Ramadan is less than a month away, and you may be thinking of beneficial activities to do with the children in your life.

Writing can be a great way to have children reflect on Ramadan.

With that in mind, I have put together a simple youth journal with writing prompts and daily charts that help one keep track of prayers and other good deeds.

The idea of the prompts is to help kids think about various issues they may encounter as a Muslim. Prompts include questions and exercises such as the following:

  • Do you think that work and school hours should be reduced for Muslims in Ramadan? Why or why not?
  • Do you ever feel tired of fasting? How do you motivate yourself each day?
  • How does fasting in Ramadan help one develop feelings of compassion and empathy?
  • If someone told you fasting was too hard, how would you respond?
  • Brainstorm ways of sharing Ramadan with non-Muslims.

The journal is in PDF format and can be downloaded here. Just print out the pages and staple them together, or insert the pages into a binder or plastic jacket. The file includes extra template pages in case extra space is needed or you want to write prompts of your own. Kids may decorate the journal with stickers or their own drawings and designs.

If you decide to use this journal, please provide feedback, including what age-range you think it is suitable for. Also let me know which prompts you did and did not like. If you have suggestions on how to improve the journal for future years, that would be appreciated as well.

The journal is free to use in the classroom, in the mosque, and at home (print as many copies as you like), but please do not use it for commercial purposes.

Kindly share this post with others – and subscribe to the blog to receive notification of more writing activities for Muslim children.

Take Your Writing to the Next Level!

While some writers make a dollar per article writing for content mills, others make a dollar per word writing for high-end magazines and other publications. A thousand bucks for a thousand words is a reality for many writers, and it can be your reality, too. The BIG BOOK of High-Paying Markets, a new Kindle e-book by Amel S. Abdullah, will show you how.
