Rules of Ramadan Food and Eating during Fasting Hours

The fasting hours are the only time that Muslims do not eat or drink anything during the day. The Islamic month starts with Ramadan and is usually around 30 days long. There are a few rules for fasting hours, and the most important one is to not break your fast with any food or drinks. Some people make exceptions and break their fast with:

  • Water
  • Dates
  • Fruit juices
  • Sport drinks

Sehri and Iftar

Sehri is the meal eaten by Muslims during their pre-dawn meal. This meal is to help them get ready for the fast until sunset. Muslims are required to do this ritual before they can break their fasts at sunset. Some of the popular foods that would be eaten during this time include dates, milk and water.

Iftar is a time for Muslims to break their fasts. Ramadan is a month long celebration in the Muslim faith during which they do not consume anything from sunrise to sunset. The only thing they can consume in this period is water and food that breaks their fast. Iftars are usually family events where each member brings a dish or dessert to share with the others, and spend time together after a day of fasting.
