Be Informed. Be Interceding. Be Involved
With a slight unease… which I soon discovered was unfounded, I sat down at the supper table. Looking across at the Muslim family of six, I was wondering how the evening would fare. Here was Alpha and myself in Bo-Kaap, a predominantly Muslim area, sharing iftaar (breaking of the Fast during Ramadan) with a Muslim family. What followed was an evening of bountiful food and interesting conversation which continued late into the night. How did we end up sharing the iftaar with a Muslim family whom we have only met briefly before?
