As you may be aware, Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic faith and a month of peace, sharing and love. In that spirit, it will be our honor to have you join us so we can get to know each other better as we break the fast together.

 

I leave you with these words from the Holy Quran : 

“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another”

 

Looking forward to seeing you!

 

In peace,
