Britain's Prince Harry breaks fast with Muslims at the start of his Singapore visit on Sunday, June 4, 2017.
He joined Jamiyah Singapore at Guillemard Crescent for a tradition iftar session, according to a report by Channel NewsAsia. "Iftar" refers to the breaking of fast at sunset during the Muslim month of Ramadan.
Prince Harry received a traditional welcome from ten kompang (Malay hand drum) players. This was a customary way to mark a celebratory occasion in Malay culture. He was also given a silat demonstration, led by former world champion Sheik Alauddin Yacoob Marican.
"Ramadan is a time of reflection, for spending time with family and friends while giving support to those who are less fortunate," said Dr Mohd Hasbi Abu Bakar, president of Jamiyah Singapore. "We are honoured that Prince Harry was able to join us for this iftar and to meet with the young people that are part of the Jamiyah Singapore community."
