About Ramadan: Ramadan is the ninth month of Islamic calendar. The Holy book of Muslims, the Quran was sent down from Heaven as guidance for humankind and also as a direction and a means to attain salvation during Ramadan. For the entire month, Muslims fast with no water or food during the daytime. The day starts with eating breakfast before sunrise. At sunset, Muslims break the fast with dates and water. After breaking the fast Muslims perform the sunset prayer. After the prayer we have a meal called Iftar with family and friends.
Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated for three days after Ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr is to spread happiness and love all around. Muslims visit their friends and relatives homes to wish a happy Eid by saying, "Eid Mubarak." Eid, as it is often simply referred to, is the festival when Muslims wear new clothes, exchange sweets and gifts and eat delicious food. This is also a great opportunity to share the blessings and good fortune with all, especially needy families.
American Muslim Voice Foundation was founded in July 2003 by American Muslims to work for and with all Americans. We work with Muslim, multi-faith and community organizations, groups and individuals who share our vision of a peaceful, harmonious and inclusive world.
We deeply believe in fostering friendships among all Americans by bridging the cultural and religious gap. Every day we promote new relationships and nurture old ones because our country’s safety, security and peace depend on our getting to know each other. We will continue our quest to build an inclusive and beloved world, where all of us will feel safe and at home.
