As Ramadan 2024 approaches, Muslims around the world are preparing themselves to observe one of the five pillars of Islam – the Ramadan fast. During the holy month, Muslims abstain from food and drink from dawn until dusk. To break the fast at sunset, Muslims have Iftar, which is the meal that marks the end of the daily fast during Ramadan.

To enhance your enjoyment, numerous venues and restaurants in Qatar have organised delightful Iftar buffets and tables this year. If you plan to break your fast outside, here is Wego‘s list of recommended Qatar Iftar buffet events in 2024.

Why opt for Iftar buffet?

In Qatar, an iftar buffet is a popular option during the holy month of Ramadan. It offers a wide range of dishes, including traditional Ramadan delicacies, which provides an opportunity to try out new dishes and flavours. Iftar buffet also provides a convenient option where people can break their fast with a variety of dishes without having to cook or clean up.

Qatar Charity

As part of its Leave Your Mark campaign, Qatar Charity, just like last year, is organising programs for low-income individuals in Qatar, encompassing various projects.

While the exact details of Qatar Charity’s program are not yet known, it typically focuses on providing Iftar snacks to individuals working at traffic signals who may be unable to make it home in time for the Adhaan of the Maghrib prayer. Last year, their “Mobile Iftar for Workers” initiative successfully distributed ready-to-eat meals to 108,000 workers at their respective residences.

In facilitating the breaking of the fast during Ramadan, approximately 34 sharing tables were set up at various locations throughout Qatar as part of the “Iftar Tables” program. Workers not only enjoyed Iftar delicacies but also received Ramadan sermons delivered in their respective languages.

The “Iftar for Expatriates” program is specifically designed to benefit both workers and low-income expatriate families. Furthermore, the “From Home to Home” initiative aims to deliver meals prepared by Qatari families to those with limited income. These initiatives showcase Qatar Charity’s commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of the less fortunate in the community.
