I'll Fast With You
Help someone new to Islam stay connected and feel supported.
The shared community experience of Ramadan is arguably the greatest spectacle of religious worship in the world. Shared at both a local and global level, the atmosphere is charged and our consciousness refocused. Families come together to break their fasts and to spend time. Communities come together to share a meal and pray.
But for many converts to Islam, the experience can be challenging, confusing and lonely. Without Muslim family or friends to share this month, the community buzz and the many events taking place are easily missed. Without support, fasting can become spiritually stressful.
Benevolence Australia has found that converts most successfully settle into a healthy practice and understanding of Islam when they are supported and have key mentors within the community to help and guide them.
Proudly supported by Muslim Aid Australia, we are holding a number of events throughout Ramadan to help keep converts connected, and feel supported with our I'll Fast With You campaign - but we need your help. Please donate so we can deliver these much needed programs.
