Ramadan is a month of blessings and rewards for Muslims all over the world. As parents, we want our children to participate in the good deeds of this blessed month and earn rewards for their efforts. To make it more engaging and fun for kids, we can assign daily activities that they need to complete to earn their Ramadan points. These points can only be earned by completing various activities during the month of Ramadan. Here are some daily activities that you can assign to your children:
Quranic recitation is an essential part of Ramadan. Encourage your children to recite a few verses from the Quran every day. You can provide them with a small section of the Quran to recite each day or assign them a specific surah to memorize throughout the month.
Acts of Kindness
Ramadan is a time for compassion, forgiveness, and kindness.
Assign your child an act of kindness to perform every day. It could be something as simple as helping a family member with a task or sharing their food with a friend.
Engaging in creative activities is a fun way for children to learn about Islam and express their creativity. Assign your child a crafting activity to complete every day. For example, you can ask them to create an imaginative drawing of Jannah ( Paradise ) on a paper, make Ramadan – themed decorations, or create their own Eid greeting cards.
Giving charity is an important aspect of Ramadan. Encourage your child to give a small amount of money or donate some of their toys or clothes to a charitable organization or a person in need.
Learning about Islam is an essential part of our faith. Assign your child a topic to learn about every day. It could be a new Islamic concept, a story from the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), or a moral lesson from the Quran.
Praying five times a day is obligatory for Muslims. Encourage your child to pray with you every day and assign them a specific prayer to learn throughout the month.
Encourage your child to reflect on their day and write down something that they are grateful for, something they did well, and something they can improve on.
Spend quality time with your child every day, whether it’s by reading a story together, playing a game, or simply having a conversation. This will help strengthen your bond and create positive memories.
Assigning daily activities to your child will not only help them earn Ramadan points but also help them develop a stronger connection with their faith. It will also help them understand the importance of good deeds, kindness, and compassion. As parents, it is our responsibility to instil Islamic values in our children and make the most of this blessed month.
