Ramadan – Iftar

Last Thursday my husband, me and some friends had dinner at Ramadan Tent organized at St.Regis.
Actually most of best hotels in the city organized this kind of tents where they “offer” food for Suhoor and Iftar.
But what is Suhoor and what is Iftar? I heard these two words for the first time less than two weeks ago.  I told you, I was totally uninformed about Ramadan’s traditions before coming in Doha.
Suhoor is the meal eaten before the dawn. Muslims must to fast for all the day, from the dawn to the dark.  Since the Suhoor is intended to last throughout the day, foods are usually heavy.
Iftar is the meal eaten after Maghrib prayer when Muslims can break their fast. Normally they break their fast eating dates. Then they start the Iftar.
The absence of water for the entire day is the thing that really scares me. I drink so much that I really cannot image to stay an entire day with no water. And Muslims have to repeat this for one entire month.
Anyway, during Iftar Muslim thank Allah for the food that they have.
Ramadan tents offer traditional food as other international food. I ate hummous, a lot of dryed fruits and a huge quantity of sweets! The stand of desserts was the biggest one, located in the middle of the Granbaloon room of St Regis.
It was a very good experience, I have to say it. But honestly for me it’s still really hard to understand some aspects of this tradition!

I heard about this tradition during the time I lived in Mangalia at my muslin friends. After this period they spoiled me with baklava... sweet memories!

Che meraviglia! Quel cibo sembra delizioso :) ma la parte di stare senza acqua per tutto il giorno preoccuperebbe anche me, sono un po' fissata con il bere costantemente XD
Mi è piaciuto molto questo post, è sempre interessante imparere cose nuove su culture diverse :)

Devono essere buonissime le pietanze!!! Acquolina in bocca!

Ciao Chiara, a dire il vero anche io non ci riuscirei proprio, l'aspetto dell'acqua terrorizza anche me! Li ammiro davvero! Deve essere stata comunque una bella esperienza parteciparvi. Un bacione!

Nemmeno io conoscevo nei dettagli i piatti che si mangiano prima dell'inizio del ramadan! In ogni caso dev'essere proprio dura farlo!!
