Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadhan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast with an evening meal at the end of the daily Ramadhan fast.
During the Ramadhan period, Muslims on the Airtel network were given access to the Islamic Religious Portal where they can subscribe and access Qur’an recitations, receive prayer alerts and listen to Nasheeds, hadiths and mawaidhas among others. One can subscribe to the portal by dialing 301786.
