How Madinah residents prepare Ramadan meals at Prophet’s mosque

JEDDAH: The residents of Madinah have been using the Muslim holy month of Ramadan to take the opportunity to welcome worshippers at Al-Masjid An-Nabawi (the Prophet’s Mosque) and express their hospitality.
Iftar gatherings such as these bring the Madinah community together to socialize and challenge one another in performing good deeds.
The Saudi Press Agency (SPA) took a series of photos that reflect the Ramadan spirit at the Prophet’s mosque, with Madinah residents rushing to serve worshippers Iftar (break fast) meals prepared from the best local cuisine.
A unit dedicated to serving Iftar has provided a guide for those who want to serve meals. Servers are licensed to do so and are fully responsible for the quality of food. Any violations would result in canceling the license and giving the opportunity to another company.
The Iftar meals during Ramadan include tea, coffee, yogurt, bread, rice, meat, fruits and juices.
The food is served in areas of the mosque’s outside courts, designated for fasters to realx and enjoy their meals.
The Iftar meals are prepared right after Asr prayers, and organizers enter the mosque from special gates assigned to accomplish these tasks.
Food inspectors ensure that nothing but the permitted meals are allowed to be served for worshippers.
At sunset prayers, the meals are prepared, and right before prayers are held, the meals are distributed to provide space for worshippers to pray.
