Only halal and vegetarian dishes will be served. Apart from breaking the fast together, the church welcomes us to recite the adhan (Islamic call to prayer) and to perform Maghrib salah. This is yet another landmark precedent that augurs exceeding well for better Christian-Muslim relations in the Western Cape.
