Welcome to the dining table.
During the month of Ramadan, we encounter many small yet significant moments that define our spiritual experiences. One defining moment for most of us (and one we may often take for granted) is that of Iftar.
And while iftar is valuable in reminding us of our blessings, we tend to forget the beautiful gift that Allah (SWT) has given us: the moment in which we sit around a table (or on the floor) with our friends and family, renewing intention and breaking our fasts together.
Sadly, this beautiful moment can feel immensely lonely and quiet for those who are away from home, or who have reverted to Islam away from their families. It is in this moment that we can locate where we stand with our surrounding world in conjunction to our spiritual universe. And now with lockdown, many more of us may feel the burden of this solitude.
This section is for all.
RMC’s ‘Iftar Reflections’ has been created as a discussion board for us to connect with each other. Here, you will be able to discuss your lockdown iftar moments, the little things you have done to make this experience more enlightened for yourselves and others, and how you are coping on this journey of isolation.
On top of that we will also be hosting a Virtual Iftar on Zoom.
We don’t want anyone to feel left out this Ramadan, and with us all stuck indoors (some still with all or part of their families) we will be hosting a Virtual Iftar. Here we will sit and break our fasts together; sharing, talking and most importantly – eating together.
Even if you are at home with your families, this is a moment to share with friends in our community
This will be hosted on Zoom every fortnight insha’Allah.
We look forward to welcoming you into our homes.
