Mawaad El Rahman is an annual charity tradition, in which food is offered for free on the streets at the time of Iftar, the time of breaking the fast. It is usually offered to poor people who cannot afford food and those who are on the streets at the time of Iftar.

Last week, a Synagogue in Cairo held a similar iftar event aimed at promoting unity among Egyptians.
