Reflections on Ramadan: S.A. Ibrahim

A week before the beginning of this year’s month of Ramadan (now in its 14th day), Mr. S.A. Ibrahim sat on a plane and wrote down reflections “not only from a long time back – half a century ago, but also of a distant place, Hyderabad.” In a special letter he recently shared with us, he tells us of his childhood as a young Muslim boy in India, of the excitement of the days leading up to Ramadan, the special dishes and customs of the holiday itself, and the meaning of this month to him both as a child then, in India, and as an adult now, in the U.S. We invite you to read this letter at: http://icci.org.il/downloads/RamadanReflections.pdf.

Mr. S.A. Ibrahim is chief executive officer of a US-based global credit risk management company. He is a Muslim American businessman of Indian origin, who is active in promoting interreligious dialogue. In 2011, Mr. Ibrahim received ICCI’s “Building Bridges and Bonds” award at a special dinner event in Washington, DC.
