*The Big Iftar*
For the last eleven years, the Muslim Students Association at UQ has organised evening breakfast meals for fasting students every night in the month of Ramadaan. For the last ten years, the MSA has held a special annual gathering in Ramadaan inviting the broader UQ community to experience the amazing atmosphere of Ramadaan. This year, the MSA once again opens its doors to the wider UQ community to host a wonderful event — the Big Iftaar — an awesome multi-cultural event attended by students and staff from all over the world!
WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE HOSTING THE BIG IFTAAR AGAIN THIS YEAR!
*Highlights of The Big Iftaar*
– Athaan – call for the evening prayer. This call is made in Arabic with special words that are used by Muslims all over the world.
– Everyone breaks their fast, usually with a very light meal of dates, other fruits, entrees and water/juice.
– Evening prayer – everyone lines up in straight lines facing the direction of Mecca for the prayers. Everyone prays in synchrony, led by the Imam.
– Main Iftar meal – this is the main course featuring delicious foods from all over the world.
The Muslim Students Association of the University of Queensland would like to acknowledge the generous support of our members to run this event.
