Every year, IARP invites the community to an Iraqi and American Community Ramadan Iftar Dinner. Join IARP to break fast with members of the local Iraqi community and learn more about Ramadan!
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of prayer, fasting, and charity-giving to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the "five pillars" of Islam, and is performed to learn compassion, self-restraint, and generosity. Iftar is the evening meal at sunset when Muslims end their daily fast during Ramadan.
