Marking Ramadan with Older Children - Idea 5: Split the recitation of the Quran

Posted:

To try and finish the Quran on your own isn’t easy – but why not split it between your family to try and get it done? With older kids this is quite do-able and even if it doesn’t get done in the month, it can be something that will help maintain the regular recitation of the Quran in the days/weeks after Ramadan.

Here is some advice sent in by a mum on a practical way to do this:

“Each part (para) is 20 pages so we can split into 5 – so by reading 4 pages after each salat, we can finish a part a day (and the whole Quran in 1 month). The 4 pages can be split between the family so for example, if a family of 4 shares it, it would be only 1 page after each salat.”

Marking Ramadan with Older Children - Idea 4: Pay It Forward

Posted:

I loved this idea! I printed 2 each for my kiddos – we don’t frequent drive thru’s so their challenge is to find different ways to pass on the kindness!

“Pay it forward this Ramadan! The next time you’re in a drive-thru buying coffee, ice cream🍦, or other munchie 🌮, tell the cashier you’d like to pay for the car behind you and ask for this slip to be passed over to them when they pull up! Free printable on my website! Print them out and keep them in your car so you’re always ready!” – www.waafiala.com

 

Marking Ramadan with Older Kids - Idea 3: Charity

Posted:

Now that they’re older, the novelty of finding coins in the calendar and popping them in the sadqa box has worn off.

As they tend to have some birthday/pocket money stored away, why not give them the opportunity to truly give charity and give out of their own pockets!

To help them put this line of dua into action – Allahumma ashbi kulli jaa’i, O Allah feed the hungry ones – they can pay £30 and give a family iftaar for a month. That’s only £1 a day!
