Mysteries of Prayer for Children





Textbook, workbook and curriculum in a single volume


The children’s version of Mysteries of Prayer (from the Ihya Ulum al-Din) strives to show that the canonic prayer (al-salat), which in addition to being one of the Five Pillars of the religion, is first and foremost an opportunity for communion with the Divinity, for focusing and concentration, and for expressing gratitude to God through words, physical postures, and inward state.
