The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has published advice for those who have to undertake Ramadan at home this year.

Ramadan at home guidance can be found on the MCB site and it includes a high-quality document in PDF format which can be downloaded and shared.

Ramadan 2020 takes place between 23/24 April and 23/24 May and is the holiest month of the Islamic year as it celebrates when the Qur’an was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

In addition to fasting during the hours of daylight and other abstinence Muslims around the world increase their prayer, give more to charity and take the opportunity to family ties.

Breaking the Ramadan fast

Of particular importance during the Covid-19 pandemic is the requirement to contact those who may be fasting alone, but this year much contact will have to be either virtual or from a safe two metre distance.

The video below is also worth a watch.

Good luck to everyone fasting in the East End, you have our total admiration – just remember to keep that social distancing going!
