Event description
An Interfaith Iftar to bring different faiths and communities to break bread together

About this Event

Muslim Sisters of Éire (MSOE) will be hosting an Interfaith 'Iftar' Dinner during the Islamic month of Ramadan. Ramadan is integral to the Islamic faith and is highlighted by the abstention from any food or drink from dawn to sunset. It is a month by which Muslims work to cultivate self-discipline, as well as exercise excellence in character. It is a time of great spirituality and connection to God.

At MSOE, we hold the firm belief that it is our communal obligation to establish and maintain strong relationships and friendships with those individuals, who have accepted the responsibilities of leadership in our communities. It is vital that we remind ourselves and our neighbours of the obligation that we have to one another so as to nurture the brotherhood/sisterhood which is vital to the progression and strengthening of our society. Unity is key to the success of any society, and this begins with a willingness to join hands on common ground.

We hope you can join us in breaking bread on this evening as we discuss the importance of unity and the role that we each play in setting aside differences in order to eradicate bigotry and intolerance in our communities.
