Ely Muslim Association welcome guests to their Iftar gathering
An annual community gathering was held by the Ely Muslim Association to break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

They break their fast at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer.
Delicious food was served as thanks were offered and the day reflected upon.

In his speech, Cllr Rouse said: “Thank you for inviting us in a spirit of greater understanding.
“Thank you for your hospitality and food.

“May you always be welcome and greeted and accepted with friendship.”
