Can you last a Muslim fast?

During the month of Ramadan, many Muslim colleagues at the Financial Ombudsman Service will be fasting for a whole month, from sunrise to sunset.

The Islamic Network would like to give everyone at the service the opportunity to join us on Thursday 16 June in a day of sponsored fasting – raising money for Haven House in the process.

The official fast will begin at 2:39am and end at 9:23pm, but we’re happy for colleagues to fast for a duration they’re comfortable with should they wish.

Ramadan will begin on or around 6 June this year and will culminate in a day of celebration (Eid) on or around 6 July. The Islamic Network will be holding an Eid event open to all colleagues on 12 July.
