OKLAHOMA As Ramadan knocks the doors, Oklahoma Muslims are busy putting final touches on several interfaith events, open mosque days shared iftars, and speeches which they will host during the holy fasting month.

We always want to offer opportunities for people to come and learn about our faith. Plus, well treat them to good food, Adam Soltani, executive director of the Islamic Society and the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma chapter (CAIR-OK), told News Oklahoma.

Ramadan is the holiest month in Islamic calendar. It is expected to start this year on Wednesday, May 16.

In Ramadan, adult Muslims, save the sick and those traveling, abstain from food, drink, smoking and sex between dawn and sunset.

Muslims dedicate their time during the holy month to become closer to Allah through prayer, self-restraint, and good deeds.

Coming this year on May 16, the host whether is not the main concern for Muslims.

Imad Enchassi, senior imam of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, said he and many other Muslims are concerned they will actually fast for longer periods of time when Ramadan falls during spring and summer because the days are longer.

But, Enchassi looks at it as more opportunities to reflect on God.

I say think of it as spending time with the beloved the longer the better, he said...


Think Win-Win for a better world for all...
