In partnership with Metro Human Relations Commission, Faith & Culture Center organized the 5th annual Music City Iftar. This year’s theme was Communities of Justice: Islamic Tradition and Restorative Practice. The program included explanations of the rituals of Ramadan, a month in which Muslims fast from dawn until sunset, and a panel discussion on affinities between Islamic notions of justice and those of the restorative justice community.
It was a beautiful evening with lively and robust conversation on issues of justice within our communities. We were thrilled to see a diverse audience of Muslims and non-Muslims brought together for meaningful conversation, and look forward to seeing those connections develop into partnerships.
A special thank you to Salahadeen Center of Nashville and The Islamic Center of Tennessee for their generous donations to the meal.
