As a Muslim Mom, I find it tough to bring up my children with Islamic values in a non-Muslim country. Growing up in Pakistan, we never had to make any special efforts to mark our religious occasions like Eid or Ramadhan. After moving to the US and having my daughters, I started putting my education to use at home. I started decorating my house for Eids and doing small craft activities about Islam to engage with my children and help them understand Islam easily and in a fun way. May Allah keep all our kids on the right path. Ameen.
This easy DIY Salat Time Chart is the perfect craft to keep your little ones busy, teach them about Islam and the second pillar of our faith. More than just a crafting activity, it strengthens quality family bonding time as you talk your children through the process, guide them into making the chart and instill in them the significance of all the prayers and their timings.
