The holy month of Ramadan is a month of fasting, introspection, and prayer for Muslims, the followers of Islam. It is celebrated as the month during which Muhammad received the initial revelations of the Quran, the holy book for Muslims. This year, Ramadan/Ramzan started on the evening of Monday, April 12 and will end when the sun sets on Wednesday, May 12. During this time, Muslims abstain from food and drink from dawn to dusk, including water.

The practice of fasting can teach us self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate, thus encouraging actions of generosity and compulsory charity.

To better understand Ramadan and show respect to everyone who practices Muslim in our multicultural community, AMCCU in collaboration with Generation 1 Migrant Association Inc (Gen1) and Aussie Malaysian TV (AMTV) is hosting a Celebration of Giving and Forgiving digital event to mark the end of the holy month Ramadan.

Join us and learn more about the rich Muslim culture. To know more about this event, visit https://gen1.org.au/ramadan-eid-al-fitr/ or write to info@gen1.org.au. We will be livestreaming the event on our Facebook page, Instagram and our YouTube channel.

We take this opportunity to thank Multicultural Affairs of VIC Government for making this event possible and the Minister Ros Spence who has offered ongoing support and encouragement!

Ramadan Kareem– generous Ramadan.
