For the first time in many centuries religious festivals, observances and celebrations are being experience in very different ways due to the impact of COVID-19 and lockdown.
During the past few weeks, Easter for Christians and Passover for Jews were experienced and shared via streaming and digital technology. It was both very different but uniquely special in many unexpected ways!
On Thursday the Muslim annual observance of Ramadan begins – Ramadan is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam and lasts twenty-nine to thirty days, from one sighting of the crescent moon to the next. For most Muslin this involves fasting from sunrise to sunset.
Many Muslims work in frontline NHS & care services and due to the current pandemic, the long hours, plus the use of extensive PPE, the observance of fasting will be very difficult. We wish our Muslim brothers and sisters best wishes during Ramadan.
