A payment of $45 counts towards 30 Iftar meals.

This Ramadan, we have partnered with a team of locals in Islamabad, Pakistan to feed an Iftar to day laborers. These laborers work outside every day in the heat while fasting and make on average $6 per day. To feed them a wholesome meal costs $1.50, and counts towards fidya/kaffarah. Silsila will cover the cost of credit card fees/transfer fees to Pakistan.

The science behind Islamic calligraphy

When done properly, Islamic calligraphy is a science as much as it is an art form. Each letter in each script has been mastered over for generations so that it is in the most perfect proportions determined by sacred geometry. After a few hours of viewing calligraphy, it is easy to differentiate the self-taught calligrapher versus the calligrapher who has perfected the artform under a master.
