Fasting Not Feasting

Fasting not feasting is a Ramadan campaign in advance of piety and against consumerism and gluttony.  As part of its ongoing community work, the group organise sporadic iftars for the homeless up and down the country.  The rules are simple – if you want to organise an Iftar, simply select a location, email the organisers and they will advertise the event and recruit volunteers through online social media.  This month has also seen events held in Birmingham, Manchester, Leicester and Cardiff.  So called ‘flashmob iftars’ have been reported in mainstream media including the BBC and The Guardian, providing the organisers with an opportunity to give Dawah about the broader community action that Islam inspires.
