A High Wycombe mosque is opening its doors and inviting people to share a Ramadan meal in a show of unity against the “appalling” recent terrorist attacks.

The High Wycombe Islamic Society (WISE) will share a free Ramadan meal – an Iftar – with non-Muslim members of the community at their centre in St Marks Close on June 10.

As well as breaking fast and enjoying a meal, non-Muslim visitors will be able to find out more about Islam and why Muslims fast. 

In the wake of the shocking terror attack on London Bridge at the weekend, Refi Shafi, chairman of WISE, says community events like this are important.

He said: “Britain has been shaken with appalling, successive terrorist attacks. Questions are being asked in the media, politicians are upping their rhetoric, suspicion is on the rise.

“So come and meet your Muslim neighbours and colleagues. Learn a bit about what Islam actually is, learn about the month of Ramadan and why it is so special to the Muslims, find out what happens in Mosques and Islamic Centres, and feel free to ask questions in an open and friendly environment.

“We are a diverse community, with different backgrounds and ethnicities. But we are also one community, and so long as we remain one community, they can never win.”

Visitors can arrive from 8.15pm, with a presentation and Q&A session at 8,30pm, before open fast and sunset prayer at 9.20pm and the meal at 9.40pm.
