Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity of all faiths and no faiths were in­vited to join lo­cal Mus­lims on the evening of Thurs­day June 9 to break their fast and to ob­serve how Ra­madan is con­ducted.

There was a tour of the mosque and then a talk took place en­ti­tled Vi­sion and Val­ues, which ex­plored ways to cre­ate a fairer so­ci­ety together.

The panel of speak­ers in­cluded Mus­lim Faisal Iqbal and Rev­erend Anne El­lis and there was time for ev­ery­one to lis­ten, share and talk. The event was or­gan­ised by Be­yond Dif­fer­ence, in con­junc­tion with the Che­sham Mosque Com­mit­tee.

Be­yond Dif­fer­ence is a group of peo­ple from many faiths and no faiths who are in­ter­ested in find­ing com­mon ground be­tween dif­fer­ent be­liefs, shar­ing knowl­edge and de­vel­op­ing trust and un­der­stand­ing in or­der to pro­mote har­mony in the com­mu­nity.

The group meets ev­ery sec­ond month at dif­fer­ent places, of­ten in a re­li­gious venue, to learn about that par­tic­u­lar be­lief.

This year, Ra­madan started on Mon­day June 6 and will fin­ish on Tues­day July 5.

Eid-al-Fitr will take place on Wed­nes­day July 6.
