MATCHING FAMILIES FOR IFTAR
Enjoy an Iftar meal with a Muslim family!
Salaam Islamic Center wants to match and join families together for Iftar dinners during this Ramadan.
A centuries-old tradition is where Muslims invite their friends, neighbors, and colleagues to an Iftar meal. The goal is to share a good time, delicious food, and pleasant conversations around the table to form imperishable and rewarding relationships.
You can either be the host or a guest.
We designed this program for everyone who is interested in meeting new individuals and establishing new friendships with people of different backgrounds.
Some of the initial benefits will be:
Rewards are Open to Anyone
The Prophet (PBUH) said, ‘Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person’. [Tirmidhi]
Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, reflection, gratitude, and prayer for Muslims. Muslims around the globe respectfully welcome this blessed guest every year as Ramadan is when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received the initial revelations of the Holy Quran.
Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. During Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from dawn to sunset, and they invite friends and relatives daily to share an Iftar meal to break their daily fasting.
Eid-al-Fitr is regarded as a time to celebrate, with Muslims gathering their friends and family to show gratitude toward God following the previous month of reflection and appreciation. The holiday serves as an excellent reminder for Muslims to be grateful for what they have and to share with those who may be less fortunate.
Salaam Islamic Center is a non-profit organization with a vision of building a community where members of diverse faiths enjoy their freedom of belief and practice and commit to preserving the dignity of every human being.
Our mission is to serve the religious needs of local Muslims in Irvine, California.
To accomplish our mission, we strive to help Muslims increase their knowledge and understanding of Islam, offer resources for those interested in learning about Islam, and support interfaith dialogue among various faith groups.
