When: Friday, October 13, 2006 - 5:30 PM  
Where: At the 519 Community Centre - 519 Church St. near Wellesley.  
What: Iftar is the breaking of the Fast during the holy month of Ramadan. During this month, Muslims around the world do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset. Iftar is when family and friends gather to celebrate the simple things that this world has to offer.

This is day 20 of Ramadan. Fasting in Toronto on this day is done from 6:10 AM until 6:40 PM.

 
Why: Ramadan is a month on the Muslim lunar calendar that begins from the flight of the Muslims from Mecca to Medina in search of Sanctuary and Human Dignity.

We are in the year 1427 AH.

Ramadan is the month when the first verse of the QurĂ n was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. This verse is known as "Iqra" or "Read".

 
Who: The iftar is open to all - Muslims and non-Muslims. We ask that paticipants bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation food bank.

Participants must confirm their participation by October 10, 2006 by sending an e-mail to: peaceiftar@muslimunion.ca or by submitting this form:

I will be there!

Name:
e-mail:
size of party: people (including myself).
             
 
How: Participants are not expected to Fast. However, they are welcome to have done so if they are interested and able to do so.

We will "walk" participants through the ceremonies of the Fast, prayer and introduce them to foods from Muslim cultures that are also traditional foods during Ramadan.

Participants are requested to bring a bring a non-alcoholic beverage or dessert. In addition, those who are able are requested to make a $5 donation to help defray costs.
