What Is Iftar Party?
An iftar party is a gathering that takes place during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, at sunset, when Muslims break their fast after a day of abstaining from food and drink. The word “iftar” comes from the Arabic word “futur”, which means “breaking the fast”.
Iftar parties are typically held with family, friends, and members of the community. They are a time of celebration, prayer, and reflection, and are an opportunity for people to come together and share a meal after a day of fasting.
Iftar parties can vary in size and scope, from small gatherings in homes to large community events in mosques or public spaces. In many parts of the world, including India, it is a common practice for individuals and organizations to host iftar parties for members of the community, regardless of their religion or background.
These parties often include a variety of food and drink, including dates, fruits, sweets, and savory dishes. They may also include prayers, recitations from the Quran, and other religious activities.
