Ramadan in Dubai 2018
Ramadan in Dubai 2018 began on May 17, 2018. It marks the beginning of the holiest time of the Muslim community and one of the five pillars of Islam. It falls on the 9th month of the Islamic calendar.
This month-long of fasting is the time when Prophet Mohammed first learned of the Holy Quran, a religious text of Islam as a revelation of God. A special Muslim Tarawih prayer is performed during Ramadan. Also, 1/30th of the Quran is recited each night. So by the end of Ramadan, a Muslim observer could have finished the entire Quran.
Fasting symbolizes Muslims’ empathy to those who have less in life and their practice of self-disciple, restraint, gratitude, charity, and spiritiual purification. During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking, and sexual activity from dusk to sunset for one long month. Non-Muslims are expected to behave considerately, which means no drinking, eating or smoking in public during the daylight hours of Ramadan as respect for our Muslim brothers and sisters,
In Dubai, where a variety of religions are expressed and respected, non-Muslims are not restricted to the fasting rules. Plenty of restaurants and bars are able to obtain permit to operate as usual, including serving of alcohol during daytime. Brunchy has updated its list of venues, where you can still enjoy eating and drinking during the day, with respect to practising Muslims.
