Multicultural NSW wishes everyone observing Ramadan a safe, blessed and peaceful holy month.
This time of year is marked with prayer, sacrifice, reflection, renewal of faith and charity. It’s also traditionally spent with extended family, friends and community to break the fast at the iftar table.
But to help slow the spread of COVID-19, we need to stay home and spend this special time with our immediate households this year.
Places of worship, including mosques, continue to remain closed to the public. Religious services can be streamed and broadcast.
Connecting with your religious community, extended family and friends online can be just as meaningful.
As you observe Ramadan at home this year, know you are saving lives and making our community stronger.
