Please join us for The St Albans Big Iftar
Ramadan is here and the Muslim community of St Albans are set for another year of fasting between dawn and dusk. St Albans Big Iftar would like to invite you to our 4th community Iftar to be held in Fleetville Recreation Ground on 23 April 2022 from 6.00pm – 9.30pm.
The St Albans Big Iftar is possible with Grant funding from St Albans City & District Council and sponsored by Pri Pri Original Hatfield Road, Room for Desert and Kimaya Noodle & Sushi Bar.
What is Ramadan & Iftar? Ramadan is a month in the Islamic calendar when Muslims fast from dawn to sunset for thirty days and runs from 2 April – 1 May 2022. It is a month of spiritual reflection, personal development, charity, and community. Ramadan gives us the perfect opportunity to reach out to our neighbours and strengthen friendships.
Iftar is a special daily meal at the end of each day when fasting finishes. Every community & culture has its own special traditions during Ramadan, and we want to make the St Albans Iftar a new tradition for the entire community.
The St Albans Iftar will be an open event for the whole community to attend and to share in the breaking of the fast. The evening will include something for everyone, including mendhi, calligraphy workshops, and activities for children.
This will be followed by the call to pray, which signals the end of the day, the fast and the commencing of the Iftar.
