  1. Noah’s Pudding(An Ashura Day Tradition) What is Ashura Day? Celebration of Ashura Day A day of fasting among the Muslims observed on the 10th day* of the first month of the Islamic calendar, Muharram, and derived from the Jewish Day of Atonement.* Muharram 10 is January 29 this year. Dialogue International endeavors to promote intercultural and interfaith dialogue and to provide an environment for students and the public to exchange ideas and information on various cultures and beliefs. To reach this goal we have started a video lecture series which focuses on major religions and deals with less known aspects of them. We also organize celebrations of common holidays in major cultures and religions, including speeches by representatives of each religion. We have been organizing interfaith dialogue activities which have brought Muslim, Christian and Jewish speakers and believers together. We hope that all these activities will serve to establish a peaceful world and a growth of understanding, tolerance, and love. What should we do on Ashura Day?Prophet MUHAMMAD (p. b. u. h.) has recommended: Worship Allah as much as you can on Ashura Day.Whoever fasts on this day is like one who fasts all his life.Whoever clothes a needy person Allah will release him from a painful punishment.He who visits a sick person, Allah will grant him a reward that will not be decreased.Whoever places his hand on an orphan’s head, or feeds a hungry person, or gives water to a thirsty man, Allah will feed him a feast from Paradise and will quench his thirst with Salsabil (a drink that does not intoxicate). The cooking Noah’s Pudding (ashure, hedik, amah or qamhiyyi) is a common practice among Muslim and Christian people in the Middle East. Ashure is a dessert made by cooking the ingredients above in a special way. It is a traditional commemoration of the first meal Noah prepared after the Great Flood. ** Come and taste Noah’s Pudding with us! **Sunday February 18th anytime from 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM at St. Thomas Aquinas Center If you are interested in cooking Noah’s Pudding with us!Saturday February 18th at Noonat St. Thomas Aquinas Center (e-mail: mkoksal@purdue.edu)
