Bismillah. 25 day left until Ramadan 2017 – eeeek!!
If you follow my blog, you’ll know I love lists and may remember I’ve shared my Ramadan To Do List on here before. This year, I’ve changed it. And I’ve made an extra one, one for a little Muslim, my daughter.
I’ve kept it simple 🙂
It isn’t very detailed and has five “tasks” for her to complete daily. Here’s what they are and why:
A daily good deed from a good deed jar:
This will include things like helping with chores, smiling, being kind to mummy and baba, sharing toys with baby brother.
Trying to “pray” at least one salah with either mummy or baba every day. For us, this will mainly be Dhuhr or Asr, as the other times she will most likely be asleep.
Salawaat upon Prophet Muhammad (saw):
We already do this in the mornings in the car, but in Ramadan I’d like to put extra emphasis on this – making it something that comes naturally to us.
This is to make sure little Muslims also understand that Ramadan is the month of the Quran – there will no strict schedule for this, but if she reads them all and ticks her sheet, we can remind her of the reward of reciting only one letter of the Quran.
Thank you, Sorry and Please Allah:
This is something we started doing after printing off the brilliant cards by Parenthood: Muslim Style. They work amazingly to help us be grateful to Allah, ask for His Forgiveness and make dua for something we need. We do this as a family and say our duas out loud. It helps discussions around all the things we can ask Allah for.
You can print the The Little Muslims’ Ramadan To Do List too, click here: Little Muslim_s Ramadan To Do List Sheet1 – my tiny Muslimah is already very excited about ticking the boxes off, do let me know if you get to use this too with your little ones. 🙂
So, now coming on to my list. The serious stuff. Well, all of it is serious, because our Rabb is so Merciful, He will inshaAllah reward us for even intending to do this, may He accept it from us, Ameen.
Heres my list: Ramadan To Do List Sheet1 – if you use it, then I make dua Allah helps you and me gain reward for all we attempt.
I’ve added a list of references to all the ibadah I’ve included in my list. Its here: The rewards Ramadan
The To Do List looks like this:
And lastly, having a To Do list doesn’t mean we will automatically be doing all the things we want to or can, it only means, it can maybe help us a little, maybe push us a little, maybe remind us that Ramadan is the month to do more. Not everyone needs a list, but if you’re a list maker like me or you work better when you’re working and ticking things off, then this may come handy.
I make dua, we reach Ramadan in good health, high iman and ready to make the most of it. Ameen.
