Wa Alaikum Assalam,

I am not Muslim but I am new to the board and looking around the religion section. I didn't want to read and run. What is aloo gobi if you don't mind sharing? How do you prepare for Ramadan?

your welcome here sister , aloo gobi is a dish consisting of cauliflower and potatoes its a indian/pakistani dish very delicious!.. well i prepare for ramadan by reading more quran and keeping steadfast with my prayers becoming more aware of my intentions in my heart , doing as many good deeds I can do intention really plays a role in this as well because whats a good deed if you dont have pure intention in your heart, watching my character and trying to improve myself as much as possible this should not only be for ramadan but its a good reminder and these help Ramadan is a very blessed month with many rewards it teaches us many things MASHA'ALLAH its a time to practice self restraint , to cleanse the mind and body of impurities and refocus on our worship with ALLAH

Asalamalaikum . My name is Nora, I'm 32. Omar is my 1st. I'm syrian but born & live in th UAE.

Until now all the preparation for Ramadan is preparing food like Kebbeh & pastries & freezing them

This Ramadan Inshallah I'm planning to go to the mosque for prayer, last Ramadan I was busy with Omar as he was still a baby. Hopefully this Ramadan it would be easier. Omar was going through a sleep regression during ramadan, & it was very challenging with fasting & taking care of him.

Good luck & Inshallah you get a BFP soon xx

Walaikum assalam!

I am a recent convert to Islam and won't be fasting due to pregnancy but I want to make this Ramadan feel "special" for my 4 year old daughter and I'm trying to figure out some ways to do that. So far I plan on making the home look festive with lights and I will write Ramadan Karim in our window

I will print off some lanterns for her to colour in and mosques. I will try to teach her one simple thing about the month per day. At her age, I want her to arrive at Eid feeling like this was a holiday type of time, even if both parents are working full time all month and there is no big party like there is for Christmas...

I hope to make 30 rings linked together with construction paper counting down to Eid and we will find something special to do for Eid. We might follow the Egyptian tradition of giving her money so I'd get her a piggy bank and we could do that, to make it a bit different than gifts she gets at Christmastime.

Ramadan karim sisters, it's really right around the corner! May we all manage to attain our goals and please Allah

Asalamalaikum sister candice welcomee its so nice to see reverts MASHA'ALLAH and that sounds really good i think that would really get the kids excited about ramadan and enjoy and a good learning experience at the same time for them great ideas! and i think incorporating the money tradition would be good for your daughter too , alot of people do that. your daughter is lucky to have you and her father i know it must not be easy since your both full-time working but INSHA'ALLAH i hope everything works out how you planned and MASHA'ALLAH its so nice to see how dedicated you planned and the different ideas you have and would like to do to have a fun learning experience for her

asalamalaikum sophxx i think you should read candices comment above she had some great approaches for children and activites to make for learning about ramadan and at the same time having a fun approach i think its really important for children to understand ramadan its meaning, but specificly for eid that you asked about you can decorate your house usually people invite their friends and family over to the house or you go visit people in your case you can still invite your friends or your childrens friends over for eid they dont have to be muslim and yes there is not a specific dish cooked for eid because so many different backgrounds of people many of which have different special dishes like lebanese they have their own special recipes , pakistani have different special recpies also im not sure what your OH background is but maybe you can look into his background and their recipes...but you can find many of these recipes on the net and you can try to make them as well they are not that difficult there are different sweets and actual dishes some of the sweets you can buy from a store as well im not sure if in your area you have alot of like ethnic stores i guess? that sell these...if you dont want to make them if you have more questions on it i can help you further on that topic, also you can buy your children gifts like a new outfit as a present and also theres tradition of giving some money too its not a must but these are some options you can think about also some people the night before eid do henna designs on their hands and children really like that too.. theres alot of options which you can make you and your families tradition too but the most important aspect is really teaching them about what ramadan is anyways i hope i helped somewhat.. if you have more questions please do ask
