Reading prayers after studying is one of the things recommended in Islam. The aim is not only to make the learning process easier and more enjoyable, but also to make the knowledge gained useful.
Apart from that, studying is also a form of worship so it is best to start by reading a prayer first.
Quoted from the book Guide to Daily Muslim Children’s Prayer, the word prayer comes from Arabic which means ‘to call’ or ‘ask for help’.

The command to pray is found in the Qur’an and hadiths, one of which is the word of Allah SWT in Surat Al-Baqarah verse 186:
“And when My servants ask you (Muhammad) about Me, then (answer) that I am near. I accept the supplication (of people) who pray when they pray to Me. So let them fulfill (all orders)- Me and let them believe in Me, so that they are always in the truth.”
Before learning what prayer readings are after studying and their meanings, also teach your little one about the etiquette of prayer, namely:
Facing the qibla Reciting hamdalah Reciting istighfar Reciting shalawat With a soft voice and a sense of fear I’m sure it will be fulfilled
Reading prayers when studying
Before starting to study, children also need to be introduced to the recitation of prayers that can be chanted. The prayer that is read when you want to study, citing the book Kumpulan Doa Mustajab Sepangah Hayat by Drs. Nurdin Hasan, is:
I am satisfied with God as Lord, with Islam as religion, and with Muhammad as prophet and messenger. My Lord, expand my breast for me and make my affairs easy for me, and loosen the knot from my tongue so that they may understand my words. My Lord, increase me in knowledge.
Radhitu billahi rabba wabil Islam is the enemy of the wabi wabi muhammadin prophet warsuulaa. The rain of the rohli shadri wa yassirlii amri wahlul ‘uqdatammil lisaan yafqohuu qouli robbii zidnii ilman
“I am pleased with God my God, Islam my religion, and Muhammad my prophet. Oh God, open my chest and make my affairs easy and release the stiffness of my tongue, so that they understand my words, oh God increase my knowledge.”

After the learning process is complete, here are several prayer readings that children can recite and memorize:
