The month of Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection where Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and spend time in prayer. Traditionally, the daily fast is broken with an “Iftaar” meal shared with family and others in the community. Now that Ramadan is underway, Austin’s local Muslim communities are offering two special opportunities for non-Muslims to experience this important part of their religious practice.
The Islamic Ahlul Bayt Association Al Mahdi Center (IABA) invites you to a special Interfaith Ramadan Iftaar. Aside from the shared meal, there will be readings from The Qur’an and comments from by Sheikh Jafar Muhibullah.
The North Austin Muslim Community Center (NAMCC) is hosting a Ramadan Open House with an Iftaar dinner. In addition to enjoying the meal, visitors learn more about the meaning of Ramadan and the role it plays Muslim practice.
