The difference between these two meals is clear as night and day. Sehr has a very Spartan feel to it. You get up early in the morning when you’re dead tired. The last thing you want to do is have a nice big meal. But you somehow find the strength to meet this challenge. On the other hand Iftar is much more joyous. All day you went without food and drink (plus intimate contact), you’re faith has been tested and you made it!
And the guest pour in:
Breaking fast is a pleasure for all:
Here’s a picture of my boss (he’s the one in the black and white striped shirt, sporting some very white collars and cuffs). He’s a pretty cool guy, very approachable.
All in all it was a great day, great company, great food, who could ask for more? The end of Ramadan is marked by a celebration known as Eid. It’s going to happen sometime next week (depends on the sighting of the moon). This holiday is the Muslim equivalent of Christmas. It’s a time for family, presents and celebration. I’ll have highlights from that day as well, stay tuned.
