“Fast With Muslims” is a nationwide campaign launched by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at to share the Ramadan experience and give Canadians an opportunity to experience what it’s like to fast! Ramadan is a very special month for Muslims across the world. In Ramadan, Muslims wake up everyday just before sunset to pray and keep a fast. Throughout the day, Muslims across the world completely refrain from eating and drinking, until sunset. At sunset, Muslims break their fast, pray and eat and drink with their families. In this month in particular, Muslims avoid partaking in anything that would be detrimental to their spiritual well-being, such as lying, quarrelling, swearing, etc.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada, through its dozens of mosques and prayer centres across the country, has set up "Iftar Dinners" (where we break our fast) for Canadians to experience. The nationwide campaign, "Fast With Muslims," consists of two primary options – stepping up to the challenge and fasting with Muslims, or joining us for a delicious dinner as we break our fast.
