Muslims across the globe and closer to home in Hamilton are marking the end of Ramadan.
Over 3,000 worshippers are expected to gather at Hamilton Mountain Mosque over the course of the day. A series of prayers mark the sacrifice of the holy month that sees Muslim’s fast from dusk to dawn. The idea is to show solidarity with the world’s hungry and also dedication and devotion to Allah.
“This is the occasion to thank God for all the blessings he has given us and for all the blessings we are aware of and the ones we aren’t aware of,” said Ali Taher Ghouse, president of the Muslim Association of Hamilton.
The Muslim Association partnered this year with The Good Shepherd food bank. Through their fasting they encouraged the donations for the hungry from all denominations across the city.
