Salams everyone! I hope this message finds you well. As promised, here are some further details about the upcoming interfaith iftaar some friends and I are hosting on Friday. Hope you can join!
“Since my new place isn’t done yet, Safia and I have decided upon meeting up in Meridian Hill/Malcom X Park in Columbia Heights. I’ll take care of the dates and reusable cutlery/serving utensils. Please bring a dish to share with the group, which will be roughly 20 people. For those who wish to pray we could pray outdoors with prayer mats we bring or go to a nearby masjid. We will be meeting around 7:30 until 10 PM.
In the spirit of making this a green iftaar, please try to bring some type of reusable container to take home leftovers and a water bottle for your drinks.
For those wishing to pray, I found a masjid somewhat close to where we’ll be: Ahmadiyya
2141 Leroy Place Northwest, Washington, DC 20008. Friends from a halaqa group have gone there for Maghreb and isha’a prayers. “
