Suhur & Iftar- The Two Main Meals Eaten During Ramadan


During the season of fasting for Muslims, they mainly eat during two times of the day- Suhur (pre-dawn) and Iftar(after the sunset). Suhur usually contains energy-rich foods with lots of proteins and carbs. This will help the ones who fast endure throughout the day.
