Muslim Moment #11
Although I think its really cute when kids do that, in reality its not because it distracts us from focusing on Allah swt. When it's time to pray we should do our best to get away from any and all distractions, even our children. I was watching a Nouman Ali Khan video once and he brought up an instance where he was praying and during that time, his son began to take his first steps, but he did not allow him self to get distracted. This is the perfect example of how we should not let our families and children, as well as all the negative things in this world, distract us from our prayers. When it's time for prayer, it is just you and Allah, so use that time wisely and don't allow anything to take you away from that special moment you share with Him.
