Ramadan Mubarak, 2020

Ramadan Mubarak,
my neighbors,
even in this season of coronavirus
and shelter in place.

Deep goodness in the fasting
and the prayers of day.
May the beauty of Qur’an
in virtual recitation
be a guide in all your living.

May Iftar be a time of small sweetnesses,
and Tarawih at home,
so new and strange,
fill your heart with blessing.

Greetings to all from Christians who are also People of the Book and who have just passed through our holiest time of the year with a combination of online community and home-based devotion.

    I just forwarded this reflection on to our son and daughter-in-law in Dubai, who have begun observing this Holy Season of Ramadan. Thank you for crafting this prayer and greetings from all Christians.
