As the month of Ramadan begins, I wanted to take a moment to extend my warmest wishes to each and every one of you. Ramadan is a time of reflection, spirituality, and community, and it is a truly special time for Muslims all around the world.
As the Vice President for Wellbeing and Diversity, I am proud to represent a community that is diverse and inclusive, where everyone can feel welcomed and respected, regardless of their beliefs or backgrounds. During this month, we recognize and celebrate the unique and important contributions that Muslim students bring to our community.
Ramadan is a time for fasting, prayer, and reflection, and it is also a time for giving back to those in need. I am inspired by the generosity and compassion that is shown during this month, as Muslim students come together to help those who are less fortunate.
I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the incredible contributions that Muslim students make to our community, both during Ramadan and throughout the year. Your presence enriches our campus and our lives, and we are grateful for the diversity and richness that you bring.
I wish you all a blessed and fulfilling Ramadan, filled with peace, joy, and spiritual growth. May this month be a time of renewal and inspiration, and may it bring you closer to your faith and to each other.?

Ramadan starts on Wednesday 22nd March for our Muslim students and staff, and most Muslims will be fasting during daylight hours until Friday 21st April. For Muslims the blessed month of Ramadan is?a sacred time for worshipping, reflection and celebration and refraining from eating and drinking between sunrise and sunset is a huge part of this.??
