Local Muslim community observes holy month of Ramadan
The holy month of Ramadan could not have come at a more appropriate time this year.
With thousands of children dying from hunger in Somalia, the Muslim community in Woodbury is feeling the crisis a bit more this time.
Ramadan is a month-long holiday that requires Muslims to fast during the daylight hours.
It is a lunar month that falls during different times of the solar year, which explains the reason for it being in the fall one year and summer a few years later.
