Breaking Fast in England

Dina Begum is British-Bangladeshi and lives in London, where she is preparing for iftar. Her menu tonight is full of Bangladeshi dishes served on special occasions, including dali bora (lentil fritters)—they’re crispy, crunchy and one of Dina’s favorites. Having spent the day praying and cooking, she looks forward to breaking the Ramadan fast and connecting with others through food.

Ramadan, or Ramzan, is annually observed by Muslims around the world as a holy month of fasting, prayer and community. During this time, those observing will fast from dawn to sunset, refraining from eating or drinking as a means of purifying the body, mind and heart.

After sunset, many will gather to break their fast with family and friends, sharing a meal known as an iftar. Around the world, the languages and the foods might change, but the spirit of love and togetherness is all the same.
