Open Iftar

What is Open Iftar?

Open Iftar is the first global community-led public iftar campaign, inviting Muslims & people of all faiths, cultural backgrounds, ages, and anyone that may be in need of a safe, nurturing space, to join together to partake of the community spirit and explore the Islamic faith through food, inspirational talks, and engaging discussion. Open Iftar bridges communities; it is a space in which our commonalities are highlighted, our differences celebrated, and human connection is forged.

We’ve hosted over 50,000 guests across 7 cities and 4 continents including London, Portland (USA), Toronto (Canada), Istanbul (Turkey) and Ndola (Zambia) since its inception. In addition, Open Iftar has generated unprecedented international press coverage from the USA to Malaysia. Featuring in BBC, The Guardian, Buzzfeed News, TRT World, Press TV, Geo TV, Al Arabiya & others.

The initiative was shortlisted as one of 50 Most Innovative Global Muslim Startups in 2016. Our event has attracted premium brands and speakers from modest fashion, halal food, lifestyle, finance, music, art, media & technology, sport & business, Premier League football stars, entertainment, diplomacy, the UN, the EU, world famous entrepreneurs, prominent public figures and many more!
