Understanding Islam

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and marked by the first sighting of a crescent moon. As a most blessed month, it is a time for reflection, prayer and renewal of faith.

During this month, Muslims worldwide fast from dawn to sunset, abstaining totally from food, drink, smoking and other sensual pleasures to complete one of the five pillars of Islam and to achieve greater self-discipline, self-purification, and compassion for those less fortunate.

Join us as we explore this holiday and its many traditions through displays, talks and family friendly activities in partnership with Benevolence Australia.
