As you may know, the Ramadan fast is performed to learn discipline, self-restraint and generosity, while obeying God’s commandments. Fasting is one of the “five pillars” of Islam (along with the declaration of faith, daily prayers, charity, and pilgrimage to Makkah). Because Ramadan is a lunar month, it begins about eleven days earlier each year. The end of Ramadan will be marked by communal prayers called “Eid ul-Fitr,” or the Feast of the Fast-Breaking. Muslims look forward to Ramadan as a period of spiritual reflection, renewal, and community service, and Iftars like this are an essential part of our celebration and our community outreach.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family, or your representatives, to join us on July 12.
PEACE, SHALOM, SALAAM
