Session Resources: Ramadan Culture & our Mental Health

Note: We compile this list of resources relating to Penawar’s session topic that you may find on our social media. We are not trying to impose a fixed understanding of Islam but we see it as a continuous learning process for us all. We ask that you keep an open mind and an open heart.
