30 days of Ramadan Crafty Challenge 2014

Ramadan begins on Saturday, June 28, 2014 and is a month when Muslims all over the world fast from dawn till dusk. It commemorates the Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) month of fasting and prayer while waiting for Allah's (God's) words about how to live and lead.
 
This sacred month is an equalizer, when rich and poor will both feel what it means to go hungry. It is a reminder that we are one and the same to Allah. The end of the month is commemorated with community gatherings where those that are able are required to feed the homeless and less fortunate.

For 30 days, Muslims do not allow anything to pass their lips from dawn to dusk. This includes eating, drinking, smoking, kissing, etc. The only exceptions are menstruating, pregnant or breastfeeding women and those that are ill or traveling.

In 2011 I started a 30 days of Ramadan Crafty Challenge

My daughters and I will be continuing this tradition with 30 more crafts starting tomorrow.

Ramadan Kareem!

Me too! :-)

It's been fun to research craft books and Pinterest boards to come up with the ideas.

If you have any suggestions for sites to visit, please post them.

Ramadan Kareem!
