Ramadan is a month during which healthy Muslims abstain from food, drink
and other sensual pleasures from dawn to sunset. It is a month of spiritual
reflection and renewal and a time to reach out the community, particularly
to those in need.

As Muslims it is our duty to be charitable and giving back to our community
is one way we can help those in needs and build bridges of
understanding. During this month Muslims focus on improving themselves and
on the less fortunate in society, said CAIR Florida executive director,
Altaf Ali.
