On November 30, 2003 the Iowa State Daily reported that "about 70 students went without eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset as part of the Muslim Student Association's Fast-a-thon. The Fast-a-thon is based upon businesses pledging money for students to fast, said Saddam Khattak, senior in computer engineering. The $400 raised will go to the Story County food pantry and emergency shelter."
