What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims all around the world.
It’s a time when Muslims fast from dawn until sunset, meaning they do not eat or drink anything during daylight hours.
The month of Ramadan is important because it is believed to be the month when the first verses of the Quran, the holy book of Islam, were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.
Ramadan is a time for reflection, prayer, and charity.
Muslims also gather with family and friends to break their fasts in the evening, and the month concludes with a celebration called Eid al-Fitr.
What is Eid al-Fitr?
Eid al-Fitr, also known as the “Festival of Breaking the Fast,” is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
One of the most important religious festivals celebrated by Muslims around the world, this holiday usually lasts for three days.
Eid al-Fitr is a time of joy, feasting, and sharing with family and friends, as well as giving to the less fortunate.
It is also a time for forgiveness and seeking forgiveness from Allah for any sins committed during the year.
“Ramadan Bedtime Stories” was especially designed to target each night of the month of Ramadan. Through short stories, your little ones will be introduced to Ramadan, the Prophets of Allah, the important values that Islam upholds, such as honestly, kindness and respect, as well as stories narrated in the Quran.
