Ramadan is a special time in Islamabad, as it allows individuals to come together and observe the holy month with devotion and dedication. During Sehri time, the city is filled with peace and tranquility, as individuals wake up early to have their meal before beginning their fast.

The people of Islamabad eagerly prepare for the arrival of the holy month of Ramadan by making special arrangements. Many individuals begin their preparations weeks in advance.

During this month of blessings, people strive to perform numerous good deeds and engage in acts of kindness. Many individuals try to help the needy and the poor by giving charity and providing food, which embodies the true spirit of the month of Ramadan.

Overall, the people of Islamabad embrace the spirit of Ramadan by making the most of this special time to cultivate a greater sense of community, compassion, and devotion.


Significance of Iftar Time

Iftar time marks the end of the day-long fast and is a time of celebration and gratitude. Muslims break their fast with dates and water, a Sunnah (prophetic tradition) of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

After the dates and water, a meal is usually served, known as the Iftar meal. This meal is often shared with family, friends, and neighbors, and it is a time of community, fellowship, and togetherness.

Iftar time is also significant because it is a time for Muslims to practice gratitude and show compassion towards others. Muslims are encouraged to share their food with those who are less fortunate, and it is common to see Iftar tents set up for this purpose during Ramadan.

These tents are open to everyone, regardless of their religion or background, and they serve as a symbol of the generosity and hospitality that is so deeply ingrained in Islamic tradition.

Moreover, Iftar time holds a spiritual significance as well. Muslims believe this is when Allah is particularly receptive to their prayers and supplications.

It is a time for introspection, reflection, and a chance to seek forgiveness for sins committed during the day. It is believed that the gates of heaven are open during this time and that Allah’s mercy and blessings are particularly abundant.


Iftar Dua


Making dua during Iftar time is a way for Muslims to seek Allah's blessings, guidance, and forgiveness.


Making dua during Iftar time is a way for Muslims to seek Allah’s blessings, guidance, and forgiveness. It is an opportunity to connect with Allah and to ask for His help and protection.

Muslims believe that dua is a powerful tool that can bring about positive changes in their lives and that it is a way to express their gratitude and reliance on Allah.

A dua or supplication during Iftar time is also a way to show gratitude for the blessings of food and drink that Allah has provided. Muslims recognize that not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to such necessities, and making dua for these blessings serves as a reminder of the importance of compassion, empathy, and generosity.


“Allahumma inni laka sumtu wa bika aamantu wa ‘ala rizq-ika aftarthu”

Translation: “O Allah, I fasted for You, and I believe in You, and I break my fast with Your sustenance.”

“Allahumma taqabbal minna innaka antas Samee-ul-‘Aleem”

Translation: “O Allah, accept it from us, indeed You are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.”


Celebrating Ramadan in Islamabad

Ramadan is celebrated all around the world. The residents of Islamabad understand the essence of the month of Ramadan and come together to share their meals during Sehri and Iftar time. Typically, individuals enjoy their Sehri meals at home with their families.

The Faisal Mosque is a well-known location where people gather to break their fast, either by sharing Iftar boxes with others or by coming together to break their fast in a communal setting. This sense of unity and togetherness during Ramadan reflects the importance of community and the spirit of generosity central to the holy month.

In addition to sharing meals during Sehri and Iftar time, people in Islamabad also organise iftar parties at their homes, where they gather with friends, family, and neighbors to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.

Furthermore, Iftar drives are often organised to assist those in need. The spirit of Ramadan brings a sense of peace, unity, and blessings to everyone in Islamabad, and Muslims throughout the city can experience the many blessings of the month, which bring them closer to their faith and each other.

The holy month of Ramadan is typically 29 or 30 days long, divided into ten segments known as Ashra, each with a different theme, such as mercy, forgiveness, and salvation. One of the virtues of fasting during Ramadan is that it instills a desire to give to those in need.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was known for his incredible generosity, particularly during the month of Ramadan. Muslims worldwide strive to follow his example by helping others, particularly with the basic need of food, during this holy month.

This spirit of giving and compassion is a central part of the Ramadan experience. It serves to bring people together in a shared commitment to helping others and spreading kindness and compassion throughout the community.
