Xiyad has surely grown up a lot. Even he's in front of me 24/7, I could still notice the change on his attitudes, abilities to do more things, his moods and his eagerness to do something new. The only bad thing of him growing up is that he fell on his head more often.. (=='). Most of the times were because he was too excited playing, caught off balance and DHUUUKKKK!! His head landed first. I kept praying it will make him more clever ..huhu
One of my habit at home is to pray at the living room. yes. I don't secluded myself out of Xiyad's reach to have a peaceful prayer, but rather letting him see that I'm actually praying. I just want him to familiarize the routine as a Muslim to pray 5 times a day.
And of course, he would come bugging me. Trying to climb on my back when I was performing my sujud, hugging my legs when I was standing still and sit on my lap when I was on my tahiyyat. Sometimes he doesn't want to bulge even after I tried to shove him aside to continue my prayer, I would just carry him on my hands while performing my prayer.
the 'more than 3 moves' that batalkan your solat is referring to 3 irrelevant moves. Putting your child down from your back doesn't count. And you have options to carry your child along your solat too. And if I'm not mistaken, you can continue your solat while sitting in tahiyyat pose if it's really hard to hold your child while praying. The last option, I'm still googling more about the hukum.
When Xiyad's getting bigger and maybe my exposure of bringing him to the surau, he's becoming less and less interrupting my prayer. The worse he would do now is lying on his chest like how I doodled above and I just have to shift my sujud spot.
It looks like saja-saja baring, but Xiyad was actually trying to imitate the sujud. Alhamdulillah. I reckon that he is now starting to put his knees on and lying his head on the sejadah. But he couldn't do it so he just lie down like that. Hehehe..comel.
I've brought him to surau around 5 times. 3 different surau. The one at my place, at my in-law's and at my parents'. Alhamdulillah I could perform my prayer till the end without him crying or making a fuss. At my in-law's, he would stand still outside of the praying hall (I took the side-most saf). Couple of times he would try to walk into the hall, but he stopped. When I called him to come at me after I finished my prayer, he still hesitated and stand put. =]
Hoping for a better quality time with Xiyad in the future and hoping he would understand that during solat, he needs to keep still and not interrupting anyone.
