Oshkosh Muslims keeping the faith during the pandemic
Muslims celebrate Ramadhan with families during the pandemic.
OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) – Muslims across the globe are celebrating the holiest month in Islam, Ramadan and local mosques have had to adapt because of the pandemic.
Khurram Ahmad is the Oshkosh Muslim Society Public Relations Coordinator and says, “Ramadan is mainly a month of fasting and when we say a month of fasting people say oh my God you’re not eating anything for a whole month, but it’s only from sunrise to sunset that you don’t eat or drink anything.”
During this Holy month, the Ahmadiyya Mosque in Oshkosh has opened its doors to a limited capacity because of the pandemic.
