MIAMI (AP) — A Florida mosque is welcoming non-Muslims to join in festivities during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
The Miami Herald reports (http://hrld.us/1mv3WWT ) Masjid AnNoor held a fifth annual open house to coincide with Ramadan.
During Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset. The fasting and prayers are designed to help followers reconnect spiritually.
Participants from a variety of faiths joined at the mosque and learned about Muslim customs.
The chair of the Islamic School of Miami said the event is designed to bridge gaps, open doors and show people what goes on inside mosques.
