The idea is: “Read books, recite Quran and remember Allah”. Children will create their own reading challenge from our selection of Islamic story books. They will also select a remembrance-of-Allah exercise from a selected Adhkar list, these will be adhkar that are normally outside their school curriculum, and they will choose how many times to recite them. Most likely by the end of the exercise they will have memorised them (which is great!). Finally, students who are capable of reciting Quran, will additionally choose a recitation quota from selected surahs of high virtue to recite a chosen number of times.
Whilst doing the challenge children will get family and friends to support them by sponsoring them.
These are some of the benefits
- Reading of Islamic story books and being exposed to the morals to be learned from the books at the same time as being simulated and entertained.
