The Iftar is the meal served at the end of the day during Ramadhan, to break the day’s fast. Literally, it means “breakfast.” Iftar is served at sunset during each day of Ramadhan, as Muslims break the daily fast. The other meal during Ramadhan, which is taken in the morning (pre-dawn), is called suhoor.
Muslims traditionally first break the fast with dates and either water or a yogurt drink.
After Maghrib prayer, they then have a full-course meal, consisting of soup, salad, appetizers and main dishes. In some cultures, the full-course meal is delayed into later in the evening or even early morning. Traditional foods vary by country.
Iftar is very much a social event, involving family and community members. It is common for people to host others for dinner, or gather as a community for a potluck. It is also common for people to invite and share food with those less fortunate. The spiritual reward for charitable giving is considered to be especially significant during Ramadhan
Food packages are given to widows and destitute families during the whole month of Ramadhan.
Orphaned children are given Eid gifts of new clothes and new shoes on this auspicious occasion.
