Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ramadan

star and CrescentThe Annandale Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee invites you to attend a discussion on the Muslim practice of Ramadan, an annual fast in which believers abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for a full month. Learn how Ramadan is practiced and celebrated in Muslim communities, and hear personal perspectives from believers about what this tradition means to them. A panel of speakers will each give a short talk, with a Q&A session to follow.

The speakers include:

  • Dr. Daoud Nassimi, Adjunct Associate Professor of Islam at NOVA
  • Imam Jamal Kakar, Madina Islamic Center of Springfield, VA
  • Taiba Haidari, NOVA student
  • William Pasko, NOVA student

As Ramadan is a time of giving in Muslim communities, items will also be collected for the Annandale campus Food Bank. If you are able, please bring a non-perishable food or personal care item to the event.

This event will be held virtually and in person on April 14, from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. at CA-302. Please click here to register.
