July 30 : 02 days to Ramadan*

Did you know there are estimated to be between 1 and 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide?

Did you know that there are an estimate 2-7 million Muslims living in the United States?

It is difficult to pinpoint the exact number since the U.S. Census cannot, by law, ask questions about religion.

Observed by more than one billion Muslims around the world, the month of Ramadan is a time for spiritual purification achieved through fasting, self-sacrifice and prayers. We’ll be presenting a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Ramadan!*

*Please Note: According to Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) the first day of fasting in North America would be Monday, August 1, 2011. Elsewhere depends where you live.

Cell Phone Courtesy Month

“Cell phones were invented to make our lives easier, not more annoying”

We couldn’t let the month pass without bringing attention to a very important cause – Cell Phone Courtesy – because L-rd knows there sure is a lack of common courtesy from cell phone users throughout this country!
