Is Ramadan a bad time for non-muslim tourists who are visiting Dubai? Can we eat during our stay in Dubai in the month of Ramadan? What about kids, can they eat or drink during Ramadan? Is alcohol banned in Dubai during Ramadan? What about malls, concerts and bars are they all closed during fasting hours? Through this blog we will try to answer all your Dubai Ramadan queries one by one and even if some are left then feel free to contact us and we will answer it right away. To begin with, cast aside your apprehensions as Ramadan is indeed a Holy month but still a large number of non-muslim tourists visit Dubai during Ramadan and find it quite an amazing rather memorable experience as all that is required is to be a sensible and act like a responsive traveler. Now let us answer your questions one by one. What is Ramadan? Ramadan (Ramadhan /Ramadaan /Ramazan /Ramada) is a Muslim religious observance that takes place during the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. It is believed to be the month in which the Qur'an (Muslim Holy Book) began to be revealed to the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad(P.B.U.H) almost fourteen centuries ago. During this month the gates of Paradise are open and that of Hell are closed so it’s the time for muslims to wash away their sins and enjoy Allah’s unlimited mercy. Muslims are obligated to fast during this entire month. When is Dubai RAMADAN 2011 starting? In 2011, the Holy month of Ramadan is expected to start on Monday 1st of August 2011 and end around 29 or 30 days later on Tuesday 30th of August 2011 (precise timings will depend on sighting of the new moon). Ramadan is followed by 3 day celebration known as Eid-al-Fitr that marks the end of the fasting time. What is fasting in Islam? Fasting is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam and is mandatory to all able-bodied Muslims. While observing fast Muslims are required not only to abstain completely from all bodily pleasures such as eating, drinking, smoking but also from any type of evil deed in the daylight hours otherwise the fast will be broken. By fasting Muslims learn to suppress their worldly desires and spend more time in reading Holy Quran, praying, meditating, being charitable and all that is required to deepen their faith and purify their souls. Are there people who are exempted from fast? Do kids have to fast too? Fasting is mandatory upon those who are sane, healthy and have reached their puberty thus kids are not obligated to fast. Many families although encourage kids to fast in order to train them for future fasting. How do Muslims celebrate Ramadan in Dubai? Dubai is a city of celebration so it welcomes Ramadan in its own unique way. Families get up early for a meal known as “Suhoor” to commence their fast. After the sun sets, the fast is broken with a meal known as “Iftar”. A traditional way to break Ramadan fast is by having dates and Arabic coffee. It’s because of this change in routine, life in Dubai turns almost upside down as in the day light hours there is little or no activity but the city comes alive at the night. During Ramadan in Dubai you will get a chance to see several large air-conditioned Arabic tents known as Majlis and Jaimas being set up by all the major hotels of Dubai on the famous Dubai beaches or at the rooftops. Ethnic yet luxurious, these tents give visitors an insight of the rich Arabic culture with its Persian carpets, colored-glass lanterns, glowing palm trees and Arabic folk music. Ramadan Tents in Dubai offer visitors a firsthand chance to enjoy Dubai life in its true form. Foreigners can mingle with locals, savor Ramadan buffets of local dishes (such as harees, falafel, matchbous, and balaleet) and enjoy Arabic drinks such as Salep (a milky drink flavored with nuts and cinnamon) or Jallab, (date juice with...
