Smart Interactive Prayer Mats are a new innovation in the world of Islamic Educational products. For many people in the world, learning to pray can be a challenging experience, especially for reverts finding their way back to the faith.
Traditionally, people have learned by watching or reading, but new technology allows us to create educational tools that make learning engaging, interactive, and fast.
One of the most common questions is how to use our Patented Smart Interactive Prayer Mat. In this post, we’re going to explain everything you’ll need to know - from the features of our interactive mat, to how you can use it each day to learn to pray.
Why Use An Interactive Prayer Mat?
Prayer is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. It is a duty all followers of the faith must fulfill, but it is also a way to enhance yourself both spiritually and physically. Prayer allows you to reset your mind and connect with Allah (SWT), purifying your spirit and creating a lasting connection to your faith.
However, for someone new to the faith, it can be difficult to learn Salah. This is why we created the My Salah Mat - the world’s first smart interactive prayer mat. With touch-sensitive keys, audio recitations, and an intuitive design, it has been created to guide you through the prayer process and help to make Salah a part of your life.
How Does The Interactive Prayer Mat Work?
The My Salah Mat Smart Interactive Prayer Mat uses touch-sensitive technology to teach the entire prayer process. In the following sections, we’re going to look at the main features of the adults & reverts version of the My Salah Mat and show you how it works in detail.
Teaching You Each Prayer
The prayer mat includes 25 touch-sensitive keys that are there to guide you through many different prayers. When you touch them, the sound is revealed. They allow you to learn Surahs, Adhan, Salah, Duas, and more. The ‘Select Prayer’ button, allows you to start your prayer. From here, the prayer will only begin when you stand on the feet position.
You will then be guided through the whole prayer by the mat, and different positions will light up at the right time, showing you the position you’ll need to go to at the right moment.
The prayer mat is guided by touch-sensitive technology. For example, what you say in sujood will not begin until you touch that part of the prayer mat with your head. When you touch the right position, the mat recognises you are in sujood and it will begin to recite the sujood dua.
How To Use The My Salah Mat Smart Interactive Prayer Mat
In this section, we’re going to give you a step-by-step guide on how to use the prayer mat.
Step 1 - Unfold the prayer mat and fix any creases with your hands. By ensuring that the mat is completely flat, you will make sure the prayer goes smoothly.
Step 2 - Make sure you face the Qibla (the direction where the Ka’ba is according to your location) then make the intention for Salah.
Step 3 - Select the prayer that you wish to pray by pressing the “Select Prayer” button.
Step 4 - Stand with both of your feet on the feet pads and begin the prayer. Other keys will then be disabled, so your prayer can’t be interrupted.
Step 5 - Follow the guidance of the mat, watching what positions light up.
Step 6 - If you want to change to a different prayer once you’re done, use the select prayer key.
