Ramadan feast – Best iftar buffets and suhoor meals

Ramadan is here! The holiest month of the year in the Islamic calendar is a time for piety, charity and blessings.

Ramadan festivities

During Ramadan, Muslims are required to abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from dawn to dusk. The day has two main meals – the suhoor meal at dawn and the iftar meal at dusk. Traditionally, families come together to break the fast in the evening. Very often, fasts are broken as a community with friends and colleagues also joining in for the iftar meal. During the week, suhoor meals are typically consumed at home. But on weekends, people like to step out for the suhoor meal and go to restaurants or to tents that have been set up especially for this purpose.

Tradition of breaking the fast as a community

Celebrating Ramadan is about family and community. As such, breaking the daily fast together holds a lot of significance traditionally. People look forward to getting together with family and friends for the iftar meal. On weekends, people get together in public places for the suhoor meal as well.
