Ramadan Lesson Discussion

Explain that Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims around the world. It is a special month because Allah revealed the Quran in this month.

Discuss the lunar calendar and how it determines the start and end dates of Ramadan.

Explain that during Ramadan, Muslims fast, which means they abstain from food and drink during daylight hours. Muslims also try and stay away from doing bad deeds. Discuss the importance of self-control, patience, and empathy during the fast.

Explain that children are not required to fast until they are older, but can still participate in other aspects of Ramadan. Also they can join in by fasting for half a day or even try a full day and see how it goes!

Use the visual aids to illustrate the different activities that take place during Ramadan such as prayer, charity, and family gatherings. Explain how Allah gives extra reward for good deeds in ramadan.
