How to be a good neighbor to Utah Muslims during Ramadan (via City Cast Salt Lake)


For Muslims in Utah and around the world, the holy month of Ramadan — which began with the sighting of the crescent moon on Friday — is a period of fasting, prayer and community. This week, the new local podcast City Cast Salt Lake offered a guide to being a good neighbor to Utah Muslims who are refraining from eating or drinking from dawn to dusk. Host Ali Vallarta spoke with Nora Abu Dan, co-founder of the Emerald Project, to hear about the meaning of Ramadan, what a typical day of fasting looks like, and how Utahns can be supportive of their Muslim neighbors during this time of spiritual renewal.

Thanks to the team at City Cast Salt Lake for sharing this conversation with KCPW.
