Following last years successful interfaith event entitled 'The Redemptive suffering of Hussein son of Ali and Jesus son of Mary', Leicester Jamaat would like to once again take the opportunity to invite you and other members of your community for another event focussed on the month of fasting.
This is entitled 'ONE DAY OF INTERFAITH FASTING' on Saturday 4th August 2012 within the Holy month of Ramadhan.
The event requests that all attendees keep an optional ONE DAY fast for the purpose of attaining closeness to God. The fast may be a fruit fast, a water fast, simply keeping away from something enjoyable for one day, or giving up a bad habit consciously for just one day... and if you are up for it, you may also want to try fasting without food or water from dawn to dusk as we do and engage yourself in prayer through the day. This will be followed by a programme on interfaith fasting on the day beginning at 7.00pm and ending in breaking your fast at dusk with iftaar.
The highlight of the programme will be set of two theatrical performances entitled 'The FAST of Maryam and Isa' running time 40 min. Leicester Jamaat look forward to hosting you once again and hope for your support in this event for the cause of bringing our communities together and deliberating on our similarities.
Along with being the month of prayer, fasting and other benefits, this is also the month of UNITY and we hope to encourage this as the main aim of the event.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a text message at 07958310657 to reserve your place at the event. Please indicate the names and organisations of all participants.
