Give Iftar and Sahur this Ramadan

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Whoever gives food to a fasting person with which to break his fast will have a reward equal to his, without it detracting in the slightest from the reward of the fasting person” Al-Tirmidhi

“It’s important that our children are given opportunities to learn about the different cultures, foods, traditions of the many different people God has made in our world,” Kashif Fakhruddin, the school’s principal, told Daily Herald.

“Food brings people together, so we look forward to a
fun-filled day with new snacks and treats to try.”

The third annual Muslims Around the World fair is set for 10
a.m. next Saturday.

Nearly 60 students will participate in the event, giving
snacks or treats from 28 countries where Muslims live.

Fakhruddin believes the event is important to allow students to learn about different cultures.

“It is through education and appreciation of our
diversity that we can become more strengthened and united as a community, and
therefore stronger in our pursuit of God,” Fakhruddin said.

The United States is on the list of featured countries, for
students to “recognize that Muslims have very much always been a part of
the fabric of our country,” Fakhruddin said.
