“We are delighted to mark this blessed month and present our Ramadan Festival and series of landmark Open Iftar events highlighting the remarkable contributions and legacy the Muslim world has made to British culture.”

Tufail Hussain, UK Director, Islamic Relief UK, Charity Partner of Ramadan Tent Project, said: “We are once again delighted to be joining hands with the Ramadan Tent Project this year.”

“Coming together with the local community and sharing a meal after a day of fasting will be very special. The open iftar is welcome to everyone and will take place at iconic venues across the nation. A diverse community coming together and strengthening relationships is the true spirit of the holy month,” he added.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.

In Ramadan, adult Muslims, save the sick and those traveling, abstain from food, drink, smoking and sex between dawn and sunset.

Muslims dedicate their time during the holy month to become closer to Allah through prayer, self-restraint, and good deeds.
