As Salaat al Merajul Mumin 5 comments


Here is a simple buoyancy experiment that is fun to do, helps illustrate and inshA ingrain the concept/Hadith of our H.Prophet (SAWW): “As Salaat al Merajul Mu’min” – Salaah helps a Mu’min rise to great heights in all aspects of life.

 

Items you’ll need:

– A tall clear tumbler, one wide enough to accommodate an egg
– An egg
– Sharpie or permanent markers
– Five small containers
– Stickers or to label the containers
– Chopstick or skewer to stir
– water
– 17 tsps of salt

 

How to do:

1. Start by asking kids to identify each Salaah, time of Salaah and the number of rakaats

2. Label each container with a Salaat e.g Fajr, Zohr, Asr etc

3. Get kids to measure out one tsp of salt for each rakaat in each container. In the image below I was working on strengthening fine grip so I asked them to clip little pegs for rakaats on each container

4. Get kids to draw a face or a person with a name on the egg eith a permanent marker (the narrow end of the egg floats at the top while the wider end is at the bottom – we should’ve drawn the person upside down)¬†

5. Fill 3/4 of the tumbler with water

6. Plop the egg into the tumbler and watch. The egg will sink

7. Explain that this girl/boy didn’t pray Salaah hence he sank

8. Now start adding the containers (Salaah) into the girl/boy’s day one by one, stirring after each one

9. Get kids to watch closely what is happening to the egg

10. The egg starts to rise and float

 

Conclusion:

After adding Salaah to our day, we can rise high above and be a floater : )
