    Attendants listened to a talk on the virtues of Ramadan by Maulana Talha, the imam of the mosque. He spoke about the importance of the fasting month to Muslims, hosted a tour of the mosque and invited people to the Iftar meal.

    Ramadan is the holy month of fasting when Muslims avoid all food and drink between sunrise and sunset. Moreover, they’re also encouraged to increase their charitable efforts and doing good deeds.

    Social and interfaith gatherings for iftar meals have become a basic part of the holy month of Ramadan during which people come together.

    Muslims lead similar initiatives to host iftar gatherings worldwide during the month of Ramadan.

    Since the start of Ramadan, the East London Mosque has been delivering iftar meals cooked on-site to 500 people regardless of faith.

    Moreover, Islamic Relief hosted a huge iftar gathering at Finsbury Park Mosque attended by MPs, government representatives, and hundreds of people.
