Ramadan 2019

Iftar is referred to as the break of fat during Ramadan and is observed with great enthusiasm and joy. It is also often observed in a community fashion where large groups of people come together to enjoy the evening meal. Most of the time it is the extended family members who participate but larger gatherings such as entire village members participating are also common.

The holy month of Ramadan is a prominent time. It is a month of togetherness, for families to gather and celebrate. Fasting will take place from dawn and end it just after the call to prayer (Maghrib) in the evening after the sunset. In the evening the meal that normally breaks the is called Iftar (meaning ‘break fast’) and is usually begun by eating fruits (three dates traditionally).

Iftar in Dubai

Like any other place, Iftar is observed quite enthusiastically in Dubai also. In fact, Dubai is famous for its Iftar. All the restaurants and hotels, big and small, make elaborate arrangements and advertise their menus. Joyous greetings of ‘Ramadan Mubarak’ (i.e. Blessed Ramadan) and ‘Ramadan Kareem’ (i.e. Generous Ramadan) fill the air at these places as friends and family meet and greet each other at the day’s end. The timing of Iftar will depend on the time of sunset, in Dubai is around 7 pm.
