Watch: Michelle Obama Wines and Dines with Islamic Royal Family to Celebrate Ramadan

Posted: Jun 29, 2016 3:00 PM

Michelle Obama and her two daughters were in Morocco on Tuesday celebrating Ramadan, the Islamic holiday that commemorates the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad.  

While dining with the royal family, the trio broke bread and participated in the ritual known as Iftar, an evening meal that is conducted after a day of fasting.  

The celebration of Iftar requires a prayer to Allah before receiving the meal.

"O Allah! it is for thee that I observe fast and it is with Thine blessing that I break it."

Obama is traveling this summer with her daughters and mother to Liberia, Morocco, and Spain to spread her “Let Girls Learn” initiative.
