Citizens of Tehran can break their fast in Iftar ceremonies held every night during the holy month of Ramadan in Imam Hussein Square.

The Iftar dinner is held after collective reciting of the Holy Quran and congressional prayers following sunset during the holy month.

The meal includes a piece of bread, a cup of tea, a piece of cheese, a bowl of haleem, some dates and water.

Iftar is the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. Muslim people break their fast at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer.

This is their second meal of the day; the daily fast during Ramadan begins immediately after the pre-dawn meal of Sahur (or Sahari in Persian) and continues during the daylight hours, ending with sunset with the evening meal of Iftar.

What follows are Mizan News Agency’s photos of the Iftar ceremonies in Tehran’s Imam Hussein Square:
