The Iranians are using the ancient Persian tradition of “Nazr” (distributing free foods among the people) to cook Nazri (charity food) during the holy month of Ramadan.
It’s an ancient Persian tradition that the people cook food and give it to others, including the poor, friends and family, in their ceremonies.
This charity food or free food, is called Nazri. In fact, Iranians donate food and call it Nazr. The main food or Nazri in Ramadan is “Ash”, a traditional persian food.
In Ramadan, and also in Muharram and in Ashura days, you can see people who line up to get Nazri foods. They do it because Nazri foods are very delicious.
In the days of Ramadan, you can see the ordinary boys and girls that have a Nazri food in their hands, or eat Nazri foods with each other’s, and are happy and enjoy their day.
In Islam, Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, introspection and prayer. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Each day during Ramadan, followers of Islam, known as Muslims, do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset.
