Birmingham mosques open doors for free iftar meals during Ramadan

Sharing is caring!

Mosques across Birmingham are inviting members of the public to join them for iftar – the meal served at the end of each day of fasting during Ramadan.

The holy month involves fasting from early in the morning to sunset, with meals at either end of the day. The pre-dawn meal is called suhoor and the evening meal is known as iftar.

Muslims sometimes eat these meals at home with their families or head out to halal restaurants. Another option is to attend one of the community feasts held at local mosques.

As part of a Faith Associates initiative, hundreds of mosques and Islamic centres across the UK are hosting these iftars and inviting anyone to come along and join them.

The iftars are completely free, and donations are not expected. Some people may make a small donation to be polite, but these are likely to be made privately (such as by dropping a few coins at the donation box you often find at a mosque’s entrance).

Nine mosques and centres in Birmingham are having open Iftars:
