6 things to tell your kids about Ramadan
- What is Fasting?
Fasting is one of the most important duties of Ramadan. Fasting is made compulsory for every healthy adult and such people shouldn’t skip the fasting. One has to refrain himself from eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset as well as to stay away from all sorts of sins and bad deeds while fasting, and even after that.
- Reward of Prayers Increased by 70%
In Ramadan, the reward for all kinds of prayers (Dua, Salah, etc.) is increased by 70 percent. Thus, there is no reason to skip even a single prayer and those who don’t earn a great amount of reward in this month are indeed unfortunate.
- Lailatul Qadr (The Night of blessings)
Lailat-ul-Qadr, which is also known as the Night of blessings also comes in the very month of Ramadan. It is said that this night is more significant than a thousand months which is why Muslim pray extensively on this night. Doing so can lead to salvation on the Day of resurrection.
- Importance of Charity in Islam
Children should be taught in their early childhood that charity giving is highly encouraged in Islam. All of us who are financially stable, or even if not but can give child charities every once in a while, should provide aid to our Muslim brothers. We can provide financial help to the helpless or physical aid depending on the circumstances.
- The Month of Quran
Ramadan is the very month when Allah (SWT) revealed the Quran on Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). This increases the significance of this month and makes it the month to recite Quran in abundance.
- Eid ul-Fitr (The Festival of Breaking the Fast)
Eid ul-Fitr is the festival of breaking the fast. This holiday celebrates the conclusion of the twenty-nine or thirty days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. Muslims celebrate Eid ul-Fitr for three days and then get back to their normal routines.
