Celebrating the Incredible Women in Our Lives This Ramadan

Islamic_Society_of_Akron_&_Kent_-_women_jummah_prayer

Women are dynamic, strong and absolutely brilliant. We know that. Women’s experiences are also shaped by our different lifestyles. In this post, we look at and celebrate the experiences shared during Ramadan that unite Muslim women together in this blessed month.

This Ramadan, we are the mothers staying up all night looking after children and working full time during the day – all while fasting.

We are also the mothers struggling to feed their children at iftar, putting together whatever we can to keep the hunger away for the day.

We are the women studying and taking exams during Ramadan and absolutely exceeding all expectations in academia.

We are the women excelling in our fields, from our schools to our workplaces, smashing all stereotypes and glass ceilings above us.

We are the women taking part in and chairing meetings on a four hour sleep and a 14 hour fast.

We are the women organising Taraweeh and Qiyam at the mosque, welcoming in and meeting so many women from our local communities and forming a life-long sisterhood.

We are the women organising group iftars for our families and communities under the spirit of Ramadan.

We are women. Strong, independent and absolutely powerful.

Let’s celebrate the incredible women in our lives this Ramadan.

What shapes your Ramadan experience as a woman? Let us know!
