Practicing Du'a

Sometimes despite learning a particular du'a or a surah that you know is a sunnah to be read at certain time, we become slack in practicing it. Now and then, we are reminded, then we practice it, at some other time we leave it. Now that I don't really spend my time with the kids before sleeping, i have to remind them about the three quls and all that. But I myself slack in reading the Baqarah and al Mulk each night. :\ I would usually be the one to wake the kids up in the morning. And because Jack is the baby, I do spend a bit of time waking him up. Usually this is what I do, call everyone. Shake Haziq. Knock on Sy'a door loudly (she is always locking the door) then call jack's name last. After a while I would call Jack again until finally I will sit on his bed. When he is halfway waking up, I would say to him, "Jack Alhamdulillah..?" to prompt him to continue. If he doesn't respond, I will repeat until he does continue Alhamdulillahilladzi ahyana ba'dama amatana wa ilahin nushur.

Eyes still closed. But baby voice tu yang mahal tu. Then I will ask him to get up properly. Try it. perhaps it is one way that we will be istiqamah in reading our daily du'a and help the children to start their day with good words too. Insya Allah.

Ohhh thank you for this reminder post. I am struggling with this myself. It was easier during the taska days because the kids practice reciting du'a(s) for most of the things they do, so it becomes a good habit at home too. Nowadays, kalau tak remind, highly likely tak buat. Who can blame them? We adults pun kekadang lupa. *blush*
I am trying to introduce simple du'a(s) to Nuaym. May Allah make it easy for me to teach him. :)
