The Myriad Foundation are proud to present Taste Ramadan – a simple idea to encourage members of the public to join in and experience some of the the blessings of the month of Ramadan.
On Saturday 10 June, nine different mosques scattered in different areas throughout Manchester are opening their doors to the community to take part in an Iftar. The Iftar is the meal eaten by Muslims after sunset following a day of fasting, where they have abstained from consuming food and drinking fluids from the break of dawn.
To experience some of the blessing of Ramadan, why not take the challenge and fast with us from the break of dawn till sunset followed by a visit your local mosque where you are invited to enjoy the evening meal with the local community. Don’t worry if it’s something that you can’t do, your local community still invites you to come and share the iftar meal.
For Taste Ramadan, the local mosques will be providing:
● A short talk about fasting and the month of Ramadan
● A guided tour of the mosque
● An opportunity to observe the salah – the ritual prayer
● Iftar – shared evening meal as the community breaks their fast
This is a great opportunity to join your local community and experience the blessings of Ramadan by accepting the invitation to be our guest for an Iftar meal at a Mosque near you.
