The community gathered in Hyde, thanks to members of the Bangladeshi community, to learn more about the meaning and reasons for Ramadan.
Former Imam, Kamal Uddin, attended the event at the local POP community center, to explain how Muslims fast to feel what those who are hungry feel, by not eating during the day, throughout the period of Ramadan.
Once dusk descends, food can be eaten, giving rise to the word “breakfast”.
The event was organized by community leaders Mohammed Khan and Mahammed Mohi Uddin Saleem.
About 50 guests enjoyed Kamal’s informative talk, then slipped into trays containing a variety of tasty traditional dishes.
Guests included Stockport Mayor Aiden Nottingham and Stockport County Chairman Steve Bellis.
Other guests included local politicians and prominent members of the community.
The organizers thanked all the guests and POPs for hosting the event, with special thanks to Kamal for his informative speech.
