The Canterbury Mosque in Giles Lane

Canterbury Mosque holding community event

The Canterbury Mosque is holding a community event to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.

Visitors are invited to the building in Giles Lane at the University of Kent for a meal.

Ramadan is the Muslim month of fasting which marks the first revelation of the Koran to the prophet Muhammad.

Imam Ihsan Khan said: “As you may or may not know your Muslim neighbours and Muslims all around the world will soon be entering the month of Ramadan.

“During these 30 days Muslims will give up food and water from sunrise to sunset.”

Residents are invited for the meal at 8.30pm on Friday, May 25 for the breaking of the fast, known as Itfaar.

They will also be able to learn about the Mosque’s plans for a £300,000 extension. It has so far raised £150,000. Visit the Mosque’s website for more information.
