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!”
