This post is late, but on day 4 my sister and the kids came over for a game of Ramadan Jeopardy, courtesy TJRamadan. It was a fun and exciting way for them to test their Ramadan knowledge as well as learn some new things as well. We split the kids into to two teams – Team Bilal and Team Uthman. I forgot which team won, but in any case the kids had fun competing with one another, and everyone – even the losing team – got a prize at the end, alhamdu lillaah.
My husband went to visit relatives out of town so we also had a sleep over mashaa Allaah. It was fun alhamdu lillaah.

“O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims).
And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (i.e. this Qur’an), and be not divided among yourselves, and remember Allah’s Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren, and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His Ayat clear to you, that you may be guided.
Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. And it is they who are the successful.” (Aal Imran : 102-104)
“Indeed Allah conferred a great favour on the believers when He sent among them a Messenger (Muhammad) from among themselves, reciting unto them His Verses, and purifying them, and instructing them (in) the Book (the Qur’an) The Wisdom (Sunnah), while before that they had been in manifest error.” (Aal Imran : 164)
