The sounding of the cannon marks the time of iftar

Historically, cannons were used to alert people about the call to prayer from village to village.

The firing of the Ramadan cannon above Sarajevo is a tradition of Bosnian Muslims over a hundred years old, which was abolished during the reign of the previous political regime, but it has been revived in the early 90's.

Thousands of Muslims, every night of the month of Ramadan, are awaiting a shoot, indicating that it is time to start the iftar after a full day fast.
