Beautiful Ramadan: Celebrations with Decoration

Ramzan Kareem Mah-e-Rahmat

 

The most important Month comes in the name of Ramadan. During this holy time, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar year, Muslims do not eat, drink from sunrise to sunset for an entire month for the sake of ALLAH. Instead, they spend their days in worship, praying in mosques. At the end of Ramadan, people celebrate with a festival known as Eid-Al-Fitr.

Although cultural and custom differences can be vast, the desire to celebrate at least unites people all over the globe. Feasts and festivals have been part of human tradition for many years, commemorating the spiritual, the sacred and sometimes simply strange. The decoration in the houses is part of celebration and happiness.

The tradition of Ramadan and Eid decor has developed dramatically in the past few years. As entrepreneurship grows, there are more options and interest than ever before, through sites like Etsy and social media companies like Instagram and Pinterest! This steady increase in creativity has given our Muslim holidays much needed attention and has paved the way to normalize them in our societies and mainstream stores.

 

Some may argue that we don't put too much emphasis on the spiritual and fasting aspects of Ramadan as much we pay on decoration.  I think the room can be for both and some beautiful decorations can help to make Ramadan stand out from other months for a festive and special mood.

 

Here are a few ideas to get your kids, family and homes ready and into the spirit of Ramadan and Eid! Please let us know in the comments below your favorite tips and traditions of Ramadan and Eid decoration.

 

Decorate Your Home

 

The decoration of Ramadan and Eid in the house is the most obvious and effective way to involve everyone at home and in the spirit of vacation. You will always be reminded of this festival everywhere you look. It's never too early to begin or too late. Make it an affair with your children through brainstorming. Make your child decorate their rooms or playrooms with this special month. For the sources of inspiration, social media can be helpful.

 

Putting up Lights and banner on an "Itikaf Tents" (where you only spend time worshipping or praising Ibadat) and a counting calendar for Ramadan and Eid are some ways to include the holidays. Here we know the best Henna Lanterns. Use them for Ramadan and keep them out after the holidays as wonderful additions to your decor.

 

Ramadan Baskets

 

Ramadan baskets are a great way for your children to take their time in Ramadan excitedly while they try to stop eating if they participate quickly. The contents of each basket can be personalized to meet the individual needs and age of your child. The books on Ramadan are a great thing to begin.

 

You can also use a water bottle to help them keep them hydrated when they break their fast. Think your child would be happy, you can place playdough, coloring books, a prayer rug, Ramadan event books and much more.

 

Except all these, you can also use Hanging Star Boxes, which you can make with paper and painted with beautiful designs, and the pre-attached gold string makes them easy to hang quick.

 

Ramadan Calendar

 

In recent years, this has been a new trend, and for good reason! There are innumerable options from DIY's like this 30-day Ramadan ball countdown, and a hat countdown schedule from Ramadan if you are more a crafty person.

 

Depending upon the age of your children, you can adjust the content every day. Handmade beginnings have also come out to help parents complement their Ramadan calendars with interactive activities and crafts with a one-off, digital Ramadan Calendar.

 

Include a piece of paper with a DUA or hadith on chocolate when hanging up a homemade- calendar. Using a Ramadan advent calendar can also be a great motivation for your children to fast.

 

Another great way to keep your children excited about this holy month while emphasizing what it is really all about is create a special place to pray and to read the Qur'an in your home.

 

Your children will want to spend most of their time here by decorating it with beautiful lanterns and glowing lights to give a warm and welcoming feel. The “Itikaf Tent” can be set up. This special created place can later be used for story time.Your children can practice their five daily prayers in their own mosque as well as their Tarawih and Qiyam prayers in this space.

 

Ramadan and Eid Decor

 

This year, we ask Allah (S) to give us blessings and to make us among those who observe Ramadan. While we know that the aim of this holy month is to concentrate on our spirituality and adoration, it can also be a way to maximize the most out of Ramadaan to create a special year by adding décor to the house for the entire family.

It is important to show our kids that our Deen-e- Islam is beautiful.

 

It was narrated that the Prophet (S) said: “Verily, Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty. He loves the loftiest of affairs and disapproves of pettiness.”

 

It is so exciting to see the numerous options that we now have in the Muslim world and the incredible products that they especially offer for Ramadan and Eid decorations. For your convenience, I've completed some of the options. Wish you a Happy decoration and shopping!
