Ramadan Journal 2013: Day 4: Currently Reading + A GIVEAWAY

by - July 14, 2013

If you are here for the first time, kindly read this post on Journal your Ramadan to understand this series better. Jazakumullah khair.

I was really looking forward to this prompt to talk about some of the books we (my children and I) have been reading lately. During Ramadan, I do not get much time to read anything else other than the Holy Quran. But this year, I purchased few Islamic books for my children and started reading them couple of weeks before Ramadan. 

By reading 'Hurray it is Ramadan', Talha and Aisha was introduced to the word Ramadan and what Ramadan is all about. Although Talha is 5+ years old, he has become more responsive and verbal lately. Which means now I know for sure that he has understood something as he talks about these topics often by himself. A year back, he wasn't as verbal as he is now. Talkative to be more precise. 

Right now we are reading 'A Time To Give' from the same series. These books are very well written and illustrated. If you feel that they are a bit long for a children's book, you can always finish them in parts. 

I had attended an event called 'Ahlan Ramadan' at Book Munch from where I purchased the book called 'Ramadaniyat' written by an Emirati author. It has simple recipes and craft ideas to keep our children (and ourselves) busy during Ramadan. It also came with 30 days of prompts for activities. Unfortunately, they had no English copies left. But that is okay. I have been bugging my friends on Instagram to help me translate the prompts. You can find this book and more at Hilalful.

Now for the best part. Hilalful has been kind enough to give me a set of decorative lights and swirls to give away. Hurray! I have been a customer of Hilalful for a while and I'am very pleased with their prompt and kind customer service. I would really like you to support this growing company who is making it easier for us to acquire Islamic books and other resources for ourselves and our children. 

To enter the giveaway simply visit Hilalful's website and also like their Facebook page. Leave a comment here once you have done both. Two separate comments for each please. The give away is open to readers residing outside of UAE too. 

I will pick a winner randomly by July 20th. Insha Allah. Please note that this is not a paid review. 

Please include a link to your Day 4 here. Kindly link directly to your post and not your general blog link. I will also be pinning your post onto my Ramadan Journal 2013 board on Pinterest. If you do not wish to be pinned, please let me know by leaving a comment below.
