What an awesome idea! I have to admit, I’m torn on the whole Trick or Treating… I don’t think it’s as sinister as made out to be sometimes, and like someone recently told me, if it’s not haraam, then why do we make it so? This is one thing that will make it more palatable for sure!
This is SUCH a good idea! We tried it at home over the first 10 days of Zilhajj (leading to Eid-ul-Adha) and the kids loved it 🙂
Planning on having an iftaar party for your children? Here are some ideas to get you going!
- Take them shopping for charity!
I loved this idea done by a clever mum – “Invite them home a little early and pop into the closest supermarket and give them some money, then ask them to buy some food for charity! Make it a challenge to make it even more exciting: Who can get the most items out of the designated £5? Who can spend the closest to £5? What kinds of food do you think would be most appreciated?”
So many lessons to learn! And so fitting for this month!
- Another idea was to give out an empty box and a Ramadan Giving Calendar (see: http://www.buzzideazz.com/ramadan-giving-calendar/) as a party favour to encourage children to give charity during the month.
Have you held iftaar parties? Would love to hear what you do in them!
I was sent this awesome idea and am sharing it with you…
To mark the birthday of this generous man, why not follow in his footsteps and take some food with your children to a food bank near you. Imam used to make every effort to feed those who had no food, often giving away the little he and his family had!
