Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection, improvement and increased devotion and worship. The entire month is dedicated to fasting which is observed from sunrise to sunset. The time when fast is broken is called Iftar and, during this, all the family members come together to break the fast.  However, there are times when people are travelling or are in office and don’t get a chance to reach home. So if you are in Mumbai and don’t know what to do, then you can visit these places where people arrange free Iftar for travellers, office goers and for everyone who wants to eat. So when you are stuck and don’t know where to break your Iftar, then just visit these places in Mumbai.

Every mosque in the world arranges free Iftar for people, and anyone can go in and break their fast. So next time when you are far from home, you can visit a nearby mosque, to break your fast.
