The inter-faith Iftar was also a reaffirmation that all religions teach to love God and love your neighbours.

From Abu Dhabi-

A church in Abu Dhabi opened its doors to Muslims to host an inter-faith Iftar on Wednesday in a gesture to celebrate the UAE's religious harmony.
More than 150 people attended the Iftar hosted by St. Andrew's Anglican Church that is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
"This is the first time we are hosting this kind of Iftar. We asked our church members to invite their Muslim friends and each member brought along one. This is our way of celebrating the legacy of Sheikh Zayed in the Year of Zayed, and the same year when we are celebrating our 50thanniversary," Rev Canon Andrew Thompson, Senior Anglican Priest told Khaleej Times.
"There were smiles on every face. There was so much happiness shared. The Iftar was proof that a simple meal can bring together people from different faiths and create the bond of friendship."
