Ramadan Mubarak

15th April 2021
Wishing all Muslims in Arbury, Cambridge, and across the globe who are celebrating the month of Ramadan, a healthy and happy year ahead. Ramadan Mubarak.
Ramadan is the Arabic name for the ninth month in the Islamic calendar.
The month of Ramadan begins with the sighting of the new moon. 
Muslim countries are spread across a large geographical area, from Indonesia to Morocco, meaning some Muslims may see the new moon earlier than others.
Fasting is considered to be an act of worship, which enables Muslims to strengthen their spiritual health and self-discipline.
Muslims have an early morning meal before dawn, called suhoor, or sehri.
They break their fast after sunset with the evening meal, called iftar or fitoor.
The end of Ramadan is marked with a celebration called Eid. 
In school, we traditionally celebrate Eid with a very special party for the whole school, including friends and family. This year our celebrations will have to be a little different.
