Young Ramadan Heroes Recognition - 2021 / 1442 Hijri

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu Dear Hamzah Community.
 
Hamzah Islamic Center and Hamzah Science Academy organize Annual Young Ramadan Heroes Recognition program with the objective of encouraging and recognizing accomplishments of young children from our community who fast at least one full day during current Ramadan. Young children from our Community look forward to this program each year and this Ramadan marks 5th anniversary since this program was started. Due to uncertainties and safety concerns surrounding early stage of Pandemic, we organized a curtailed version of this program last Ramadan (2020) in which only children who fasted for the very first time were recognized in a drive-thru ceremony. Alhamdulillah, processes for drive-thru events at the Masjid have evolved over the last year. For Ramadan this year we have put in place logistics as per CDC guidelines to support the drive-thru ceremony in a safe environment to recognize all Elementary school and Middle school children who have fasted at least one full day.
 
Based on the feedback from the Community we’ve introduced Ibadah chart this year which not only tracks the days a child has fasted but also tracks all obligatory Fard salah, other salah (including Sunnah, Nawafil, Witr, Tahajjud, Taraweeh), charity, Quran recitation/memorization, reading/memorization of Hadith, reading/memorization of Dua’s, helping parents and others. In summary, by the end of Ramadan this chart will provide an overview of children’s Ibadah efforts, which shall be immensely rewarded by Allah (swt).
 
Please collect hard copy of the Ibadah chart for your children after any salah at Masjid starting April 9th (Friday) until April 18th (Sunday) from any volunteer or Board member and register your child by April 18th at http://bit.ly/RamadanHeroes using unique registration Id mentioned on the Ibadah chart. Parents need to update the chart and sign it on a daily basis and take a picture of completed chart and upload it between May 5th and May 6th. A link to upload will be communicated in a follow up email. Elementary school children who completed Ibadah under each category on at least 3 days and Middle school children who completed Ibadah under each category on at least 5 days will be recognized as Ramadan Super-Heroes. The criteria for Super-Hero eligibility will be determined based on children’s Ibadah until May 6th. All other children will be recognized as Ramadan Heroes. Super Heroes’ names will be announced during virtual fundraiser on May 7th. Drive-thru Recognition ceremony will be held after Asr on May 9th (Sunday) in which children will receive certificate and a goody bag.
