Among the many activities carried out by the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine during the holy month of Ramadhan is the project for offering the Iftar meal for the fasting believers "And on Your Rizk we have broken our fast" mostly to the visitors of the holy shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) by the daily distribution of a light Iftar meal to the visitors inside the holy shrine and in the expansion basements, and sometimes outside the holy shrine.
According to the officials of this project, which is supervised by the service affairs department in cooperation with the host restaurant department, it started since the first days of the holy month of Ramadhan, based on the commands of the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household): "O people! Whoever among you provides Iftar to a believer during this month will receive a reward equal to one who sets a slave free, and all his past sins will be forgiven."
Also, there is a desire among visitors to be blessed by eating this meal in this holy place, and on the other hand, the staff of the holy shrine race between each other to present this service, which preparations begins early in every day, especially on Thursdays as the number of visitors is larger to perform the Ziyarat of Friday eve.
The staff of the holy shrine considers this service as having two rewards, the first is the honor to serve the visitors of the holy shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), and the second is to offer the Iftar meal so that the fasting believers break their fast, which are services that have countless reward. The number of beneficiaries of this service is 3000 person per day as a fixed rate to reach up to 10000 person in the special nights such as Friday eves, birth or martyrdom anniversaries or the holy nights of Qadr [Power/Decree].
