U.S. Army soldiers assigned to 2/10 Security Forces Assistance Brigade listen to the Afghan Chief of the National Directorate of Security for Paktika province, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Jasim explain the meaning of Ramazan and the Iftar meal during an Iftar dinner held at the NDS building near Forward Operating Base Rushmore Aug 2, 2013. Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramazan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together. Traditionally but not mandatory, three dates are eaten to break the fast in emulation of the Prophet Muhammad, who broke his fast in this manner.
