May 15, 2018 – Faith & Religion: Ramadan, The Meaning of Fasting
Season 11, Episode 20
Have you wished your Muslim friends “Ramadan Mubarak” on this first day of Ramadan? On this Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, the traditions of Ramadan, and the meaning of fasting. The season of Ramadan has begun for the Muslim community. We’ll take a deep dive into the practices, traditions, and beliefs surrounding this month-long observance which represents one of the most holy times in the religion of Islam. We will also take a little time to reflect on traditions within the Jewish and the Christian faiths which share some of both the concepts and the practices of Ramadan. Lessons from Imam Muhammad Musri about Ramadan, which has begun today for 1.8 billion Muslims – that’s on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
