What is Iftar?

Iftar is the meal served at the end of the day during Ramadan to break the day's fast. Ramadan is an annual time of dedication to refocus on purifying Muslims' souls and conduct through self-reflection, self-sacrifice, and prayer. Each day of Ramadan, from dawn to sunset, Muslims practice compulsory fasting. This year, Ramadan is from May 5 to June 4th.

 

What do I need to know about going to a Muslim’s home on Iftar?

  1. First of all, you are our guest. There is no need to bring anything.

  2. When you enter the home, you will be asked to take off your shoes. You may want to bring socks or some slippers to wear.

  3. Do you need to fast until 8:35? No, there will be some snacks for you to eat if you would like.

  4. What time will this Iftar end?  You are welcome to stay until you want to leave; however, since you may have a long drive home, you may plan on leaving after the meal is finished around 10:15.

  5. What kind of food can you expect? There will be traditional Turkish food and options for vegans and vegetarians. Some of the food you can expect are:
