Prayers - How to Encourage Adult Children
  • Question:

    I am a widow. I have tried in many ways to encourage my 23 year old son to pray the compulsory prayers, which he refuses to do so. Please suggest what can I do for him?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    I suggest you encourage your son by expounding on the benefits of prayer. Also take him to environments where he may be exposed to prayer, practice of religion and people of his age who are practicing.

    You may choose to get married to a righteous husband who could be a positive male role model to your son as well.

    And Allah knows best.
