CAIR-PA Holds Sharing Ramadan Events

(PHILADELPHIA, PA, 9/12/07) – The Pennsylvania chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-PA) is pleased to announce that Muslim communities in the Delaware Valley will host ‘Sharing Ramadan’ events throughout the month of Ramadan, which starts on Thursday September 13, 2007.

“These events allow American Muslims to share and celebrate the importance of the month of Ramadan with people of all faiths,” said Aliya Khabir, CAIR-PA Philadelphia executive committee member.

“Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic lunar calendar when fasting, charity, prayer and peace is prescribed for all Muslims. Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and break their fasts with a meal after sunset prayers; they invite friends and family to their homes and mosques to share meals together at this special time of the year.”
