It’s finally here! We’ve been eagerly awaiting this blessed month.
Ramadan is a holy month in the Islamic calendar, where Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset for 30 days. For Muslim children, this is an important time of the year, as they learn about the significance of Ramadan and participate in its practices.
Ramadan is an occasion for spiritual reflection, community building, and acts of charity. We encourage our children to increase their prayers and recitation of the Quran. During this month, we also hold special assemblies and workshops to educate pupils about Ramadan and its importance.
In addition to the religious aspect, Ramadan also promotes values such as empathy, compassion, and social responsibility. Pupils are encouraged to show kindness and generosity to others, especially to those who are less fortunate.
Moreover, Ramadan provides an opportunity for us to connect with our faith and cultural identity. It is a time when we can share our experiences and traditions with our non-Muslim neighbours, and help to promote understanding and respect. It also allows them to see the diversity within the Muslim community, as different cultures and traditions have their own unique practices and celebrations during Ramadan.
