CAIR-OH: MUSLIMS FEED THE HUNGRY
The Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati and the Council on American Islamic Relations Cincinnati Office are co-sponsoring the annual "Feed the Hungry" program Sunday at 7:25 p.m. on 13th Street between Vine and Race streets in Over-the-Rhine, near the Al As-hab Islamic Center.
"As we observe Ramadan, it is imperative for us to realize the sacrifices that others make every day," said Shakila Ahmad, a trustee at the Islamic Center. "Sharing food is an integral part of the lessons of Ramadan."
Observing Ramadan through abstinence and fasting from food and water during daylight is one of the five pillars of Islam. The month continues through Oct. 24.
