Are Your Children Ready for Ramadan?

Ramadan is always a very special time for Muslims all over the globe.

It’s a time for closeness to our Creator, for spiritual healing, for asking for forgiveness and seeking Allah's content with us.

But sometimes we don't really know how to make our children feel the uniqueness of this holy month; some other times it is even difficult to make them accept the rituals of Ramadan and understand the real meaning behind it.

  Several of the world's great religions recommend a period of fasting or abstinence from certain foods. Of these, the Islamic fast during the Muslim month of Ramadan is strictly observed every year. Islam specifically outlines one full month of intermittent fasting. The experience of fasting is intended to teach Muslims self-discipline and self-restraint and remind them of the plight of the impoverished. Muslims observing the fast are required to abstain not only from eating and drinking, but also from consuming oral medications and intravenous nutritional fluids.

Every community of the world celebrates some days as very important in its social setup. It gives them special significance because of political or historical events taking place on those days. The special days that the Muslims observe or celebrate owe their significance due to the occurrence of some religious and spiritual events on those days. As the holy month of Ramazan is considered the most important month in the Islamic calendar the last Friday of this month is also given the same religious importance. The month of Ramazan is more sacred than other months of the Islamic calendar because in this very month commenced the revelation of the Quran-i-Majid which serves as the complete code of life for the Muslims for all times and climes.

Harira is a very popular Moroccan soup, mixing chickpeas, lentils, lamb and celery with spices as turmeric, cinnamon, and saffron. Traditionally, it is eaten to break the fast in Morocco during Ramadan, as the soup is gentle for the empty stomach and full of important vitamins. In Saudi Arabia, it is one of the main soups in Ramadan as well, along with lentil soup and soup with oats. Harira knows many versions — such as with beef, chicken, or vegetarian, or with beaten eggs stirred in at the end — so it definitely suits any taste!

The month of Ramadan is a month of fasting and spiritual reflection. It is also a month in which family comes together. The breaking of the fast, or Iftar, usually occurs with family and starts with eating dates and drinking water or Qahwa (Arabic coffee). After that, some families go to the mosque to pray Maghrib, after which the main meal is served, while others have the meal directly after sunset. The breaking of the fast comes with several traditional Iftar-delights. Sambusak is probably the most popular dish in Saudi Arabia.

Sobia is the most popular drink in Ramadan; it is sold almost on every street corner. Saudis like to break their fast with a cold glass of Sobia to give them energy and power,” said Um Tariq, a 78-year-old citizen. “I have witnessed my mother and grandmother preparing this drink ever since I was a child, and now I’m proceeding with this tradition and teaching my grandchildren how to prepare our famous Sobia recipe,” she added.
