30 duas (2013)

So many of you have asked if we will continue our blog this year. InshAllah we’ll try our best. This Ramadan, we thought we’d do “30 Days 30 Duas (prayers)”. Some days it will be personal, duas for family and friends and ourselves; other days it will be duas for people we’ve never met, in different corners of the world, who are suffering, hurting, needing our prayers. The idea behind this blog was to share the essence of Ramadan with our children; to involve them in understanding that in addition to fasting, Ramadan is about doing good, about being grateful, about saying prayers and caring for others. This year, as a family, we’ll say a special prayer each night for someone we love, discuss a situation around the world that needs our prayers, or recite a dua from the Quran to help guide us and protect us. Please join us, and share your special duas with us. 30 Days. 30 Duas. InshAllah.
