The holy month of Ramadan has marked its beginning and during this month important month of the Muslim Calendar devotees restrict themselves from consuming anything during the hours of daylight. They devote their entire time to prayer for commemorating the blessings of Allah.
How does this Holy Muslim month of Ramadan work in favour of the Christian? Precisely, how is it more important for the evangelicals? According to a recent survey it was found that the evangelicals, especially the white evangelicals stood out form expressing unfavourable opinions about the Muslims. The white evangelicals are three times more likely to have unfavourable opinions about Muslims.
The reason why the holy month of Ramadan is the perfect opportunity for the evangelicals is that they can use the occasion to drive away these trends, thoughts and stereotypes by setting an example by showing love and compassion to their neighbours as per the commandment of God.
Adding more to that Ramadan is also an opportunity for implementing a spiritual muscle that is mostly neglected in the communities that are living a public faith. Here are some of the things that evangelicals can during the Ramadan.
Attend the Iftar Dinner
Mosques across the country invite neighbours to join for the fast-breaking meal called iftar. You will not be forced to follow their religious practices but you are free to participate with your family and groups.
A small act of Gesture
The least yet the most precious thing you can do is to wish them a happy Ramadan. This is a simple act that can make a lot of difference.
Building a stronger understanding among people from different religions can contribute to eliminating all the unwanted stereotypes in society.
