IFTAAR IS AN ACT OF IBAADAT- IT IS NOT A MERRYMAKING PARTY
Complaining – with valid Shar’i justification – about the wasteful, haraam partying which is organized at the time of Iftaar in the Musjid in Tongaat, a Brother writes:
“In our masjid I found today iftaar to be like a massive party. Dastarkhans Wer laid from half an hour earlier. Samoosas bajiyas haleem etc all laid. Azaan was suppose to be at 17h13. Azaan went at 17h15. people carried on eating while the azaan was being called out. Eventually jamaat started at 17h23..
Is this correct ? What is the correct method to break the fast in the masjid.if the trustees wish to provide iftaar should kajoor just be provided with zam zam.
