This past Thursday, KARAMAH felt for the first time this month the true spirit of Ramadan. One of Ramadan’s greatest blessings is the gift of community, in which Muslims and people of other faiths from all walks of life come together during the holy month to eat, laugh and indulge in the company of old friends and new faces alike.
On August 2nd, KARAMAH held a community iftar at Masjid Muhammad in Washington, DC with more than 150 in attendance—including many friends of KARAMAH new to the Masjid Muhammad community. There were Muslims and people of other faiths. Sunnis and Shias. Others who had newly embraced Islam. All of whom had come together in this very special masjid to break bread, get to know one another, and to celebrate our universal humanity.
In sponsoring community events such as these, KARAMAH hopes to increase the scope of its reach by disseminating the message of equality and justice in Islam while simultaneously promoting greater cohesiveness within the Islamic community at large.
