Mount Lavinia Hotel, as a responsible corporate entity, hosted a cross section of the Muslim community on the 15th July for its yearly Ifthar celebrations at the Empire Ballroom with the participation of the Chairman and staff.
The Imam conducted prayers and recitation of the Holy Quran followed by a traditional Ifthar dinner.
MLH, built on traditions of over 200 years, has long been celebrating many important cultural events of every community and faith in Sri Lanka - such as Christmas, Thai pongal, Ramazan & Vesak as integral to our ideal of building and maintaining good relations with all communities in Sri Lanka.
Moulavi Ziyard Ibrahim who conducted the prayers commented “Just wanted to thank you all again for Ifthar & dinner last night. As every year it was really great. We actually had an absolute welcoming and serving staff. They made us feel like kings and VVIP’s. Food was fabulous and fantastic. The Managements and staff of MLH are so gifted to have the pure blessings of several devotees and pious fasting mouths asking God to reward you. According to our religion, he who assists someone in ending fast will get the same reward as the one who observed fasting. Thank you once again”
