All Things Ramadan

Updated: May 15


Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatahu


So much has changed in the past few weeks. Aside from the obvious changes, i.e. schools, malls, gyms, and after school activities closing, there has been a shift in mindset amongst many Muslims. We are all coming to the realization that surely, this is not just a test from Allah (SWT), but a reminder that we need to rethink our priorities.


In previous years, we spent hours and hours planning the perfect Ramadan activities for our students. The kids looked forward to the activities, games, scavenger hunt and of course, the food, that the parents donated to ensure that these Muslim tweens and teens truly celebrated the start of their holiest month. It saddens me now knowing that we will not have that opportunity this year.


In this post, I have tried to organize and detail the lessons and activities that we have done over the years so that parents at home can still use them for their families. Some of it may be unclear, in which case you can send me an email at ummali518@gmail.com. You can also contact me on IG@dessertinthedesert1.
