Ramadan Traditions in Makkah: Iftar

Iftar is the first meal of the day eaten  during the Holy month of Ramadan and it follows a day of fasting. It typically begins with eating an odd number of dates and drinking milk or water. Meccans stop to pray the Maghrib prayer, then continue eating. Pictured below is a traditional Meccan Iftar: it includes fuul, shakshooka, sambusak, Shorbat Hab, fresh fruit, qata’if and kunafa for dessert.C953BF97-7653-4C3A-824F-89937C2EBCCE.jpeg
