Calendar of Events






The Holy Month of Ramadan
June 28 - July 27, 2014
The Holy Month of Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is a time of fasting, prayer, and community. Families rise before the sun and observe the pre-dawn meal, ‘Suhoor’, and then observe the fast until ‘Iftar’, the fast breaking meal at sunset which commences with the eating of dates. One of the most important aspects of Ramadan is ‘Zakat’, a certain percentage of one’s income that is donated to charity or to the needy, which along with ‘Sadaqa’, voluntary service, fulfills one’s obligations to the community and to the less fortunate. One of the best examples of this is at The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, where Iftar meals are distributed to the over 150 thousand people who gather to pray together. In Abu Dhabi, those who wish to feel a part of the spirit of Ramadan can partake in Iftar meals offered all over the city, or participate in Ramadan volunteer programs, such as those offered by the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural understanding.
