The Kanoo Group hosts 2017 Iftar Party for employees

With reverence for Ramadan as the holiest month of the Islamic calendar, The Kanoo Group once again hosted its annual Iftar Party for all its employees to celebrate the holy season, held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Dubai on June 22, 2017.

The Corporate Iftar was attended by Mr Mishal Kanoo, Chairman of The Kanoo Group and members of the Management, among other employees in the UAE from different departments.

Iftar is an Arabic term which literally means the breaking of the fast. It is the evening meal when Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. Traditionally, they break the fast by water and dates and join together for a holy prayer, then come back to share a delightful meal to end the period of abstinence. The joined holy prayer was led by Mr Mishal Kanoo.

Over time, Iftar has grown into banquet festivals with religious significance and meaning. The Kanoo Group has been organising the event every year as a worthwhile gathering for colleagues and their families, and to share the spirit of solidarity.

For all Muslim communities across the world, Ramadan is a symbol of the same base values of unparalleled importance: family and community, goodwill and charity, and spiritual reflection.
