It’s a brand new year, and we’re super excited to welcome Ramadan once again with you. Allahumma Balighna Ramadan!
This will be our second year celebrating Ramadan in the middle of a pandemic. While our hearts may be heavy and our mosques remain closed, our spirits can still rise above all and connect.
Let’s come together however we can: online, virtually, with physical distancing to help each other and bring relief to the collective. With this in mind, we want to help you make the best of this special month. We’ve put together a list of resources and initiatives to help get Ramadan Ready with us!
May these blessed days be a means for us to connect with our Lord and our community, and to share together in gratitude.
