Experience Ramadan for New and Non Muslims!

Posted on: 16 August 2012

Inspiring Grace in conjunction with The Burnley Faith Centre and Building Bridges Burnley was pleased to present “Experience Ramadan” on Wednesday 15th August.

The evening started with a short recitation of the Holy Quran with the following verse:

"O mankind! We created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know and honor each other (not that you should despise one another). Indeed the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most righteous." Chapter 49, Verse 13

Then Inspiring Grace volunteer Shakeel Ahmed presented a short, lively talk on the physical benefits of fasting and its spiritual dimensions. Here are the slides from the presentation:

This was followed by the opening of the fast and the complete meal, before the Non-Muslims were encouraged to watch the performance of the sunset prayer (al-maghrib).
