ULM'S Chatauqua Nexus discusses Ramadan

The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Chautauqua Nexus talks about Ramadan next week. International students from ULM will share their understanding of this very special time in the Muslim religion. Throughout Ramadan a strict fast is observed during the hours of daylight. Muslims are also encouraged to read the entire Koran in commemoration of the Night of Power when , it is believed, Muhammad first received his revelation from the angel gabriel."
