Discover Ramadan is a popular event that invites non-Muslim neighbours and friends to the masjid to learn about Ramadan and why Muslims fast during this month. In 2019, the event was a success, with approximately 50-60 guests in attendance.
Presentations by Sister Kerry and Brother Hamza provided insight into the Islamic observance of Ramadan and sparked a lively question-and-answer session. Guests could ask questions about Ramadan and Islam, fostering greater understanding and respect between communities.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event has not been held since 2019. However, once restrictions are lifted, it is hoped that Discover Ramadan will once again be a successful gathering of people from different backgrounds, breaking bread and breaking down barriers.
The masjid aims to foster greater understanding and respect between communities by hosting these events, creating a more inclusive and harmonious society. So, be sure to attend a Discover Ramadan event in the future and experience the warmth and hospitality of the Islamic community during this particular time.
