Non-Muslims take part in the Share Ramadan challenge

The Share Ramadan project is encouraging Muslims up and down the country to encourage their non-Muslim neighbours, colleagues and friends to get involved in the fasting experience.

Share Ramadan works in three simple steps: 1. A Muslim challenges his friend, neighbour or work colleague of another faith or no faith to fast for a day. 2. They invite them to come and break the fast in their house. 3. They upload a photo or video on social media using the #ShareRamadan hashtag and nominate five Muslim friends to do the same.\

Share Ramadan is now in its fourth year and has now gained a global audience and following. Thousands of people are participating all over the world from US, Canada, Australia, India and many other countries.

Hundreds of video diaries and pictures have been uploaded onto social media with around a million video views on social media collectively on the Share Ramadan Facebook page.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
