Alhamdulillaah, here is the Ramadan Activity Book for Grade 2

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته


Alhamdulillaah, here is a small Ramadan packet for children in grade 2 (as indicated in this post, this packet is smaller than the Ramadan Activity Book for grade 1).  Time permitting, other pages will be added during the month of Ramadan in shaa' Allaah. If that is possible, the new/additional pages will appear in a separate post as well as in this post in shaa' Allaah. It is hoped that this small effort is pleasing to Allaah and accepted by Him.


In this book children will read and interact with several ahadith related to Ramadan, they will practice their writing skills with Ramadan writing prompts, and they will complete a few math and science pages inshaa' Allaah. Some of the information in this packet was taken from the very beneficial book مجالس شهر رمضان by the noble Shaykh Muhammad Saleh ibn al-Uthaymeen (rahimallaah). You can download the book here in Arabic and here in English

**IMPORTANT**: There are several pages in the book that encourage children to try to fast; however, as you know, fasting is not obligatory on children at this age. Some children are trying to fast part of Ramadan this year and these pages are meant as encouragement for those children.These pages are not intended to imply that children must fast during Ramadan.**

You can download the Ramadan Activity book free for Grade 2 here or from A Muslim Child is Born's Teacher Notebook shop here in shaa' Allaah. 


Update: New pages have been added alhamdulillaah. Please see this post.
 
Benefit & Enjoy!

    1. Jazakillaahu khayr. May Allaah reward those children who are striving in this blessed month and may Allaah reward their parents as well. Ameen. For those children who are trying to fast, then may Allaah increase them in goodness.

      It was narrated that al-Rubayyi’ bint Mu’awwidh ibn ‘Afra’ رضي الله عنها said: On the morning of ‘Ashoora’, the Messenger of Allaah ﷺ sent word to the villages of the Ansaar around Madeenah, saying: “Whoever started the day fasting, let him complete his fast, and whoever started the day not fasting, let him complete the rest of the day (without food).”

      After that, we used to fast on this day, and we would make our children fast too, even the little ones in sha Allaah. We would make them toys out of wool, and if one of them cried for food, we would give (that toy) to him until it was time to break the fast.

      Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1960) and Muslim (1136).

      And Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen رحمه اللهsaid:

      A young child should not be forced to fast until he has reached the age of adolescence, but he may be told to fast if he is able to do it, so that he may get used to it and it will be easier for him after he reaches puberty. The Sahaabah رضي الله عنهما – who are the best of this ummah – used to make their children fast when they were young. End quote.

      Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 19/28, 29

      "This is what the companions of the Prophet ﷺ did with their children; they would tell those who were able to fast to do so, and if one of them wept because of hunger, they would give him a toy to distract him, but it is not permissible to force them to fast if it will harm them in cases of physical weakness or sickness."
