Charitable Choices by Dana Smith Bader in OTR Blog

“Ramadan is here, alhamdulillah! It is a time for fasting, extra prayers, acts of worship, and charity. It is also a special time for family gatherings and the perfect time to teach our children about doing good deeds for others. This week we look more closely at how to teach our children about the importance of charity and how to get them involved from a young age.”

Ramadan is a time for charitable acts.  During the holy month of Ramadan as we work to fast from sunrise to sunset, we spend more time praying and doing good deeds.  Our focus turns away from ourselves towards others and how we can help them in their time of need.  In an effort to accumulate as many rewards from Allan (SWT) as possible, we look for any opportunity we can to feed the poor, make donations to the needy, and help others in our community who require assistance.

With so much of our personal attention on charitable acts, Ramadan also becomes the perfect time to teach our children about charity. Hopefully, by participating in family acts of charity during Ramadan, children can learn about the joy of giving to others and make it a part of their everyday lives. To help your children acquire the habit of charity, consider implementing some of the following strategies:

  • Practice What You Preach
  • Be Hands On

  • Donate Clothes
  • Help Your Neighbors
  • Hold a Children’s Donation Party
  • Include Pets
  • Deliver Nutrition…Click here to read the complete article
