Race To Prayer: Sulaiman's Rewarding Day, winner of The Muslim Writers Award For Best Children's Story in 2008, is an exciting story for children about a young Muslim boy who wants to have fun at the quad bike races.
Something always stops Sulaiman from having fun. First it’s Duhr prayer, then it’s the rain and then the car breaks down just as he is leaving to watch the quad bike races. He eventually gets to the races but then Asr prayer time comes around. When he is finally ready to settle back into his seat, something dramatic happens whereby he learns the importance and blessings of praying his prayers in their fixed stated times.
This is an action most dearest to Allah and worthy of gaining a place in Paradise as it is narrated from 'Abdullah Ibn Mas'ood (RA):
"I asked the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhe Wassalam): 'Which deed is the dearest to Allah?' He replied; 'To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times ....' " [Saheeh Al-Bukhari]
Find out how Sulaiman soon realises the blessings of a perfectly-timed prayer.
