Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF) 2021 Ramadan Contest

Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF), an international organization affiliated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), calls for submissions for the ICYF RAMADAN CONTEST.

The holy month of Ramadan is upon us once again and although this year’s holy month will be a slightly different due to the ongoing pandemic, we hope to fulfil our duty to the creator of the heavens and the earth, Allah (SWT) by fasting and doing more good in this holy month. Although the pandemic has made it impossible to enjoy most of our traditional Islamic Ramadan customs like breaking our fast with our friends and families and performing Taraweeh together with our communities at our local masajid,  we would like to remind you that these difficult times shall come to pass and we will continue to work hand in glove with the Muslim youth.

Our 2021 ICYF Ramadan Contest is giving the youth yet another good thing to look forward to as we are providing a platform for the youth to show their local customs and traditions in the blessed month of Ramadan. We are calling upon the youth to express their Ramadan customs and traditions in text, video, and photo formats in an effort to bring us together at a time when we are disconnected in the physical world. Our motive is to promote our cultures and customs through multimedia during Ramadan within the frameworks of the beautiful religion of Islam. We want you to show us how you spend your time in Ramadan in your community, what you do in preparation for fasting each day and or what you do differently in this holy month within your locality.
