What is Iftar?
During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast every day from sunrise to sunset. The fast-breaking meal eaten after sunset is called Iftar.
Traditionally, the fast is broken with dates or something small before the daily evening prayer. Besides fasting, another of the pillars of Islam is the ritual prayer, performed five times a day. This is done throughout the year, and one of the daily prayers is done at sunset. So often, fasters will break the daily fast with dates or a small bit of food, pray the evening prayer, and then eat a full Iftar meal. Iftar meal will never include pork, alcohol, or other forbidden foods.
