1. Okay so I am going to bookmark this post for future use. My son is too small to go to the mosque at the moment but Insha Allah once he grows old enough, I would definitely want him to go.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Fatima. Do visit the first post in the series. I am sure you’ll love to start that first. 🙂

  2. This has some great advice for mums with boys! I will definately be passing this on to all the mummies with boys that i know 🙂

  3. heheh I love this post! It’s real! Some days bribery/finding a reason to go out/ getting someone to tag along is what needs to be done 🙂

  4. Masha Allah, It’s great that you live in a place where it’s safe to send your boy to the masjid alone or with a buddy. That’s a luxury not available to many in our world today.

    As an educator, I like the points you made about using charts, an accountability partner and also going to different masjids.

    May Allah guide us to making our boys among those who are sincerely attached to the masjid.

  5. Mashallah. Beautiful and honest article. I was reading it for my brother as he avoids masjid and prayers. Hes 24 by the way. Most wont be applicable to him but I was enjoy reading about your experience and tactics so much. ☺ again beautifully written

    1. Thank you Hina. 🙂 Okay here’s a little secret about boys that old. Shame them! 😀 I am still working on my younger brother. When I am home, he FEARS me. 😉

  6. Hahaa, I really like your list. I think you have some great strategies on there. I will definitely be using some when my son is at the age of Salah.

  7. Love your list of ideas. My son is 9 years old. He’S mostly good to go but there are THOSE days which do require some creative thinking!)

  8. Assalamu alaykum

    Jazakillah for the post. My 5 year old refuses to go to the masjid, but the 3 year old joins at every opportunity.

    I’m making dua that it’s just a maturity thing because the 5 year old is very playful.

    1. Walekumassalam Wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,
      5 year old is such a small age MashaAllah. InshaAllah he will learn to enjoy as he grows older. Do you mean going to mosque with you?

  9. I Used to say of you want coffee you and pray Asr Salah in the Masjid and come. Otherwise I’ll give only milk and i won’t mix anything(As he hates to drink milk as raw without adding boost,coffee,tea etc ,) .This will workout for me.
