Muslims observe the lunar month of Ramadan by fasting from dawn to sunset. For Muslims, it is a special month of increased repentance, prayer & charity.

One of the main features of that month is hospitality. Members of the Muslim community come together to break their fast, sharing food with friends and strangers.

Our monthly Lifting the Veil program for June is combined with our annual Taste of Ramadan dinner. This will also be an opportunity for our guests to meet our new Imam Jawad Rasul.

The Islamic Society of Augusta is extending the invitation to our friends and neighbors to join us in having our iftar, the meal which breaks the fast.

7:00 pm: Welcoming Guests
7:05 pm: “An Islamic Experience”; A video presentation
7:40 pm: “Ramadan: Past and Present” A Presentation by Imam Jawad Rasul
