Giving Iftar highly recommended deed during Ramadan

The holy month of Ramadan is much more that refraining from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset; it is a perfect time for self-reflection, spiritual development, devotion and compassion.

Iran (IMNA) - Muslims observe the sacred month of Ramadan to mark when God sent the angel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammad to reveal the Quran, the Islamic holy book, in 610 AD.

In the holy book (the Quran- Surah Al- Qadr), Allah says:

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Indeed, ˹it is˺ We ˹Who˺ sent this ˹Quran˺ down on the Night of Glory.

And what will make you realize what the Night of Glory is?

The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months.

That night the angels and the ˹holy˺ spirit descend, by the permission of their Lord, for every ˹decreed˺ matter.

It is all peace until the break of dawn.

Ramadan is the month that aims to purify the soul and bring the Muslims closer to God.

During Ramadan, all Muslim community practice fasting by eating and drinking only twice a day; a pre-fast meal at dawn called ‘suhur’, and an evening meal after sunset called ‘iftar’.
