Teaching Children Fasting In Ramadan? Here Are 5 Easy Ways Parents Should Know

Published

on

Fasting is actually not an easy task for little children especially for the first timer but it is the duty of their parents to educate them about fasting before the month of Ramadan comes. This is because parents could train them to be more prepared to face the holy month. There are several easy ways that can be used by parents to teach them about fasting that is appropriate for their own age.

It is really important to allow children to be in a state of readiness and not be surprised when they cannot eat and drink all day. Most importantly, tell them about the reasons and importance of fasting.

1) Explain The Concept Of Fasting

Parents can explain that fasting not only suppresses the appetite and drinking but also months of practices such as tarawih prayers, sahur, and breaking fast. Make them realize that fasting reminds everyone that God is the only provider of every good and perfect gift. Help children to find this reality.

2) Do Not Force The Children

It is actually the best decision not to force them to fast completely, especially those who are still young, instead let them try to follow their ability. This is because forcing them to fast would make them lose interest in fasting easier and faster because they would feel so the burden to do it.

3) ‘Sahur’

Waking up early in the morning for ‘sahur’ can be a bit difficult for all the children and as parents, always remind them about it so that they get used to waking up for ‘sahur’. Give them a choice of what menu they want to eat so that they feel excited for ‘sahur’ and they do not want to miss it.

4) Give Motivation Towards Children

Motivation and also moral support are sorely needed by children so that they are confident they can fast or at least try and understand the concept. Having support from the parents would be really meaningful for the children when fasting.

5) Perform Daily Activities As Usual

When teaching children to fast, parents should allow children to do the usual activities including playing with their friends. Do not ban them just for fear they will feel hungry. If there are too many prohibitions, they may misunderstand the concept of fasting. The activity can also make them forget about feeling hungry and not ask for a break.

These Are 5 Record-Breaking Performances Of All Time In The Olympics

Published

on

The modern Summer Olympic Games have been held every four years since its first Games in the year 1896 and Olympic records are recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in every event. There are actually so many Olympic records that have been broken each year. This is actually so amazing because all the athletes have been working and also practicing their best to create an amazing record for their own performances. Such a great effort.

For the athletes in the Olympics, it would be such a great accomplishment if they could win themselves a gold medal. Little did many people know, it is much more satisfying for all of these athletes if they could do so in a record-breaking fashion. To honor their effort and perseverance, these are the 5 greatest performances in the Olympics.

1) Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt was so far ahead of the competition, he slowed down not out of humility, but rather a celebration. His own 100-meter performance at the 2008 Beijing Games rocked the competition, clocking in at 9.69. Bolt also captured the 200-meter world record with a time of 19.30. Bolt has since broken both of these records, which make his runs at the 2012 London Games must-see events.

2) Elaine Thompson-Herah

As the greatest women’s 100m race reached its denouement, Elaine Thompson-Herah burned past her greatest rival and then raised her left arm in a victory salute. Incredibly, Thompson-Herah had broken the American’s Olympic record. And when she talked about potentially downing Griffith Joyner’s world record of 10.49, such talk did not appear quite as fanciful as it would have done a few moments before.

3)  Inge de Bruijn

The only women’s swimming record not broken at the 2008 Beijing Games was Inge de Bruijn’s 100-meter butterfly. She already owned both the Olympic and world records at the time, but de Bruijn dominated the second lap at the 2000 Sydney Games. At the halfway mark, she was behind her own pace by .3 seconds. But the Netherlands swimmer accelerated after the turn and won by a full body length. She also captured 50-meter and 100-meter freestyle gold in Sydney.

4) Dick Fosbury

What is now considered normal in high jumping was first a quirky move used to world-record levels by Dick Fosbury at the 1968 Mexico City Games. He ‘flopped’ over the bar to a then-record 2.24 meters or 7’4″. In what was dubbed the ‘Fosbury Flop’, the American launched himself up and over by arching his back rather than the two conventional methods of going face-down or scissor-kicking over the bar. Fosbury was the first to try the move, after failing to succeed with the other two methods. Now, his world record has been broken, but his method is the sport’s norm.

5) Rulon Gardner

When someone hasn’t lost in 13 years, an opponent can get intimidated, but not Rulon Gardner. Gardner took down Alexander Karelin at the 2000 Syndey Games to win the Greco-Roman wrestling gold medal. The American had competed only once before in an international tournament, while the Russian was the three-time defending Olympic champion. Furthermore, Karelin was considered the greatest wrestler of all time and had not allowed a point in the last decade. But Gardner outlasted the legend to win the super heavyweight gold.

Kelantan Kite-Makers Continue To Receive Orders Despite Pandemic

Published

on

KOTA BHARU, July 30 — The COVID-19 pandemic did not stop a group of youths in Kampung Sireh here from pursuing their interest in making wau, a traditional kite widely found in Kelantan.

A check by Bernama at Kampung Sireh Flats found that  about seven to 10 youths were producing ‘wau puyuh’ (quail kite) or Wau Kelantan ordered by their customers.

According the group’s head, Muhd Nasru Aiman Mohd Zu, 31, they would continue producing wau puyuh even during the pandemic due to steady orders, and they did not want the traditional art to die out.

Even though it is seen as an old-fashioned craft compared to the modern gadgets, it still has its own fans, he told reporters when met here today.

“Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God), there are still young people in this area who are keen to learn how to make these traditional kites.

“Previously, we only made kites for competitions, but now the demand for giant-sized kites as decorative pieces is increasing,” he said, adding that they learned the kite-making skills from his 61-year-old father, Mohd Zu Man.

Muhd Nasru Aiman said despite the economic slowdown, they continued to receive four to five orders a month for a kite and each piece of giant-sized kite could be sold at the price of RM350.

He said the giant-sized kite needs more than five adult men to fly it.
