Duyog Ramadan: A Unity Iftar Event




Please join the Philippine Consulate General in New York and Kinding Sindaw Heritage Foundation, Inc. for this celebratory event. For the second year in a row, Kinding Sindaw will be partnering with the Philippine consulate to promote the heritage of the Filipino Muslims and create a dialogue with this community that is lesser known within the Filipino community as a whole. This wonderful gathering is a potluck event, please feel free to bring food to share in breaking the fast.

The ninth month of the Islamic calendar is when the holy fasting month of the Muslim world is celebrated, Ramadan. It is said in the Five Pillars of Islam that fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sundown is required during the month of Ramadan. Within the Philippine, most of the Muslim people in the Philippines are from Mindanao. There are 13 ethnolinguistic Muslim tribes in Mindanao who will be fasting this Ramadan season.

Muslims and Christians come together to break the fast at sundown May 31, to symbolize unity amid growing Islamophobia, which is the conflict in Marawi city and all over the world. Thus it is a beautiful month to celebrate peace and harmony with the Muslim brothers and sisters across the nations.
