The holy month of Ramadan is going to end next week. During Ramadan, Muslim people keep a fast for 30 days, called Roza. According to the Islamic calendar, the holy month of Ramadan comes after the completion of nine months. It is believed that Allah blesses those who keep Roza during this sacred month. According to Islamic beliefs, food is served only twice in Ramadan. One Sehri (dawn) and the other Iftari (after sunset). Adults and children who are mentally and physically healthy have to fast. In Islam, the elderly, sick, pregnant, lactating women and those on their period are exempted from fasting. Eating clean and healthy food is extremely important during Ramadan. So today, we have brought you some easy recipes for Sehri and Iftari that are delicious and help you stay healthy.
