A RAMADAN ACTIVITY FOR KIDS
I wrote this Ramadan poem many years ago and it has been used in our Part-time and now Full time Islamic school every year since then, it can also be done at home. Last year my daughterís kindergarten teacher in Public school even asked to use it as a cultural activity for the whole class. My children really looked forward to making the chains and hanging them each year, it has become a "Ramadan" tradition in our family.
A RAMADAN POEM
THE HOLY MONTH OF RAMADAN
FOR ALL MUSLIMS HAS BEGUN.
PRAISING ALLAH THROUGH THE DAY,
FROM DAWN TO DUSK WE FAST AND PRAY.
WE PAY ZAKAH (CHARITY) FOR THOSE IN NEED,
TRYING HARD TO DO GOOD DEEDS.
WHEN THE SUN HAS SET, AND DAY IS DONE-
IíLL BREAK THIS CHAIN, BUT ONLY ONE.
BY THE END OF RAMADAN, THIS WHOLE CHAIN WILL BE ALL GONE!
ITíS TIME FOR EID AND LOTS OF FUN!!!
