Muslim tradition tells that as the waters began to recede, Prophet Noah and his family gathered up all of the food remaining on the Ark and made a delicious meal out of it.
In remembrance of Prophet Noah and as a thanksgiving to God, the people of Anatolia and other Muslims have made it a custom to prepare Noah’s Pudding, traditionally known as ‘Ashurah,’ on this day and share it with neighbours and friends.
The story of Noah’s Pudding and the custom of preparing such a pudding and sharing this with neighbours and friends is Muslim tradition and not a religious practice. However, it is a pleasant custom that is most useful for bringing people together around a commonly known story. Whether one believes in Prophet Noah or not, most will have heard of the story of the Great Flood.
