Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr

RamadanThe month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is a special time for Muslims all around the world. And in Muslim cities it acquires a special significance. For the whole of Ramadan, the Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, abstaining from food and water. With the onset of the dark, however, a veritable feast is laid out for the fasting individuals, and in Dubai, the whole city comes alive to partake of delicacies available both on the streets and in restaurants. Ramadan ends with the arrival of the new moon on the last day of fasting, and heralds a day of celebration called Eid ul Fitr.

Eid ul Fitr signals the end of the long fasts held during the month of Ramadan. Fasting on this day is forbidden; instead, the whole day is dedicated to celebrations and good cheer. Muslim families’ visit mosques, relatives get together, and a general feeling of good-will spreads throughout the city as one and all celebrate the close of Ramadan.
