Unity and compassion was the goal of an interfaith meal held at a Philadelphia mosque on Sunday night.

At 8:12 p.m. prayers were said and a day-long fast was broken.

Dozens gathered for the traditional Iftar meal at Masjidullah in West Oak Lane.

It’s the meal that ends each daily fast during the sacred month of Ramadan.

“We fast from sun up to sunset. We don’t eat anything. We don’t put anything in our mouths. More importantly, we don’t argue fuss and fight with people,” said Imam Abdul-Halim Hassan

This meal was an interfaith Iftar open to all.
