What is Ramadan?
2012 Vol. 4: July/Aug
On August 1, 2011, President Obama released a statement marking the first day of Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims. He acknowledged its significance and wished Muslims, both locally and around the world, a blessed month. The fact that more and more high profile figures of American society are acknowledging Islamic practices and holidays is a clear indication that the presence of Islam here in America is a growing phenomenon. Christians should be on the alert, not to treat this as a threat, but as an opportunity to reach people with the Gospel who otherwise would be difficult to reach in their homelands.
