Fasting in Ramadan: Lessons & Moralities
Another short read, but to the point and beneficial, insha Allah. “The test of success of this month (Ramadan) lies in the effects it has left upon us: discipline, renewal of devotional life, renewal of contact with Quraan, renewal of identity with the ummah, a fresh sense of care and sympathy, jihad or struggle, and taqwa…………….
Discussion/After Reading Activities:
Define, tell part of speech, and use in sentence all in accordance with how it is used in the readin
discipline, mundane, injunctions, renewal, sympathy, virtues, scheme
3. Journal Activities
1. Using the 7 criteria for measuring success of Ramadan (as per the article), rate your before Ramadan, your Ramadan, and then, after Ramadan is over (or review last Ramadan). Ratings (or your own): 5-Excellent; 4-Good; 3-Ok; 2-Not so great; 1-Not good at all. You may want to make this a yearly activity.
2. Why did you rate yourself as you did? That is, speak to your discipline, how disciplined (and in what ways) were you before, after, and during Ramadan, and the other 6 criteria. Give details to illustrate your rating. You may find that you revise your rating.
Make a sheet to stay in your journal to keep from year to year, insha Allah to rate yourself. Use your ratings/findings, along with the help of Allah to strive to improve.
Make a daily checklist of the criteria, and at the end of the day, rate how you think you did. Make some notes as to how you can make tomorrow better, if Allah wills.
Well, maybe not so much of a craft, but an excellent little quickie worksheetless activity. Over at the Making Memories blog, a sister has come up with a delightful little lapbook fanbook template. Its excellent review for reasons why Ramadan is special, and then has blank templates for students to record why Ramadan is special to them.
When we lived in Yemen and passed the sweets section of many stores, we would always see these orange sweets. For almost the entire time we lived there, I never knew the name of them until before this Ramadan (though they may actually call them something else there)…..Jalebis
Festivals.iloveindia.com has a recipe for jalebis as well as a little background information on them……………….
In addition, over at the TJRamadan site, there are a few more recipe links for jalebis
