- On the use of technology, here’s what one mum shared:
“Texting is replacing talking among teens. Teens spend nearly an equal amount of time talking as they do texting each month. The feature is so important to them that if texting were no longer an option 47% of teens say their social life would end or be worsened.
They also say texting has advantages over talking because it offers more options, including multitasking, speed, the option to avoid verbal communication, and because it is fun – in that order, according to the study.
So text your teen when it’s time to pray. Encourage them to set up reminders on their cell phone to offer their prayer or download an app for this purpose. This will make it more fun and help weave prayer into their lives in a practical way.”
- There are also many apps that are helpful in tracking salaah, helping us wake up for salaah, understanding salaah, etc. I will not be mentioning specific ones as they are constantly being updated and changing, but would be good to have a quick search and try some out!
