Iftar Westerkerk x Fatih Moskee x NC 27 March 2024 17:45 - 21:00

Excited to join an Iftar this Ramadan? The Westerkerk and the Fatih Mosque are collaborating with NEWConnective to bring you an interreligious exploration of fasting this Lent and Ramadan. Please note: the language of this evening will be Dutch.

Always wondered why people fast during Ramadan? Or what fasting means for other people's spiritual life? Or how people fast?Come to the Westerkerk on March 27 and find out! The evening will start at the Westerkerk, where we will engage in dialogue about each other's fasting practices. Why do we fast during Ramadan and Lent? How do we do that? What does it bring to your spiritual life? Are there any differences or similarities between the Islamic and the Christian way of fasting?

After this dialogue, we will move to the Fatih Mosque to have the Iftar together. Here, some more people will join; the members of the interreligious dialogue group in Amsterdam, of which the Fatih Mosque is a part. After the Iftar, which we will have in the beautiful prayer room of the Fatih Mosque, the imam will lead the prayer ensuing Iftar. The text of the prayer will be provided for those who don't participate in prayer.
