Please join us at 8:00 PM on the evening of Saturday, June 18 for a Traditional Ramadan Iftar. We will learn about different Ramadan customs, discuss the impact of Ramadan on the Arab world and beyond, and share a delicious meal with old friends and new.

All across the Arab world, Muslims are preparing to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan. For an entire month, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and will break their fast with an iftar, or “breaking the fast.” Because Muslims make up a majority of the population in most Arab countries, the observance of Ramadan has great significance for the entire society. During Ramadan, Muslims invite their friends of all faiths to an iftar so that they can share in the celebration.

The event will be held at the Alif Institute located at 3288 Marjan Drive, Atlanta, GA 30340
