So here is a quick post about Ramadan! The month of Ramadan started here in Pakistan yesterday and we had our second fast today. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is the month of fasting. We Muslims fast everyday for a month. Fast starts at the time of dawn after Fajr prayers which time is known as Sehri or Sehr in Urdu, the national language of Pakistan. A good meal is taken at the time of Sehr to make you get going for the long day and the fast is broken with a meal after Maghrib prayers i.e. just before sunset. This meal is known as Iftar or Iftari. We are all extremely excited about Ramadan and one thing all the kids are always excited about is all the food and snacks prepared for Iftar 😀
