A Scout is Friendly, and one way to build friendship is to share meals together. As many Muslim Scouts around the world fast during Ramadan, families and friends come together and celebrate their daily achievement by doing their duty to God, and this is why Iftar is a very social event. It is typical for Muslims to have Iftar together or to gather for a potluck. That is what this event is mostly about! Most Scouting Iftars are open to ALL Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing and Girl Scouts units including units from other faiths, as well as any non-scouting families.
