Here’s Where You Can Catch The Ramadan Iftar Cannons In The UAE


The Iftar Ramadan cannon is a tradition as old as time and they say it originated in Egypt. The UAE also practices the same tradition during the Holy Month.

Dubai Police have been firing the cannon for years at every sunset right before Maghrib prayers to signal the end of the daily fast in Dubai. Each year, they set up in a few locations with some being fixed, like just below the Burj Khalifa or at Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
