Over 200 women and children gathered for an evening of connection and warmth on Tuesday 22 May at the MWA Women’s Ramadan Iftar in Lakemba.

It was a special evening that included adhkar (remembrance of Allah) before Maghrib, outdoor Maghrib prayers in congregation, and a delicious homemade meal that nourished both the body and the soul.

Maghrib at the Iftar

One of the highlights of the evening was witnessing the leadership among some of the young girls who have been mentored in the MWA SAYIT Girl’s Youth Program.

The SAYIT girls coordinated the children’s program of fun craft activities, a challenging Ramadan quiz, and prize giveaways.  It was great to see leadership in action, and the girls did a fantastic job.
