Mahe Ramadhan Lantern

In darkness we can’t see. Lets put on a light. This allows us to see so much! The Holy Quran is a light for us. It helps us to so so much. Rasulullah (s) revealed ayaat after ayaat of the Holy Quran so people could understand how to live their lives better and to believe in one God. The Quran is light. It guides us. Read the last part of the verse Surat al Anfal, (7:157), “… and follow the light which has been sent down with him.”

As you make your lantern and add the lovely light, see how it illuminates. Enjoy lightning up your lantern all through Mahe Ramadhan. As you do, remember how the Quran illuminates and is the light to see. Watch the tutorial for ideas on how to design your lantern.
