Encouraging step-children to perform salaah

Q: I got two step sons. If I tell them it's time to pray then they get upset but they pray. If I don't tell them then they don't pray by themselves. If I chase them every time then my husband says to me to let them do the rest some other time because they are tired. What should I do? They are 11 and 14 years old.

A: Just gently get them up and make dua for them. See that you have regular taleem.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
