What is Ramadan?
Updated on 02 May 2017

The word Ramadan comes from the Arabic root ‘ramida’ meaning dryness or scorching heat, and is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The Islamic calendar uses the phases of the moon to mark its days, usually 344 or 345 days per year, and the sighting of the new moon marks the start and end of Ramadan. In the 365 day Gregorian calendar, Ramadan falls approximately 11 days earlier each year.

Muslims believe that during Ramadan, Allah revealed the first verses of the Quran to the Prophet Mohammed - Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH), and honour the holy month with prayer, fasting and charity.

To fast means not to eat or drink (including water) during daylight hours. Muslims are also expected to abstain from smoking, sexual relations and speaking sinfully. While non-Muslims are not required to fast, they are legally obliged not to eat, drink or smoke in public places. If you break the rules, you will probably receive a verbal warning, but be careful, short jail sentences have been handed out in the past. Generally speaking, the police are lenient, but your understanding and cooperation are expected and very much appreciated by the authorities. Of course you may eat, drink and smoke behind closed doors and many restaurants and hotels continue to serve food behind screened-off areas.

Activities peak in the evening as observers break their fast with their families, and Dubai’s plethora of eateries come to life with dedicated menus and even purpose-built marquees with special food and entertainment. Even for those not fasting, this is a wonderful time to learn more about Emirati culture and traditions between 27th May and 25th June.

Here’s some of our favourites places to break the fast.
