Interfaith Iftar dinner & Rohingya Fundraiser
Friday July 10, 7pm
Marlborough Park Community Hall, 6021 Madigan Dr NE, Calgary
People of all faith and no faith are invited in an event which hopes to unite Calgarians together in the pursuit of community building, Ramadan and bringing awareness to the humanitarian crisis in Burma on the Rohingya Muslims. Nothing brings people together more than breaking bread, and to do that during the Muslim tradition of Ramadan fast is even more special. Not only does it function as a bridge of interfaith in our polarized world, but it also gives us an opportunity to highlight the importance of fidelity to our own personal faiths, and garner an appreciation for the challenges Muslims face during Ramadan. This event will also open the opportunity to raise funds for the Rohingya refugees and highlight one of the most important tenant of Islam that is especially observed during Ramadan tradition that is “zakat” or charity.
