Key Resources for Ramadan

Ramadan Mubarak!

The MICA office affirms our commitments to welcome religious observations as part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Ramadan is the holy month when observant Muslims abstain from food and water from sunrise to sunset during the lunar month (usually 29 or 30 days).

If you would like to offer suggestions or recommend resources that are not listed in this guide, please contact the MICA office at [email protected].
