Fieldwork

An iftar tradition continues

In a little while I am heading to the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland for the breaking of the fast (iftar).

This marks my second straight summer with this largely South Asian community during the holy month of Ramadan.

During Ramadan, I see people demonstrating incredible self-control over their desires and temptations, which helps them to grow spiritually by depending upon their conscience. In addition, I see a community which stresses the importance of service and inter-faith dialogue.

I am thankful they have opened their doors to me once again.

Ramadan Mubarak!
