Pray for Muslims During Ramadan

From April 2-May 1, Muslims around the world observe their holy month of Ramadan. With your family, learn about and pray for Muslims during this period of fasting when many are seeking God in deeper ways. Read the story below. Then choose from the suggested activities to go deeper in learning about and praying for Muslims during Ramadan.

Rashid (rah-SHEED) excitedly follows his father and uncles to the mosque. He has joined in prayer with the men before, but this time is different. He’s finally old enough to participate fully in the fast of Ramadan (RAH-muh-dahn), the most holy month on the Muslim calendar. As his stomach growls in protest, Rashid realizes it has been many hours since his pre-dawn meal. His stomach will just have to wait until sunset, the time he will enjoy a meal with his family. But it is worth it. Rashid remembers his father’s words: “Fasting is an expression of our faith, a form of worship, and a way to please Allah.” Entering the cool interior of the mosque with the others, Rashid imagines other Muslim families all around the world. Like him, they are observing the fast, praying with others in their community, and seeking to please Allah.


Robert is getting ready for bed. ​​After dinner, his family had watched a video about Muslim children in Malaysia. As he lies in bed, Robert thinks about Malay boys and girls who do not understand that Jesus is God’s Son. Instead of trusting in Jesus to forgive their sin and bring them into a relationship with God, they are taught to please God by doing good things– like not eating or drinking during the daytime for the whole month of Ramadan. Robert imagines how hungry he would have been at school and during football practice if he hadn’t eaten all day.

Robert’s parents come into his room and sit on the side of his bed. Together, they locate Malaysia on Robert’s globe. Then they begin to pray for Muslim children. “God, please help boys and girls in Malaysia to know you love them. Help them understand that Jesus died on the cross to remove their sin and make their hearts clean before God.”
