Check out this guide written by your network leader, Serish Shah: What is Ramadan?

“Why do Muslims fast? For me, Ramadan is like a multifaceted detox. It has spiritual, physical and mental rewards. We all live busy lives, so it is considered a time to reconnect or re-energize and focus on what is important.”

Eid al-Fitr

Marketing have created this beautiful Eid e-card template for you to use and share with your Teams. Eid al-Fitr, also known as the 'Festival of Breaking the Fast', is a big celebration that marks the end of Ramadan - a time where our fellow Muslim colleagues and students may have been fasting.

Eid al-Adha

Serish was also a guest editor for one of our Five Things for a Friday. To learn a little bit more about the celebration, why it exists and how it is observed and celebrated by Muslims all over the world, click: Five Things for a Friday - Eid

Reflection Room

The reflection room is a multi faith space for you to reflect, relax, pray or gather your thoughts. All staff are welcome to use this space. You can find the room opposite the Gryphon Office on Level 1. This room was created based on feedback from the REACH network.
