The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down,
a guidance for the people, and clear verses of guidance and criterion.
[Quran: Chapter 2:183]

Ramadan 2008 Day 6 - What I had for Iftar

Ramadan Iftar Pictures: What Are We All Eating?

I thought it would be a good idea to post pictures of what we are having for Iftar.

This picture below is from a family in Singapore. They had light chicken rolls and sandwiches for Iftar on Saturday (Day 6 of Ramadan 2008). According to them, they prefer to have something simple and light, so that it is easily digested.

This picture below is from Jordan featuring a popular fried food from the Middle East called Qatayyif, which is dough stuffed with cheese, and topped with a hot simple syrup.

The recipe for making Qatayyif is simple - usually store-bought flat pancakes are bought, then cheese, or other fillings are placed into the center of the pancakes. Then they are folded over and deep fried. The fried Qatayyif is served with hot sweet syrup.

Please email us at ramadanblog[at] to send us your iftar pictures, ramadan recipes, articles or Ramadan reflections.

We will welcome your contributions!

Special Ramadan Series

Dear Reader, Assalaamu’alaikum.

Ramadan Mubarak. We wish you a blessed and productive Ramadan! Make no mistake about it - keeping the fast and increasing our acts of worship during this blessed month is not an easy task. The physical demands of balancing work or school with fasting all day, feeling fatigued and less effective than you normally are, waking up for Suhoor, praying Teraweeh and Tahajjud prayers, dealing with sleep deficits.

But the last thing we would want is to let Ramadan pass us by without doing all that we aim and desire to. Do not allow yourself to feel guilty or regretful when Ramadan passes.

The Ramadan Series will send you emails with practical tips on how to gain and maintain the physical and spiritual energy necessary to embark on increased religious oligations so that you will reap the benefits from this blessed month. This includes special Ramadan duas to say during the month. Do sign-up today!
