As many of you know, the holy month of Ramadan began at sunset yesterday, April 2, 2022, and lasts until May 2, 2022.
Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it marks the month that the Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him).
During the holy month of Ramadan, many Muslims fast from dawn to sundown, then gather together – in mosques, homes, restaurants, and elsewhere – to break their fast each evening of the month. Sometimes dinners, called Iftars, are small family affairs, while others are more festive gatherings of larger groups.
During this sacred time of fasting, it’s important for our community to be attentive and aware of the needs of our Muslim neighbors.
To all our Muslim neighbors, Ramadan Kareem.
