First Iftar held at College

4th July 2018


Abdullah Khan (2017) who attended the event provided this short write-up:

“Ramadan is a Holy Month in the Islamic calendar during which Muslims fast from dawn to sunset (no food or water). The break of the fast is marked by a (usually collective) meal called Iftar.

“In the spirit of inclusivity, Magdalen College hosted its first ever Iftar on the 8th of June, 2018, bringing together members of the College over a meal in the President’s Lodgings.

“On behalf of the Muslim community at Magdalen, I would like to thank the President and Lady Clary for hosting a lovely meal and for their amazing hospitality.

“I am also very excited to hear that the Presidential Iftar will be added as a regular to the Magdalen calendar!”
