Ramadan 2023 Contest - 30 Martyrs in 30 Days


This is a 3 credit course which will start on March 22, 2023 and end on April 20, 2023. 


The theme for the contest this upcoming holy month of Ramadan is to remember the martyrs of Islam who have sacrificed their lives and shed their blood to water the tree of Islam. Without the sacrifices of the martyrs, Islam would not flourish the way we see it today, by God’s Grace. Allah the Almighty praised the station of martyrs (Shuhada) many times in the Quran, such as this verse: “And do not speak of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead; nay, they are alive, but you do not perceive.” [2:154]


One way of showing our appreciation to the respected martyrs of Islam and to set their affairs alive, as indicated in this verse, is to learn more about them and seek inspiration from the struggles encountered in their lives. This Ramadan contest is an attempt to achieve that goal through the 30 day contest.


Our martyrs cannot be enumerated; however, 30 martyrs have been selected from diverse backgrounds to learn about them and pluck lessons to apply in our own lives. Every day you will learn about one martyr. A minimum of one question for an unknown martyr will be presented daily in a riddle format. Student will be challenged to conduct research to identify the name of the martyr and share reflections of inspiration from that martyr. Short written and/or audio and/or video summaries will be uploaded daily to confirm the answer to the question of the day and and provide further explanation and background knowledge for that honorable martyr. 


Teenagers and adults are strongly encouraged to register for this program.

Registration fee for this program is $30 which will be contributed directly as a donation to charity organization, Kareema Care, and will be allocated specifically to support a campaign for 'Those in Need'. Since the focus of this contest is to learn about our martyrs, our request is that you dedicate the reward of your donation in honor of the martyrs of Islam.
