Yusra prays everywhere

رَبِّ اجْعَلْنِي مُقِيمَ الصَّلَاةِ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي رَبَّنَا وَتَقَبَّلْ دُعَاءِ

“O my Lord! Make me one who performs As-Salat, and (also) from my offspring, our Lord! And accept my invocation.”
(14:40)

My little Yusra ‘performs salah’ whenever and wherever. (In the pic, she’s praying in the kitchen on a towel as I cook.) It brings me such happiness. She has always loved praying and loves to copy both her baba and me.

I came across the above dua in Ramadan after talking to friends about our children praying. This dua is perfect as it’s to the point and what we all want to say, and what better way to ask from Allah than to use words from the Quran.

Salah is the link between the believer and his Creator and is part of our daily lives.
