    Students, Faculty: Ramadan Events

    April 20, 2021

    Each year, about 1.9 billion Muslims fast for a month. But do you know why? Come join us Thursday, April 29, from 6:30-7:40 p.m. for Ramadan Around the World, a Zoom event organized by the University’s Department of World Languages and Cultures and presented by French Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Chama Laassassy and Arabic Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Belal Elkurd.

    Ramadan is usually the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is considered to be one of the holiest months in Islam. As part of observing Ramadan, Muslims throughout the world participate in a month of fasting, which involves observers not eating or drinking anything during daylight hours. Prayer is also a major component in observing Ramadan.

    If you have any questions about the event, do not hesitate to reach out to Hannah Jackson at hannah.jackson@scranton.edu. Please use this link to attend the event.

    We look forward to (virtually) seeing you!
