Breaking Their Fast

South Asian workers in a labor camp in the United Arab Emirates enjoy their last iftar before Eid al-Fitr begins.
Traditionally, iftar begins with dates and water, in honor of the way that the Prophet Muhammad broke his fast. An imam at the labor camp said that more than a thousand workers break their fasts in the camp’s streets every night during Ramadan.
