Ramadan Family Fun

Here are some fun ways to create excitement for your kids

by working together on Ramadan activities.

Ramadan Cookies: Bake Ramadan cookies with your kids using a sugar cookie recipe.  Use either a crescent cookie cutter or make a crescent shape by rolling the dough into small circles and cut each circle in half using only half of a circle cookie cutter.  Decorate the cookies with frosting and sprinkles, then package in boxes with fancy ribbon.  These make great Ramadan gifts for friends, family, teachers, and neighbors.  (also try decorating cakes and cupcakes)

Teaching Kids about Isra’ and Meraj

The magnificent night of Isra’ and Meraj is an important part of Islamic faith and history.  Help kids learn about the glorious miracles of this special night and uncover what significance Rasulullah’s journey has on Islam.

Step 1: Research simplified accounts of Isra’ and Meraj that will describe the main events of the journey in a language that is easy for children to understand.

Step 2: Reinforce the main points with an activity.

Be sure your child / student can explain the following questions in their own words:

  1. Who went? and Who did he meet?
  2. What was used as transportation? and What gifts were given to Muslims?
  3. Where were all the places visited?
  4. When did the journey take place?
  5. Why is it a miraculous night?
  6. How long did the entire journey take?

Recommended ISRA’ MERAJ ACTIVITY:

Below is a link to an Isra’ Meraj lapbook posted by a parent on the Muslim Learning Garden Website.  It’s a great activity to help kids reinforce main ideas of the lesson.
