Fasting in America's ONLY Muslim Town (Ramadan)

Fasting in America's ONLY Muslim Town (Ramadan)

Ever since I heard that Hamtramck, Michigan is America's ONLY Muslim-majority town, I knew that I had to visit (because I love Islam!!) And it turned out to be one of the most incredible experiences that I've had within my own country, the United States of America.

 

My friend @Jessica Kobeissi took me around her stomping grounds to introduce me to the culture that she grew up in, and I was completely amazed.

 

So many Lebanese, Iraqis, Yemenis, Bangladeshis, Somalis, Syrians (etc) all living together in this suburban Michigan town called Hamtramck, along with nearby Dearborn.

 

I went during the very first day of Ramadan - the holiest month in Islam - and I even participated in the fast myself.

 

Watch until the end to see is breaking the fast (or iftar) at Jessica's friend's house.

 

The moral of this story is that America is SO BIG and SO DIVERSE, and there are many micro-communities to be discovered.

 

Would you like to see more stories about the different communities in the USA? Please comment below and let me know - your feedback is so valuable to me.

 

Thank you, and Ramadan Kareem to all who celebrate ❤️
