participate in annual month-long fast
Arif Kahurangi Hussain (Te Roroa) along with his brothers in faith, Tuhoi and Philip, are among the thousands of Muslims in New Zealand participating in Ramadan this year. Although they come from Māori families, they have embraced the teachings of Islam, which is the fastest-growing religion in the country.
According to statistics, there are approximately 50,000 Muslims in New Zealand, including 1400 Māori.
Hussain, who started practising Islam nine months ago, has found acceptance and support within the Muslim community.
