Iftar is the meal that Muslims eat to break their fast after sunset each day during the month of Ramadan. For Muslims who fast from sunrise to sunset during Ramadan, iftar is a joyous occasion and an opportunity to celebrate at the end of a day’s successful fasting. In Muslim culture, sharing the joy of celebrating Ramadan is highly valued regardless of whether people fast or not, and it is common for people of other faiths to receive an invitation to an iftar.
To share the joy of our Muslim students, as well as to foster cross-cultural understanding and multicultural symbiosis, the Graduate School of Global Studies will hold an Iftar Dinner Party in which a variety of Islamic dishes will be served.
The event will also help to further promote exchanges among members of the Doshisha community.
A Moslim prayer session is scheduled to be held before the party.
