Annual Interfaith Dinner 2018

Saturday, June 2, 2018

Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal for Muslims worldwide. Ramadan last for one whole Lunar month and is followed by Eid-ul-Fitr (Muslim Festival Marking end of Ramadan). During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food and drink from dawn to sunset. Fasting, practiced in every major religion, is a time to reflect, repent, and become spiritually pure, which, in turn, helps lead to societal peace, increased charity and service to the poor. It has been practice of Jesus, Moses and many Biblical Prophets.
On June 2nd, we, as members of Al-Amin Center, Muslim Community are holding Interfaith Ramadan Dinner at our Mosque. Community members will gather at sunset to break their fast as part of the typical Iftar dinner service.The public is also welcome to join their neighboring Muslims to partake in Ramadan festivities. Historically similar events are typically well received and attended by guests from various backgrounds including civic leadership, public officials, law enforcement officers, neighbors, friends of the community and more.
