Aftaar Dinner - 10th June 2017
Our community had a wonderful time at the Ramadan get together this year on the 10th of June 2017. Most of our young children participated in the cupcake competition as well as some of the CMCT (Canterbury Muslim Community Trust) children. Children also recited the 99 names of Allah with the guidance of Uncle Ibrahim and Aunty Salwa. A presentation was given by Farial Savul which enlightened the children's knowledge about Ramadan and also shared benefits of fasting. We are very pleased and proud to say that the CMCT not only did they attended our function, but, also took equal part in making this even a success. It was very nice to see both the communities praying together as one Ummah. We are looking forward to seeing many more successful functions in the future Insha-Allah.
