Its very exciting to share the Bismillah Babies “My Ramadan Journal – Around the World” with you . This is a journal and activity book for children aged 6-12 years.
The Journal features characters/children from 15 different countries who talk about why Ramadan is special to them. They talk about the various aspects of Ramadan that they look forward to and share their traditions. There are activities, crafts, recipes and facts about the different countries. The journal also includes a moon-tracker, a daily record page, space to record experiences and encouragement – certificates along with various hadith and simple supplications.
We have designed this Journal, with the aim of showing the diversity that exists among the Muslim Ummah. The countries featured include both that immediately come to mind when Muslims are mentioned, such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Indonesia and others that are not traditionally thought of , such as Brazil and Norway. The characters in the journal are designed to reflect cultural differences in clothing, food and language. But at the same time, they talk about their love for Ramadan and how they celebrate this blessed month.
The message that we aim to convey is that in spite of differences in geography, language , food and other factors, we are united as brothers and sisters in faith.
