My Salah Mat is a prayer mat designed to educate children on how to perform the Muslim prayer in a fun and enjoyable way. The interactive prayer mat is touch sensitive and has pre-recorded keys that can be touched to reveal the sound, such as prayer times, how to do wudu, recite surahs, say duas, and much more. It can teach about the different times of salah, and the various bodily movements and positions, and what to say during them. In order to make the learning process easy, My Salah Mat will guide the user through two rakat of salah using a simple to understand format.
The touch sensitive pads enable the prayer mat to recognise and respond to the specific prayer positions. For example, when someone places both feet on the feet location on the prayer mat, the sensors in My Salah Mat recognise the pressure, and the first action of the Muslim prayer is heard (Allahu Akbar), followed by Surah Fatiha. Then when the knees, hands, and head touch the relevant locations on the mat, the sound related to that part of the prayer is heard. This continues through all of the actions of the Muslim prayer (please refer to the diagram for more information).
Teaching children how to perform salah (the Muslim prayer) can be a struggle, as there are various movements and positions to learn, along with the correct words and recitations to say, and this can be difficult for young children. Therefore, My Salah Mat makes it fun, easy and interactive, encouraging children to perform their prayers.
The problem this prayer solves is that of updating the methods used to teach salah to children. It is more current and in line with the learning styles of today's smartphone and tablet generation. This means it should encourage children and enable them to learn quicker and with more success than traditional methods. Children learn more easily through visual aids that are kinesthetic, and they can interact with this, the first ever Muslim prayer mat of its kind. The new tools that My Salah Mat provides will enable children and new Muslims to learn how to perform the Muslim prayer in an easy and accurate way.
My Salah Mat is a new and innovative prayer mat because there are no other Muslim prayer mats available on the market that have been developed to specifically teach children to perform the Muslim prayer in this way. My Salah Mat includes touch sensitive technology, which no other prayer mats have. It takes the Muslim Prayer mat and completely transforms it into something that is interactive.
Give them My Salah Mat and gain the reward for teaching salah, inshaAllah.

Happy with the product but just it creases a lot. Is there any way to avoid that?
Overall it was a good experience.
Just a pity that you cannot select the waqt and it would complete the required amount of rakaats for that particular prayer.
It would also be nice if one could select the short Surah to recite as it just recites the same 2 over and over.
Absolutely love this purchase. Perfect for children learning to read namaaz as well as basic suraahs and wudhu etc.
Service from Deen District was excellent. Each musallah came individually wrapped and ribboned, ready to gift
The item was the same as the picture. Normally when you buy mats they usually come smaller than what you expect. Not on this case. It was bigger than l expected. As usual I was happy with the speedy delivery.
It is very clear in pronunciation, it does require parent supervision in what needs to be done next. With my five year struggled with touch points to activate next recitation especially in sujood. Overall my kids felt much more confident n excited in making salah.
