In honor of Ramadan coming to an end, GLIDE Communications Associate, Humera Shaikh, and her sister, Fayeeza, share one of their favorite Ramadan recipes – Potato puff pastries!
Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic Calendar and is observed by Muslims all over the world. It is a sacred month of fasting, worship, charity and community. The purpose of fasting is to practice gratitude and to cultivate empathy for the less fortunate. Eid al-Fitr, which translates to “Festival of Breaking the Fast,” marks the end of Ramadan. It is celebrated during the first three days of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar. Eid is an occasion for special prayers, family visits, gift-giving and charity.
Eid Mubarak to everyone who is celebrating!
