Fasting

20 Feb

Have you ever given something up for a period of time? How did it feel and what benefits were there? How far would you go in giving things up?

Click on this video link to find out more about the fasting element of the Pillars of Islam and reflect on what Muslims do in Ramadan and why. What motivates Muslims to fast for such a long time? Lent starts tomorrow. Lots of people give up something for Lent. What do you think you could give up?

Why not test your new knowledge using a Zondle quiz. Login to Zondle and look at the ‘topics my teacher has set me’ section and click on Pillars of Islam.

      Breakfast means break fast, so its any breaking of a fast (such as just not eating between tea and breakfast).

    AM: If i had to give up some thing I would give up some of my board games and toys that other pore children might like. I would give up these because they need them more than I do.

    HS:If i also had to give up my ds for a whole two weeks and i could only have my phone to go to the park with.But still at least it is something.

    what is it called when you give something up for 40 days? We have never done this before and probably wouldn’t want to! 🙂
