Ramadan 2023: On the blessed mornings of Ramzan, one must begin with sehri, or breakfast, to stay hydrated and nourished until dusk.
For one month every year during Ramadan (also known as Ramzan), Muslims around the world observe fasting to connect with Allah. A typical day in Ramadan begins at dawn with suhoor or very early prayers and ends after sunset with an iftar meal.
Fasting during Ramadan is incomplete without eating Sehri, the morning meal that should be consumed before sunrise to provide energy and hydration throughout the day.
Furthermore, this pre-dawn meal or sehri is consumed prior to offering the Fajr prayer – the first of five prayers offered daily – which helps ensure proper nutrient absorption throughout the day.
After eating sehri, people recite Roze ki Neeyat – a single verse prayer that officially marks the start of Ramadan’s dawn-to-dusk fast. In order for those who fast during Ramadan to remain energetic and hydrated throughout the day, let’s explore some traditional sehri dishes enjoyed during this month of Ramzan.
