What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islam. Muslims observe the month of Ramadan, to mark when Allah (or God) gave the first chapters of the Quran (Holy Book) to the Prophet Muhammad, during which period they fast – meaning that there is no eating or drinking during the hours of daylight.

Could you fast for a day?

To better understand fellow students and staff who are fasting, why not try fasting for a day yourself? All attendees who have fasted or plan to fast will be eligible for a £15 Just Eat voucher!* The event organisers will tell you how to claim on the day.
