Iftar is an important meal for you to replenish yourselves after a full day of fasting and it’s important that the right things are being eaten. Traditionally, dates and water are the first things consumed at iftar, following the example of the Prophet Muhammad.
After that, a full meal is served, which typically includes a variety of dishes and can vary depending on the culture and region. Even though Northern Nigeria has the highest number of Muslims, there are thriving Muslim communities in Lagos as well. As a result, Halal delicacies are offered in a good number of establishments.
