Ramadan Suhoor Festival Returns to Dearborn

0 3

Dearborn Muslims and non-Muslims will gather for suhoor, the pre-dawn meal, on Fridays and Saturdays during the holy month of Ramadan, as Dearborn’s Ramadan Suhoor Festival returns to Metro Detroit after two-year hiatus caused by the COVID pandemic.

FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The festival is set to kick off on Friday from 11 pm to 3 am at the Sears parking lot at the Fairlane Town Center. It runs from April 8 to 30, Detroit Metro Times reported.

There will be over 50 vendors at the festival, decorations, giveaways, and Qur’an recitation.

Speaking to WWJ earlier this month about the festival, Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud said it has a “warm, welcoming climate for all who attend, whether you’re Muslim or not.”

“I Think it’s also a great opportunity to build bridges with other communities and for us to learn from one another,” he said.

Ramadan Suhoor Festival Returns to Dearborn - About Islam

Before the Suhoor festival existed, food trucks and vendors used to pop up on street corners and on plazas, catering to those who celebrate Ramadan. 

The festival is sponsored by Amity Foundation, Papaya Fruit Market and OSP/VHL. There’s a $1 cash cover charge for every entry, and all proceeds go to charity.

“Suhoor” is the meal taken before sunrise to help fasting Muslims sustain themselves until the meal that comes after sunset, “iftar.”

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Take Suhoor as there is a blessing in it.” Sahih al-Bukhari 1923.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar. It started on Saturday April 2 in most countries around the world, with only few countries starting the fasting month on Sunday.

Muslims dedicate their time during the holy month to become closer to Allah through prayer, self-restraint, and good deeds.
