#iftartweetup @ Leila’s ABC Debbayeh

What happens when you tell your friends on twitter that you’ve never been to an Iftar* before?  They organize one for you!  Thank you tweeps!

*An Iftar refers to the evening meal when Muslims break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together. Iftar is done right after Maghrib (sunset) time. Traditionally, a date is the first thing to be consumed when the fast is broken. credit
