Education is a huge objective of No Boundaries Cricket Club so we are setting up an educational hub to try and share as much knowledge about cricket, racism, diversity and inclusivity as possible.
This is a huge project and we are not sure how it will fit into the site long term but for now we are sticking a post at the top of the site and will add links to our educational posts in it, or just click on the education tag in the sidebar.
We will add more tags and easy access to specific subject areas as we add more content, so for example if you click on the Hindu Header below it will take you to all the educational posts relevant to Hindu.
If you want to make a suggestion as to content you would like adding please get in touch

Ramadan: For Muslims across the globe, these few weeks are a sacred time for worshipping Allah (SWT). They offer an opportunity for devotion, reflection and celebration of the mercy and love of Allah (SWT). As the Islamic calendar is based around the lunar cycle, the Holy month of Ramadan rotates by approximately ten days each year. The meal at sunset when the fast is broken is known as Iftar and is also known as futoor (which is the Arabic word for breakfast), and the meal taken before sunset is known as Suhoor. Iftar is traditionally a meal shared with friends.
Eid Mubarak: translated means blessed feast and is used very much as a general phrase when Muslims celebrate.
Eid al Fitr: the celebratory feast to mark the end of the month long Ramadan, and is the earlier of two official holidays celebrated within Islam.
