The Muslim Student Union at Stanford is collaborating with fellow student organizations to host an Open Iftar on one of the first nights of Ramadan. We will begin with a short program where Muslim students will share stories of what Ramadan means to them and the Ramadan traditions that make the month so special. We will then break our fasts with dates and milk before Maghrib and then enjoy dinner on the lawn of White Plaza.
Ramadan is the Islamic Holy Month in which the Quran was revealed. Muslims fast from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset for the full month. Iftar is the meal with which the fast is broken at sunset. Around the world, Ramadan is a time where Muslim communities come together over meals and worship.
Whether you know nothing about Ramadan or you have been practicing it your whole life, please join us for iftar to celebrate the vibrant Muslim community here at Stanford.
This event is made possible through the generous contributions of our co-sponsoring organizations including:
Vice Provost for Student Affairs
Jewish Student Association
Asian American Students' Association
Stanford American Indian Organization
