|Tips for Fajr|
Here are some tips to help get your children up for Fajr (and yourself!):|
1. Establish a wake up calling system
This can work for adults too, but especially teenagers. Get your kids to call up their friends to wake them up for Fajr and vice-versa. This will serve as positive peer pressure, and will feel less like mom or dad are nagging them to get up.
2. Get them to bed early
Never underestimate the power of a good night’s rest. Parents can do more in this area than just setting a specific bedtime and enforcing it. They must also go to bed early and not waste time on late night TV or just lounging around. This way, the whole family is in synch and has a regular schedule.
3. Attach Fajr with a privilege
That means, for instance, that if a childmisses Fajr, he will not be allowed to go over to his friend’s place later that day.
4. Avoid rewarding them for Fajr
It is possible they will stop reading if there is no reward. We want to move from expecting only a reward to loving Allah.
5. Get them all alarm clocks
Buy them a nice alarm clock with Adhan. Not only will this be attractive but they will also wake up hearing the call to prayer.
