Muslim family brings love, brotherhood in Manchester

Following the Manchester and London attacks in the recent past, a Muslim family tries to unite people in the Holy month of Ramadan, with the most unique and heart melting expression.

Manchester Arena was attacked after Ariana Grande’s concert on May 22 and another attack happened on June 3 at the London Bridge.

More than 130 Muslim Imams refused to offer the funeral prayers for the attackers.
A public statement got issued, saying, “This is because such indefensible actions are completely at odds with the lofty teachings of Islam,” Indian Express reports.

Amid all of these expressions to show true Islamic teachings, a Redditor shared an emotional message for their neighbours, the letter reads, “Please join us today as we break our fast at sunset and say a prayer for the innocent lives lost in our country and all around the world.”

People were touched by the message shared on social media. Shedding light on why Ramadan is observed, the letter received more than 40,000 upvotes, at the time of writing.

The Reddit user SenecaTheYounger got these responses:

A Reddit user pippabeemine wrote, “I’ve had several sets of Muslim neighbours over the years, and all of them have included me and my family in the breaking of their fast. Last year, my Muslim neighbours bought me a meal for all four of us, spiced chicken, rice and mixed veg. It was amazing. They are wonderful, wonderful people.”

“Many years ago, I had a Turkish neighbour who kind of randomly brought us some traditional Turkish pudding, one evening…she didn’t say anything about being Muslim or Ramadan…but now I think this is likely what she was doing. Not having any notion that about them fast, I tried to return the favour by baking some traditional Turkish shortbread cookies (which turned out pretty tasty)…which would likely have not been on the menu, considering,” another user, mrjawright, commented.
