As Maise Carter stated: “Ramadan is a great time to involve children in the beliefs, blessings, and opportunities during this auspicious time. Even if they are not old enough to fast, you can still teach them about why we celebrate this month and involve them in other ways. The best way to approach this is to reveal the purpose of Ramadan from an early age. This way your child will know the importance of the actions completed during Ramadan and be motivated to achieve it themselves when the time does come. It is also a great idea to teach them by involving their emotions. When a child is emotionally invested in an activity, their motivation to complete it is much higher.
Ramadan is the month of giving. It’s important to teach your children the importance of charity and providing donations in order to feed the hungry during Ramadan. It is also equally important to show them that all good deeds – no matter how big or small – are seen and rewarded by Allah (SWT). Any deed in Islam that benefits someone or something else is a good deed. Remind your children that doing these deeds during Ramadan is a great way of showing appreciation for all that they have and compassion for those that do not have so much.
A great game to create is one which requires your children to do one good deed every day. It’s something your child can get involved in, even if they are not fasting, which will give them a huge sense of importance. Give them a challenge that they have to do one good deed every single day and make it into a game. Everyone in the family has to do one, and you all act out your good deed every evening together during the month of Ramadan. Ensure you commend them and get excited about their good deeds, as children catch onto your enthusiasm and if your showing passion about what they’ve done, they will become all the more excited to share it with you.”
