Suhoor Blessings (Activities, Knowledge Quest board game, Trivia Cards)

Below are some activities based on the audio class titled, “Pre-dawn Meal (Suhuur)”.  The purpose is to help make us familiar with some of the aspects of suhoor.

The activities include quizzes, trivia cards, and 2 board games: Knowledge Quest and Spokes. Both adults and children can benefit from these activities.

First, listen to the audio (link given below). Take notes on things you are not familiar with. The activities below are all based on knowledge about suhoor and its blessings.

If you have young children, use the audio transcript as a guide to help you explain the information using words they can understand. Listening to the audio yourself and taking notes on a printed transcript can help you explain it.

Present only one section of the audio information at a time to children. Then do the activity that matches up with what you explained. That way, it will be easier for them to retain what you teach them.

**Adults: Please Do Not use the transcript unless you are not able to listen and take notes. The transcript here is for those who have children who are not able to grasp the information without adult help.

Each activity has the list of materials you will need. If you find any mistakes (like typos, etc), please use the comment feature on the blog to let me know.

Setting Goals

As Ramadhan approaches, now is a good time to assess our lives. Use the lecture and the following worksheets as a guide to decide what goals to set and how to reach those goals.



You will need to listen to the audio lecture by Dr. Saleh As-Saleh. My personal advice is to listen carefully without taking notes. Fully concentrate on what is being said. Then, listen again and take notes.

Next, try using the Success Ladder Packet to help you set and achieve a goal you have set for yourself this Ramadhan. Instructions on how to use it are in the packet.
