- Owner of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, shared a heart-warming post of him sharing a meal with Muslims during Ramadan Iftar
- Iftar is compulsory meal set to break fast of Muslims who are observing the holy month of Ramadan in its entirety
- Happening in a period when Muslims are blamed for terrorism in the world, Mark is blazing a worldview changing trail
If it takes one man to change the world then founder and owner of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is well on his way. As Muslim brothers and sisters come to the end of holy month, Mark visited a family to share a meal with them during Iftar.
The tech guru shared the heart-melting photo on his social media page, showing the rest of the world that unity is a basic need in human existence. The Iftar is a compulsory dinner observed by Muslims who have dedicated their time to fast in the holy month of Ramadan.
As he shared the photo, he added a story of the Somalia refugees who have found a home in America and with whom he had dinner with.
He said:"Tonight I had my first Iftar dinner with a group of Somali refugees in Minneapolis.
As a refugee, you often don't get to choose which country you end up in. When I asked one man, who had spent 26 years in a refugee camp, whether America now felt like home, he gave a simple and profound answer: Home is where you are free to do what you want. Yes, this feels like home. There are few places in the world he felt comfortable to be who he is: the country he was born, and our country that values freedom. What a beautiful tribute to America.
Thanks to my hosts for being so gracious at the very end of Ramadan. I left impressed by your strength and resilience to build a new life in an unfamiliar place, and you are a powerful reminder of why this country is so great."
Many who understand the weight of his actions commented, appreciating him for his works, most importantly, his compassionate spirit.
