The month of Ramadan is the world’s most widespread fast and the most important month in the Islamic calendar. It is a time when Muslims around the globe unite in peace, prayer and piety and strive to take the opportunity to quest for the divine. They ask for forgiveness and strength to further their understanding of what Islam teaches us as humanity in search of divine nearness, selflessness and dignity.
Featuring over 300 outstanding photos from the past editions of the “Capture the Spirit of Ramadan” International Photography Competition™, this book aims to enlighten readers about the holy month of Ramadan. Photos include colorful celebrations of happiness and togetherness among families and friends, historic and modern Islamic architecture, traditional foods and festivities, spiritual serenity and stories of normal people, of the humble human experience under Islam
This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition Capture the Spirit of Ramadan, which will be held at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia in June 2015.
