Blessed Ramadan!

During the month of Ramadan, followers of Islam abstain from food and water from dawn to dusk, engage in prayer and spiritual reflection, refrain from unholy thoughts and actions, and give generously to charity. Celebrating each other's holidays has become a way for the United Religions Initiative family to show mutual respect and appreciation. Learn more about Ramadan.


Ramadan Mubarak. We celebrate with our Muslim sisters and brothers the revelation of the Holy Quran to the Prophet Muhammed, may peace be upon him, and thereby to the world as a blessing for us all. Ramadan is a time for reflection and prayer, a time for family and friends, a time for remembering those who struggle in the world around us, and a time to align oneself with the spiritual principles of peace within each of us and in the world around us. These beautiful teachings at the heart of Islam are a gift for which we are so very grateful. A blessed Ramadan to all.

Peace... Victor
