Solat is an obligation for Muslims. It's important to teach a small kid like me to perform it the right way so that it won't be a burden in the future. Muslim parents are to order their children when they are seven years old to perform it, but if the children have reached ten years old without observing Solat, their parents are to beat them for that. Beating in that case is to be with the hand, not a harmful instrument.
There is a Hadith to that effect: "Order your children to perform Salah when they are seven years old, and beat them (if they have neglected it) when reaching ten years old. And separate between your male and female children in bed."
|Always bring your child to musolla/ mosque|
|Though they're not paying attention at first...|
|Take time to practice|
