By ISWM / 18 Feb 2013

This makes the child’s heart attached to the greatest educational institutions in the Muslim society, imbuing the child with love for the masjid. Thus, the parent should edify his child on the virtue of the congregational prayer and that it is twenty-seven times better than the prayers offered alone, and make him love the masjid by trying to please him, for example, whenever you go to the masjid; you may take a trip or go shopping before or after going to the masjid.
