- Attend the evening IFTAR—break the fast gathering at RCNV from 7:15-9:30 for ceremony, Middle Eastern Food, and dialogue. Please click here to pre-register – very important so we can plan the meal. Dinner will require a sliding scale donation with no-one turned away.
Ramadan (/ˌræməˈdɑːn/; Arabic: رمضان Ramaḍān, IPA: [ramaˈdˤaːn]; is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.
