Throughout the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims are required to abstain from eating or drinking from Suhoor (before dawn or twilight) until Maghrib (sunset). Besides, it is also the month that provides the opportunity for family and friends to get together to break their fast at sunset with refreshing food and beverages, also known as Buka Puasa or Iftar.
