In terms of general upbringing (tarbiya), parents should encourage and praise their children to pray from a young age. This, like many great and moral behaviors, is made simpler if parents pray regularly at home, as children love to imitate.
Allah has entrusted us with the upbringing of His creations. And it is the primary responsibility of parents to teach their children what the Almighty has asked each of His servants to do. Children as young as 3 to 6 years of age are frequently forced to begin the daily required prayer in our communities, and if they reject or fail to do so, they are severely punished. So, what is the appropriate age for our children to begin praying?
Teaching a child from a very early age is good because it wi help the child know more about Islam and why he or she should do, and what not to do.
