Sadaqah in Birmingham

Members of Birmingham's Muslim community got together this Ramadan to dish out food for the homeless and anyone feeling a bit peckish in the city centre every Wednesday evening. Unfortunately for one of the days it was cancelled due to the recent rioting, but continued for the rest of the month uninterrupted. A most touching site was the performing of the Maghrib (sunset) prayer to beckon the end of fasting, right in the heart of the city centre outside Waterstone's bookshop.
