Ramadan is a vital time for Muslims. It’s a month of blessings and rewards from our Lord, Allah- the All-mighty. But for our children in North America days and nights of Ramadan might be like other days and nights of the year unless we make any extra efforts. They can hardly feel the “Ramadan’ as they are busy as usual in school and homework.
This is natural from our kids when we want to keep them within the boundaries of Islam and not giving them any Islamic alternatives. To make ‘Ramadan’ significant for them we as parents should make special efforts and plan. This only requires a small amount of creative thinking and even less effort to organize. Children are highly impressionable and intelligent individuals.
Their energy and creativity needs to be nurtured and stimulated during all waking hours.
“Annual MuslimVille Competition” is our effort to keep our children busy throughout the month of Ramadan and beyond. We call this program ‘Making My Ramadan Cool’I
In the year 2002 ‘MuslimVille Education Center’ introduced Ramadan Competitions for children of the Greater Toronto Area. Since then we have been organizing this competition every year and currently designed the program online in such way that children from different cities and towns from all over the world can participate in this unique Islamic educational program.
Over the years we have added some new programs, introduced more prizes for each programs and also make changes in the programs to suit the changing world of parenting.
This year MuslimVille has introduced following Competitions
Encouraging to develop the talent of the Holy Quran recitation.
We have suggested some Islamic activities to keep them busy and encourage them in learning and practicing more about Islam. Keep track of all their activities, monitor and encourage them.
- Spending a TV-off/Screen-free week with more creativity and productivity.
- Keeping record of all Islamic Activities.
- Reading Quran and Islamic books.
- Doing some Islamic projects.
During this Ramadan, we suggest that Muslim Families to spend a week as Smart-Cool Week. The aim of the program is to focus on creativity, productivity and learning. Another aim of the program is to reduce the amount of time spent with TV and Video game. Television has become the single most dominant influence in the lives of our children and it plays a crucial role in teaching them western morals and behavior. The only thing that kids do more than watching TV is sleep. So do the so-called video-game.
Making learning fun for kids
Reading is the most effective tools for the mental development of your children. The aim of Islamic Knowledge Competition is to make learning fun for them. To make their study easy we have developed Study Plan for Ramadan suitable for every age group. Let them spend this Ramadan time for learning more about Islam and building their Islamic talents.
