The Best of Ramadan Decoration Ideas

Yes, you need to decorate for Ramadan. Even in quarantine, this is our holiday. Make yourself feel how special this time is by surrounding yourself in Ramadan vibes.

Decorating will give you a lift. Even if you don’t have kids. Maybe especially if you don’t have kids who bring that extra excited energy to the holy month.

#JannahJournal now available on Amazon as a DIY lift-a-flap book (stay tuned for the flip-through video) 🌈 . . You can try any of the following purchase links if the above doesn’t work and see if any of these ship to your country: • UK: • GERMANY: • FRANCE: • ITALY: • CANADA: . . . Although the journal is geared towards kids who can write (5+), I’ve personally used the Jannah quotes and ahadith part with my 3 yr old too (who turned 5 few days ago 💖 and loves exploring art techniques in the journal). We started our night ritual of Jannah discussions around 2 yrs ago and it has brought so many positive changes in her life (more than any kind of punishment or threats), that I try to never leave this ritual even when I’m bone-tired. . . Due to this, kids' love for Allah deepened to the point where I would find “I love Allah” written in their drawings and belongings. They would ask to be left alone so they can make dua to Allah whenever they felt stressed. They became more kind to people around them. They became more obedient children alhamdulillah. They fought less with their siblings. They would recite Quran and perform Salah without any reminder just because they wanted more “jannah points” (rewards that ultimately lead us to Jannah with Allah’s mercy) alhamdulillah. May Allah keep them steadfast! . . I pray that your child (and even you) can benefit from this journal the same way or more… You can read all the details about the journal here 👇 . . . 📸: Kids have been REALLY missing their masjid trips so I converted their chalkboard wall stickers into minaret shapes. My 2yr old is a super doodler (which means I've repainted my walls countless times) so chalkboard felt like the safest choice for her artistic little hands 🥴 We are re-using the colourful shapes from the Jannah Journal (from last year). My 5yr old wanted to do them again this year. She's calling it her Ramadan corner ⭐🌙 #ramadan2020
