Awqaf SA has developed a programme for young children under the banner of “Children of Islam.” As part of this programme various Children’s’ activities are run in-conjunction with other organizations to celebrate our youth and inculcate within them the values of Islam under the theme “Love, Learn & Live Islam”.
One of these projects, “The Fasting Children of Islam Certificates” is geared towards rewarding and encouraging young Muslim children who have completed the full or part fast during the month of Ramadaan.
Mickaeel Collier, Deputy CEO of Awqaf SA says that “the Certificates are a recognition of our children’s commitment and dedication to Ramadaan and the consciousness and eagerness that display in fulfilling this act of worship. Through these types of programmes, we pray that our children will become flagbearers and leaders of society in the future, Insha’Allah.
We have designed two certificates:
1. for kids that have fasted the entire month and
2. for those who could only manage to fast a few days of the month.
In a hadith the Prophet (SAW) said: “There are seven categories of people who are under the shade of Allah on the Day when there is no shade except His Shade…” one of these categories is “…a youth who has been raised in the worship of Allah.”
As parents the greatest gift that we can give to our children is to instil within them the love for Islam. These certificates are therefore a recognition of their sacrifices during the month of Ramadaan. We urge all parents, madressas, masjids, parent committees, and other institutions to print the certificates and present it to their children on the day of Eid, Insha’Allah.
