As the holy month of Ramadan 2022 comes to an end, we would like to wish all our Muslim staff, volunteers, supporters, clients and local community a very happy and healthy Eid.
For the last month Muslims have fasted from dawn till dusk and it has been a time of deep spiritual observation, reflection and giving. As ever there has been amazing community spirit within our Muslim communities in the Bradford district and Craven to support each other.
Eid ul-Fitr is an important festival in the Islamic calendar and was started by the Prophet Muhammad himself. It is also known as ‘The Feast of Breaking the Fast’ and is celebrated to mark the end of Ramadan. Earlier this month, we published a blog from our SMI Programme Manager Masira Hans on Ramadan and mental health – take a read if you missed it.
In Bradford, an open-air event to celebrate will take place on Sunday 1 May and Monday 2 May. Eid in the Park, run by Islam Bradford, will be held in Infirmary Fields on Lumb Lane. Worshippers are invited to bring their prayer mat and a fold up chair to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet and join with the Eid Prayer.
We know that festive occasions can be a difficult time for some so please reach out if you need support.
You can call our freephone helpline Guide-Line on 08001 884 884 or speak to our team via live chat any day 12pm-12am.
Take a look at the Healthy Minds directory to find more local support.
