Wake up! It’s the Ramadan Drummer


“Take Suhoor for there is blessing in it” Bukhari

It’s Ramadan and Adam loves this special time of year, but there’s a growing problem; people in Adam’s neighbourhood are not waking up for the pre-fast meal (Suhoor) or the dawn prayer (Fajr).

Sadly they are forgetting these important early morning activities for Ramadan, which have now become a distant memory.

Can Adam’s father help to wake the people up in time by rising to the challenge of becoming the neighbourhood waker-upper, the Ramadan Drummer?

Can he find the courage to continue an ancient legacy in a modern city?

A humorous, feel-good story with a heart-warming message that celebrates cultural heritage, service to the local community and bravery during hard times.

Through lively rhymes and vibrant illustrations children will learn about the importance of Suhoor and the Ramadan Drummer tradition, which was once the heartbeat of many Muslim communities during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Written by Mariam Hakim and illustrated by Dalia Awad.

You can read more about this widespread tradition across Muslim nations here and how the Ramadan Drummer role has been steeped in religious purpose, to help support Muslim communities to fast during the Holy Month.
