Effective Exam Tips for Parents and Learners: Part 5

For Parents – Help them create a connection with Allah
As parents, we need to take every opportunity possible to encourage our children to turn to Allah. The exams are a great time to encourage this since it is a time when our kids might feel pressurized and they might feel as if they need all the help they can get. There are various ways by which we can encourage them to turn to Allah and build a connection…

Make Salaah their pegs
Time management is key to studying in the most effective way for exams. While every child is unique in how, where, and when they study, it's best to help your kid build a schedule that works around essential tasks. Most important among these is the five daily Salaah.

For example, many students prefer studying through the night. If your kid is one of them, then instead of advising them to start after supper, rather advise them to start after Esha. Alternatively, if your kid is more of a morning person, advise them to get up early for Fajr and start studying straight after Fajr. Explain to them that starting off a study session or ending off a study session with Salaah will definitely attract the help of Allah.

Teach them Dua before, during, and after
This is one of the most effective ways for your child to build a friendship with Allah during the exam period. Besides the general Dua on the Musalla after Salaah, teach them to speak to Allah at all times. Sitting on a Musalla is not a prerequisite for Dua. Advise them to speak to Allah before they open their books to study and before they receive the paper in the exam room. Even during the exam, if they cannot recall an answer tell them to ask Allah silently. After the paper, ask them if they thanked Allah for making it easy. Remember, it's not only about the exams. If they make this a habit, they will keep this friendship and wherever they go in life, they will always know that Allah is with them. This is the main thing. read more
