The UMass Rumi Club invites you to “Fast for a Day” during the Holy month of Ramadan. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam and defined as an abstinence from all food and drink from sunrise to sunset. It is a practice of self-discipline. Muslims believe fasting to be the key for a true, sincere, comprehensive and universal thanksgiving.


Come and Join us. Give it a try. Challenge yourself. Fast a day and be amazed by the things we take for granted.
