Today, marks the first day of Ramadhan, the 9th month in the Islamic calender where Muslims all over the world spend their days fasting from sunrise to sunset - abstain from food, drink and refocus their attention to God. It is more than just refraining from food and drinks but also from evil action, thoughts and words. It is the month of giving and strengthening ties between family and friends.
During this month in Dubai, the restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day and eating, drinking or smoking in public is prohibited. So, things will slow down a bit. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the Muslim readers and friends all around the world 'Ramadhan Kareem' and may this month brings peace, wisdom and the world together.
