Getting the right amount of physical activity, time with family, and educational periods can be challenging during quarantine. We have created a schedule that can help you navigate your family’s time during quarantine.
This timetable is proposed by AMA for families to utilize their time and this should be under parents’ full discretion.
10:00 AM – 11:30 AM: Prepare for your Day
Brush your teeth, shower, and get ready for your day!
11:00 – 12:30 PM: Education
Getting ahead is always a great initiative, and thanks to the Ontario government here are some learning at home programs for children and teens.
12:30 – 1:00 PM: Qur’an
Daily Qur’an should be a necessity for you and your family. Spend at least 30 minutes a day memorizing, reading, or reciting the holy book of Allah.
Dhur Prayer – Time varies
1:30 – 2:30 PM: Reminders & Halaqas
