Ways Young Muslims can participate in Ramadan

by Ashley Burke

Adolescents that have reached puberty are encouraged to take part in Ramadan traditions such as prayer and fasting. Younger children can still celebrate this special event and continue to learn more about it even though they are not fasting with the others. In this post I want to suggest a few ways that young Muslims can participate in Ramadan without fasting:

Create educational games that teach about Islam
Games are a great way to make religious education and instruction enjoyable. Accumulate a listing of questions and answers about Islam and have the children memorize the answers. Then create various games using the questions and answers. As older family members enjoy sharing their knowledge with the younger children, and younger children desire to demonstrate what they have learned, a positive anchor is developed and the children begin to enjoy the process of learning about Islam.
