Iftar Dinner Held Under Bosnia’s Historical Mostar Bridge


More than 1,000 people attend iftar, prayer


An iftar, fast-breaking dinner, was organized Tuesday in Bosnia and Herzegovina for 1,300 people at the historical Mostar Bridge.

Youths from the country, as well as Serbia, Montenegro, and Croatia participated at the iftar organized by the country’s Islamic Union.

After the recitation of the adhan, or call to prayer, Muslims broke their fasts which was followed by a congregational prayer.

“We have been holding iftar dinners under the Mostar Bridge for nine years. We are happy to host fasting people from Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region,” said an organizer, Hana Omerika.

Ramadan, the Muslim holy month for fasting, began on March 23 and will continue through April 21 — the first day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday that marks the end of the month.
