This year’s month of Ramadan is like no other. At this time of year, we are typically gathering at our mosques with family and friends, participating in communal and religious gatherings and activities such as the recitation of the holy Quran and Ramadan Du’as and prayers and breaking our fasts together. It is a time of unity where we pray together for each other and for the whole of humanity.
Like many communities around the world, we are facing unprecedented COVID-19 challenges. We are all asked to do our part to help stop the spread of this global pandemic by practicing physical distancing and staying home as much as possible.
An essential part of the fasting in the holy month of Ramadan is the spirit of sharing and while we aren’t able to share in person because of physical distancing, we can share our stories and traditions online!
