Trine Muslim Association hosts iftar dinner

April 05, 2023

About 40 people gathered in Club Z inside Trine University’s MTI Center on Friday, March 31, to celebrate the beginning of Ramadan by joining together for an iftar, a meal to break the fast, offered by the Trine Muslim Association.

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, began this year at sunrise on March 22 and will end with sunset on April 20. It is celebrated as the month during which the prophet Muhammad received the first revelations of the Quran.

During the monthlong holiday, Muslims are encouraged to reflect and make a special effort to follow the teachings of Islam. A key aspect is fasting from sunrise to sunset, during which participants take in no food or water to direct their thoughts away from worldly activities.
