    Thursday, 7th March 2024-Imran Visit

    12 March 2024 (by nortoninhales)

     We had a visit from Imran the Imam this morning and he told us all about Ramadan and what it means to Muslims.

     The children were fascinated about how they follow the lunar calendar and how fasting makes them feel closer to Allah spiritually! Imran showed the children some Eid Mubarak cards and explained how it is an honour to commit to Ramadan and not a chore.

    Some of the children also tried a date, Imran explained that once the sun has set during Ramadan, Muslims eat a date before anything else because Muhammad ate dates during his fasting and it also helps to restore their sugars which have been lost during daylight hours! They went down extremely well!
