Ramadan 2023: The first issue of Ramadan Journal is out

The first issue of the Ramadan Journal is now out. You can read it online.

Our Ramadan Journal project was a project we had initiated during the COVID-19 pandemic, and one we could have never assumed would grow so vast! 

The Ramadan Journal’s roots are in the belief that “Ramadan” is more than a lunar month in which Muslims fast as a solitary act of worship; more so, it is a month of action and community. Our Ramadan Journal is aimed at all. For us at the Dialogue Society, we have coined this “Ramadanification,” a phrase we refer to a lot throughout Ramadan and will do so too in this journal. How does one become Ramadan? What are the values of Ramadan? And what implications do these have for our role in our wider societies as Muslims: these are questions we ponder over. Our journal, however, as mentioned above, is for all; whether you are a Muslim, of another or hold no faith at all, whatever your lifestyle, you are welcome. 

Thank you for embarking on our journal journey this Ramadan with us. We hope you enjoy reading and engaging with the material in our journal (and even have a moment to enjoy the delicious recipes or creative arts!).

Why not join us for iftar this year?

As Ramadan 2023 approaches, it is time to start thinking about how we will be celebrating this special time with friends and family. One of the most cherished traditions of this holy month is the breaking of the fast, or Iftar, at sunset with others. And that’s where IftarMe comes in.

IftarMe is a project that brings people together to share an Iftar experience. Our volunteer families prepare delicious meals for their guests at iftar, with whom they will then share the fast-breaking experience. Our volunteers are passionate about sharing their love for Iftar and spreading the spirit of generosity and hospitality that is at the heart of this special time.

For those of you who are new to IftarMe, it is a unique opportunity to taste Iftar meals prepared by Muslim volunteers and learn about Ramadan. When you choose to attend an Iftar at a volunteer’s home, you will come together and experience Iftar in a new and meaningful way.

Over the past few years, IftarMe has brought countless people together and provided a special Iftar experience. This year, we are excited to continue this tradition and see how the IftarMe project continues to bring people together and foster a sense of community.

So, why not join us for IftarMe this year? Let us experience Iftar in a new and meaningful way and make this Ramadan a truly special and memorable one! We cannot wait to see how IftarMe will bring people together this year.

IftarME Participation

Enjoy the breaking of the fast and enjoy a meal with an accompanying family.

Ramadan 2022: The fourth issue of Ramadan Journal is out

We are elated to celebrate together another Eid together this year, marking the end of Ramadan. 

To all our friends and volunteers celebrating, may this Eid be filled with pleasure and happiness for you and your family. May your fasts, prayers, and charitable efforts throughout the month of Ramadan be accepted, and may you reach another Ramadan. 

After the hardships of the lockdowns, over the past two years, we were fortunate to come together and celebrate our diverse communities spirit under the theme of “Rekindling the Community Spirit”. 

We facilitated community iftars and IftarMe iftars this year illustrating our united committedness to fostering cohesion in society. May this Ramadan passing us now mark a new beginning of a rekindled community and our efforts which we hope to carry into the upcoming 11 months until Ramadan comes to us again. 

Eid Mubarak and we hope you enjoy the read!
