On 6th July 2015, we held our annual non-Muslim Iftaar Meal for the 3rd consecutive year.

Sawm is the 4th pillar of Islam, to fast during the month of Ramadan, and IDC wanted to continue to invite non-Muslims during the holy month and offer them to share in our Iftar, and to share with them the challenge of fasting for a day (or half a day)!  There were short presentations on Islam, Ramadan, Muslims, poetry, and the opportunity for our guests to tell us how they found it and share with everyone their experience, and we distributed gift boxes explaining more about our beautiful religion at the end.

On 15th July 2014, we held our annual non-Muslim Iftaar Meal.

Our holy month of Ramadaan is the perfect opportunity to teach our non-Muslim friends, colleagues and associates what it’s all about. IDC invited local councilors, school teachers and members of the local community to partake in an iftaar meal with short presentations on Islam and gift boxes explaining more about our beautiful religion!
