Sheikh Muhammad bin Rashid Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU) has organized daily Emirati Iftars open to the public to educate them about the customs of Ramadan.
You don’t have to be Muslim to experience a traditional Iftar in Dubai. The SMCUU located in the bustling Al-Fahidi district have set up a daily, breaking of the fast event that is set inside the courtyard of a wind-tower house with Emirati hosts.
The evening commences by breaking the fast with Arabic dates and coffee once the call to prayer is heard. Once the hosts have finished their prayers the Iftar is served. The food consists of a medley of typical Emirati savory dishes that include fresh juices, light mezza and wholesome mains. Whilst eating guests are encouraged to ask questions related to Ramadan and the culture and traditions of the UAE. Visitors are then taken for a tour of Diwan Masjid and then brought back to the house to enjoy local dessert and tea before the evening draws to a close.
This Iftar experience is an ideal way for expat families living in Dubai to become acquainted and understand the customs and manner in which Ramadan is observed in the UAE.
The price is 135 AED per person and children under 12 are free.
From Saturday 20th of June to Wednesday 15 of July 2015.
