How to make your children pray on their own without quarrel or a reminder:

My Daughter was 12 years old and prayer was like heavy burden on her , So I told her to pray one day and I monitored her. She took the carpet  and threw it  on the ground. I asked her have you prayed - she said yes - Believe me, without feeling I slapped her face  - I know I made a mistake.    The situation has troubled me and I cried and I repent to God to forgive me   The slap, the talk , the reminders did not benefit with my child.    

One day A friend told me told me story.  She went to one of her friends for a visit. Her friend was not that of a religious person, but when the Adhan prayer was called, her children rushed for prayers without reminders or quarrel.     I said to her how does your children pray on themselves without quarrel or a reminder? !!!!!  -   She said I have nothing to tell you, but before I got married I supplicate  this Dua and until today .    

After she advised me the supplication Dua I began to recite it in every Sujud in my  prayers before Tasleem and anytime I could .     My Sisters and Brothers  since I began to recite the supplication Dua my daughter is now the first to prayer without reminders or quarrels . She got up in Fajr prayers without any  alarms.  And all her brothers are now eager in praying without any difficulties.     Even my mother visited me once and went to sleep and I have to draw the attention to my daughter to wake us up.    

I know You are now eager to know this Supplication Dua ..  

The Supplication is in the Surae Ibrahim(14), ayah # 40   

 And Supplication is ... 

رَبِّ ٱجۡعَلۡنِى مُقِيمَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِى‌ۚ رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلۡ دُعَآءِ (٤٠)

 14:40] O my Lord! make me one who establishes regular Prayer, and also (raise such) among my offspring  "O our Lord! and accept Thou my Prayer".   

Please recite this supplication in qunuut and sajda of every wajib salaat, in both sujud of every rakaat, once you have recited the zikr for sajda, say:  "Subhana rabbi al aala wabi hamde-rabbij alani muqeemas salaati, wa min zurriyyati, rabbana wataqabbal duaa" 

Start today, do not wait until you get married and until you have kids-"prevention is better then cure"

 
Saying of Imam Ali (a.s.) "Best deed of a man is to forgive and forget."
O my Allah, the honour of being Your servant is sufficient.
I am proud of the fact that You are my Lord.
You are just as I want, so make me just as You like me to be.
الهي كفى بي عزّا أن أكون لك عبدا ، وكفى بي فخرا أن تكون لي ربّا... أنت كما أُحبُّ ،  فاجعلني كما تحبُّ

** GRATITUDE IS AN ATTITUDE
THAT GIVES ONE ALTITUDE. **

"Apologizing does not mean that you are wrong and the other one is right...
It simply means that you value the relationship much more than your ego ."

Let conscience be your guide...
