A Ramadan to Remember
From the Series Holidays in Our Home
Ramadan is almost here! It’s Zain’s favorite time of the year.
Well, it usually is. After a recent move and with no mosque or Islamic school in his new neighborhood, will Zain find a new Muslim friend to celebrate with him?
Children will learn what makes the ninth Islamic month special from pre-Ramadan decorating, the importance of fasting and volunteering in the community, and the festivities and prayers that continue through the month, ending with Eid al-Fitr.
Marzieh A. Ali and Najwa Awatiff join together to celebrate their respective cultures as Ramadan is observed by Muslims around the world.
