Saudi students plan public celebration to begin Ramadan


As Muslims around the world prepare to observe the holy month of Ramadan, the Pittsburg State University Saudi Student Association will host a celebration to both begin the observance and introduce the public to this important time on the Islamic lunar calendar.

The celebration will be from 8-10 p.m. on Thursday, June 25, in Gorilla Village, just east of Carnie Smith Stadium. The students will serve Saudi food and drink and will offer a brief presentation about Ramadan. The event is open to the campus as well as the community.

The ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, Ramadan is a time to purify the soul, refocus attention on God and practice self-sacrifice. During this time, Muslims typically abstain from food, drink and other physical needs during the daylight hours.

For more information about the Saudi Student Association celebration of Ramadan, contact Fatimah Bader at 620-687-7771 or Fatimah.Bader@gus.pittstate.edu.
