How to celebrate Ramadan in ATX

Ramadan signifies the month when verses of the Quran were first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1,000+ years ago.

Ramadan begins tonight and will likely last until the evening of Friday, April 21.

For those of Muslim faith, Ramadan is a month of prayer, reflection, and daily fasting from dawn until dusk. The month ends with Eid al-Fitr, a feast to celebrate the end of the fast.

Here’s how to celebrate:

  • City-Wide Iftar | Sunday, April 2 | Asian American Resource Center, 8401 Cameron Rd.
    • Join the Minaret Foundation, Mayor Kirk Watson, and Councilmember Zohaib Qadri for an iftar catered by Bamboo Biryani. Tickets start at $25 each, or get a table for eight for $200.
