The Big Iftar

This Ramadan, St Albans Big Iftar invites you to fast for one day,

On Wednesday 20 May experience a day like no other, and fast for the day with
your Muslim friends and neighbours.

17 Hours of no food and no water, are you up for the challenge?

In the month of Ramadan, we learn about ourselves both spiritually and mentally and reap the rewards of fasting. We become more appreciative of what little we have, which is more relevant now during lockdown.

So join your Muslim neighbours and fast for a day, and come together as one community, #alonetogther.

How do I take part?

  1. Sign up below to register and to receive your Iftar Goody Bag.
  2. Be ready at 3am on Wednesday 20 May to start the fast, a good nutritional meal and some thing to drink will be perfect. Porridge is best. 
  3. Fast starts at 3.15am and from that point on wards – the following rules apply
    1. Don’t eat any food 
    2. Don’t drink any liquids
  4. Break your fast at 8.56pm with a lovely meal when your hear the call to prayer on facebook live. Your goody bag will have a  few items to help break your fast
