    Ramadan spirit is the core of a collaborative, positive home environment. Ramadan spirit builds off of strong interpersonal communication, and strengthens the Muslim home because everyone works towards a common goal and feels a strong sense of belonging.  A Ramadan environment in your home that welcomes creative, diverse opinions and open to all members within the family fosters growth, and, in turn, makes your home a fun place to be.

        Ramadan Books  
        The more you read to your children about our holidays, stories of the prophet, etc., the more knowledge they absorb, and knowledge is important in all aspects of their life. After all, reading with your children gives them the ability to build their Islamic vocabulary skills needed for when they start to read themselves. So we’ve put together some of the best Ramadan books to set you and your child towards success. Happy reading.

          Ramadan Gift Giving
          Gift giving during Ramadan is a simple way to cultivate the excitement and sprite within your family home. Pre-plan to gift wrap small items to give throughout the month of Ramadan. And yes, while our kids enjoy gifts during this holiday season, remember and be mindful, for us Muslims, Ramadan is a religious holiday. Here are a few ways to have fun with gift giving this Ramadan.

          1. Do a kids’ “Nasheed chairs” gift exchange.” Playing a version of musical chairs by having the kids sit in a circle and passing around wrapped gifts while Nasheed music plays. The children get to keep whatever they’re holding when the Nasheed music stops—more exciting than just picking a gift out of a bag.
          2. Gift giving Game: Invite everyone to contribute a wrapped gift. Draw numbers out of a jar to see who gets to pick from the pile first. Player No. 1 chooses and unwraps a gift, then shows it to everyone else. Player No. 2 then either “steals” that present or picks and unwraps another one from the pile. Player No. 3 can then steal either gift, or choose and unwrap another, and so on. Any player whose gift is stolen gets to pick again. The game continues until everyone has a gift.
          3. Play Ramadan Trivia. Can you name all nine of “must do” during Ramadan? If so, you get first pick of the presents in the pile. Players use clickers or simply raise their hands to answer, and once they get a present, they’re out of the competition. At the end, the moderator gets to either choose the last gift remaining or take a gift from somebody else—a one-time-only privilege for all of his or her hard work. Click here for a list of Q & A fun Ramadan Trivia questions for your family gift giving night!
          4. Gift treasure hunt. Save a few gifts (anything small and inexpensive), wrap them up, and hide them throughout the house. After the kids finish with breaking their fast & praying Magrib prayer, they can go off and look for new trinkets while you take a breather, get another cup of coffee, and gear up for the next day.
          5. Spin the bottle. Try a twist on spin the bottle to take turns opening gifts. Give a bottle a spin. Whoever it points to either opens a gift, or, if he doesn’t have any left, designates another person to do the same.
