Ramadan

🗓 March 9 - April 8, 2024 📍Worldwide


The Holy Month of Ramadan holds profound significance in both the region and globally, marking a time when the faithful devote themselves to introspection, aiming to deepen their spirituality. Throughout this sacred period, Muslims observe fasting from sunrise to sunset, a fundamental practice aligned with one of the five pillars of Islam. As the daylight hours unfold slowly, the region experiences a vibrant resurgence after sunset. The breaking of the fast, known as iftar, becomes a cherished moment, drawing friends and family together to share in the evening meal. This communal gathering extends late into the night, fostering social connections and creating a lively atmosphere before the pre-dawn meal, suhoor, marks the beginning of a new fasting day.


Dubai World Cup
