Beginning Iftaar by eating meat if there is no date

Question: Is it permissible for a fasting person to begin Iftaar (breaking the Fast) by eating meat if they do not find date?

Answer: It is permissible to break Sawm (Fast) with dates, any type of food, or meat. However, it is better to break Sawm with ripe dates. If one does not find ripe dates, one may eat dried dates. If there are no dried dates, they can break Sawm with water. It was authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to do more here.
