Fasting ONLY for two and half hours before breaking the fast.

I'm not the one who was fasting only two hours before breaking the fast today. It's Fathini who did it. She told me that some of her friends in the kindy, were fasting today. So, after I fetched her and Hafizah, she said she wanted to try fasting from 5 p.m. until it was time to break the fast. I didn't want to discourage her from doing that though it's not really what we are supposed to do if we want to fast. She's 5 years old now, I want to slowly teach her about fasting and let her understand of the whole concept. May be tomorrow, I better ask her to join us when we have our early morning Sahur. And then ask her to refrain herself from eating and drinking anything until afternoon. Well, that's how I was taught to practice fasting when I was little. I started practising when I was 5 years old too. But I only managed to fast for half day in three consecutive days.

What about you? When was the first time you started to fast? How do you teach and train your kids to fast? I would love to know about your experiences too. Maybe I can get a tip or twos on how to train my eldest daughter to fast this year.

Well, back in 1985 when I was in Std 1, I started by fasting for half day. N bf, I only took a late lunch after coming back from school.

No experience on our dotter. At 3 she's still too young to fast. However I guess for Fathini the half-day kickstart is adequate coz I don't think a 5 yr old can manage a full day yet.
Maybe can relate a few stories on rewards for those fasting, to encourage her up. :)

Yushida: that's a good idea. I'll give it a go.

Hanie: betul tu. train sikit2 baru diaorg larat nak puasa penuh.
