Ramadan occurs in the 9th month of the Islamic lunar calendar, which is the holiest. It is observed by all the Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, spirituality, prayers and charity. For 29 or 30 days depending on that year, Muslims fast each day from dawn to sunset. Fasting includes refraining from eating and drinking any liquid all day. The Fasting begins after a predawn meal at 5:00 a.m. They break their fast exactly at the time of sunset, with a dinner called an Iftar dinner. It is a tradition both culturally and Islamic that the fast is broken with neighbors and friends every day.
The San Antonio Raindrop foundation is looking forward to breaking bread with the Unity Church of San Antonio CommUNITY. The evening’s events will include:
7:30 p.m.: Arrival and Mingle
7:45 p.m: Welcome by Raindrop Turkish House and Live Sufi and Art Demonstration
