Q.): How should we discipline our child if he is not praying?

A.)  Kindly find below answer to your query by Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb of Isipingo Beach

"Handle it the same way just as you get the child to be punctual in his school work and his attendance at school. Whatever approaches and methods are used to ensure he attends and he does not involve himself in mischief where he would hurt others, like damaging property etc, you should use the same method of disciplining him in order to get him to be punctual in salat."

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
