Celebration of Ramadan different this year due to Covid-19 - VPR

During Ramadan, Vermont’s 4-6,000 Muslims are accustomed to breaking their daily fast at large, festive communal meals. Not this year…..

"This is also the first time in Hassan's life that he and other community members haven't been able to gather during Ramadan. "Basically Ramadan is the most sacred time of the year to many Muslims," he said, adding that it commemorates when the Prophet Muhammad first began receiving the Quran. And in the absence of the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing requirements, Hassan said it's usually like "30 nights of Thanksgiving," with people meeting at the mosque at least three times a week to break their fast, pray and eat together."
