Hanan Ahmed welcomes us into her home in Cairo, Egypt, where she—with help from her husband and son—is cooking tonight’s iftar. The most important dish on the menu, according to Hanan, is mutton-okra—a recipe handed down from her mother. “It has never failed to be liked by whoever tastes it,” she says.
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.
