MuslimVille Ramadan Competition is for children in Junior Kindergarten to grade 8. The series of programs – Activities Challenge, Smart-Cool Week, Little Sadaqa in Ramadan and Knowledge Competition – are designed to keep you and your children actively engaged during the month of Ramadan.
The competition seeks to expand your child’s Islamic knowledge and activities. The holy month of Ramadan was chosen for this competition because it gives parents and teachers a unique opportunity to come closer to their children and students. We find ourselves being more conscious of doing good, setting goals to become better Muslims, and building habits we hope to carry out for the rest of the year.
First organized in Toronto in the year 2002, this competition has now drawn in participants from all over the world. The program is offered online and organized by our volunteers in various cities.
To organize the competition in your school, masjid or community contact us.
Keep track of all the good activities that you do each day for the whole month of Ramadan.
Each activity that you do is worth a certain amount of points. Use the point system on page 4 to assign points for an activity. At the end of each day, add up the points that you have collected by doing good activities. For example, if you performed all 5 prayers, donated $1 to the mosque, and memorized 1 verse from the Qur’an in a day, you will have earned a total of 45 points (25+10+15) according to the point system (shown below).
NOTE TO PARENTS: Encourage your child to be more active as a Muslim. Encourage them to maintain the Ramadan Activities calendar and keep track of all their good activities during the month of Ramadan.
The age of the participant will be taken into consideration while evaluating their point collection.

The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together.
This is a program by the children for the children to encourage caring for others. Throughout Ramadan, children raise money for the needy and the poor. Their efforts are used to provide food, shelter, healthcare, education and emotional support to orphans around the world through ICNA Relief Canada.
Since 2006, the donations from our participants is being used to sponsor 27 orphans from Canada, Indonesia, Kashmir, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Kenya.
This program aims to expand your Islamic knowledge. Participants should study from the notes prepared by MuslimVille below, and memorize the Surah, Duas and other items listed for their group during the month of Ramadan. The study notes are unique for every year and separate for every age group.
This program is a great way to be engaged in Islamic learning during the month of Ramadan. In addition, learning from the study notes is a great way to collect points for the Ramadan Activities Challenge!
