What is Suhoor?
It is one of the Muslims’ meals in Ramadan.This meal is consumed early in the Morning before Fajr or Dawn.Don’t underestimate the importance of this meal as it is the backbone of your day, So everyone has to take care of preparing it.In this meal one has to prepare healthy food to help him to remain in good health for the rest of the day.Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) asked us to care about it, and not to skip it and he said: “Tasaharo faena fe Suhoori Barakah”.This means to care about it as it will give you the power to be able to complete your day.This is Suhoor, what is Iftar?This is the second meal of Muslims in Ramadan.Muslims have this meal during sunset after Maghrib, when they are used to prepare the most delicious food. At Iftar time, family and friends gather to break their fast by having Iftar.Iftar is also important but the most important meal youhave to have is Suhoor.
