Mass iftaars around the world and locally have blown up social media. But Egypt has taken the date!
Egypt has won a Guinness World Record for the world's longest iftaar table. The enormous table, which was over 3,000 metres long, hosted nearly 7,000 people. It was set up in the country's new administrative capital, which is being built east of Cairo.
The previous world record was set in 2018 by the Ajman municipality in the United Arab Emirates, with a table measuring 2,983.64 metres, serving 6,000 people.
The table in Egypt beat the former record by 200 metres, measuring at 3189.83 metres.
