Guidance for Ramadan
Lyneham and Bradenstoke Parish Council
Wiltshire and Swindon's Local Resilience Forum (LRF) has issued an open letter to Muslims in the county planning to mark Ramadan (23 April – 22 May), urging them to find alternative ways to celebrate, pray and enjoy the special month, reminding them that they will not be able to mark Ramadan in the way they would normally do.
Under the current restrictions, all places of worship, including mosques, should remain closed and people will be unable to meet outside of their immediate households for sharing meals and prayers.
The LRF is asking everyone who is preparing for Ramadan to think about different ways of connecting virtually with people outside their own household, including praying at home, planning Iftars ahead to minimise trips to the supermarket, video calling family for Iftar meals (breaking the fast) and using social media to reach out to the community.
The Muslim Council of Britain has published a downloadable guide on Ramadan 2020 on its website providing further information and advice.
