Ahed Saed Al-Homsi lives in Damascus, Syria, and she says Ramadan here isn’t the same as it used to be. “Most families have been separated by the Syrian war, so the intimacy of Ramadan is not really there,” she explains. That said, Ahed still shares love through food, making an iftar meal of chicken fricka, lentil soup, fattoush salad, yogurt salad and french fries.
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.
