I was extremely fortunate to be invited to the Ramadaan Iftaar on Saturday, 19th May at Cambourne Hub. I must admit that it was magical and really special where I felt exceptionally honoured to be part of this celebration, because it ensured me how the community work together.
It was indeed a wonderful evening. I had an extremely educational time which I found fascinating and delightful. I felt extremely privilege and honoured to be in attendance.
It was just something which I will never forget. I feel extremely honoured to have been there.
And if you haven’t been invited then ask somebody because I know this, you would be told yes, come along because people want to explain and want to show what they do. You can ask any questions.
I asked some basic questions – why do you do this, why you do that to some of the most eminent people, and they were delighted to explain why that happens.
It was really an eye opener for me to see first time ever in my life Muslims praying live in congregation. I felt exceptionally honoured person to witness this religious practice of Muslims.
I do hope, I get invited again, and I hope I get invited for Eid celebrations, I hope to get invited for everything, I hope to get invited for all these magical events.
