Prayer is a must-do for every Muslim, starting from childhood. There is no denying that there are Muslim families who value prayer and some who are still lazy or do not perform prayers. Some issues were raised regarding the problem of not performing prayers in Muslim families, especially children. Among them is the need to design a special product as a supporter for this group to perform prayer without stress. So, this study explains the development of Islamic-based special product serves as a catalyst for early systematic training of prayer to Muslim children aged 7 to 10 years in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia. Although Terengganu is declared as the first Islamic state in the country, but to this day unfortunately many of the children of the age mentioned above have not performed their prayers properly. This may be due to the factors of laziness to prayer caused by the influence of entertainment from digital devices, the lack of prayer guidance from parents and guardians or the absence of special prayer products in the market. From the point of view of applied research methods, the special Islamic-based product has been produced through innovative design concept in which three essential elements are implanted namely aesthetics, practical and portable, and cultural and manufacturing acceptability. Further, the observation and interview techniques are performed when conducting the pilot tests, henceforth four design processes such as ideation and development, refinement and detailing, digital production and model making stages are used to complement the image of subject matter is well-fitted to the outcome of the study that offers low production costs, uniqueness looks and multipurpose applications. Therefore, the results of this study are in line with religious claims through the Quran and Hadith, besides helping the children to increase their devotion to God as a first step towards becoming a virtuous and responsible person.
