Witter also made partnership with  @AlArabiya to help twitter users find out, with a Tweet, what time each day they can break the fast. Starting tomorrow, tweet @AlArabiya with #iftar followed by the name of your city with a # immediately in front (e.g. #Dubai), and the @AlArabiya account will send you the time for #iftar. This also works for #Imsak (or beginning the fast).here’s an example

[php]echo ‘<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p><a href=””>@AlArabiya</a> <a href=””>#Iftar</a> <a href=””>#Singapore</a></p>&mdash; Amged | أمجد (@Amged) <a href=”″>June 28, 2014</a></blockquote>
