The holy month of Ramadan began this week – a time for good deeds and reflection for Muslims.
For many of the millions of Muslims living and working in the United States, it’s also a time to think of family and friends back home.
There are a myriad of ways to honor and celebrate the holy month in America. Mosques throughout the U.S. provide a place to gather and pray, and also act as a community center where members can interact and break fast. If you’re looking for a way to share a good deed with family back home, consider sending money to help with financial needs.
If you’re new to the U.S. it’s important to find a mosque near you for Friday noon prayer. It will be a great way to find camaraderie and make important connections to help you adjust to your “second home.” If you need advice on looking for a home, a job, or just need to find someone to share their experiences being part of a mosque near you will be helpful.
