“IWillFast4OneDay” in Ramadan for the NHS campaign launched by The Saffron Group

A Business Networking group based in Lancashire, The Saffron Group, is inviting everyone to join them to experience a “Fast for one Day” during the month of Ramadan, on Wednesday 13th May for the NHS. The aim is to share the experience of fasting for one day in Ramadan with millions of Muslims across the UK and by doing so raising money for NHS Charities Together. 

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world fast for a full lunar month. The fast begins just before dawn and is broken at sunset. During this time, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking and smoking as well as other activities such as sinful speech and behaviour.

Commented Saffron Group co-founder, Purves Ali: “The fasting is done in order to appreciate what we have and to learn patience, discipline, self-control and so much more. 

“During this time, Muslims also give a portion of their wealth to charity and last year in Ramadhan, Muslims in the UK donated over £100 million to charity. This year, we’re encouraging those taking part to raise money for The Saffron Group’s nominated charity: NHS Charities Together.”
