Iftar is an Arabic word that refers to a meal eaten by Muslims after sunset during Ramadan. Like in other faiths, the act of fasting is a symbolic gesture – to be one’s best, to be empathic and to call to mind other people’s struggle. In recognition of the religious observance of local Muslim communities, from Somalis to Afghanis, the Iftar event is a wonderful opportunity to break the fast together and to learn more about Victoria’s diverse cultural and faith traditions.
The event will commence at 4.30pm, before sunset, with activities for children and an architectural light show programmed throughout the evening. A delicious buffet halal meal produced by Bell Street Mall traders will be provided from sundown, with vegetarian options available.
