able to live in a Muslim country. Alhumdulillah for the great weather. we keep the windows open in our house, at every Salah time we can hear the adhan and the jamma'ah. Its such a blessing because the kids notice it and try to imitate it, and once the Adhan is done they actually pray! AR goes to make wudu and since H is at an imitating age, so whenever she sees me praying she runs to get her pray-mat to pray as well. MashaAllah, its amazing.

So today I decided that from now on I will be doing the following to to encourage their behavior and interest inshaAllah.

  1. Try to leave everything and sit down to listen to the Adhan and reply to it together
  2. Say the after Adhan supplication together and make a small dua after that (I will also discuss with AR the excellence of making dua after the adhan and how dua is readily accepted after Adhan with ahadeeth) 
  3. Help AR memorize the Adhan (inshaAllah).
  4. Sing the wudu nasheed "This is the way we do Wudu" (Will post it inshaAllah)
  5. Use the Learning roots "What's next?" cards to teach and focus on one step per two days.
  6. We are already doing the times  and rakkaat of Salah now I will also try to point at Salah we are listening to. e.g: (pointing at maghrib) "its maghrib time, come lets listen to the Adhan and make dua"
NOTE: I will be updating this post inshaAllah!
