Ramadan 2022 in Dubai – Witness a Different Side of Dubai
Ramadan is a month of spiritual self-reflection, refreshment, and ritual practice for Muslims all around the world, symbolized by the dawn to twilight fast. Dubai will take on an entirely different image during Ramadan 2022, as businesses adjust their timetables to accommodate fasting times of the locals.
Dates of Ramadan – 2nd April to 2nd May 2022
While the city is quiet throughout the day, the breaking of the fast at Iftar brings it to life after dusk. With a wealth of cultural activities, now is the best time to observe the emirate from a different perspective, as the season is marked by a sense of collaboration, kindness and religious fervor.
You may enjoy traditional Emirati hospitality and take advantage of shopping specials at branded iftars and suhoors.
Please note that the sight of the moon determines the exact dates of the holy month.
Ramadan in Dubai – What to Expect?
As a part of celebrating and reflecting on their faith, Muslims are expected to fast for 30 days during daytime hours, refraining from eating and drinking, including water.
It is one of Islam’s five pillars – the key commandments that all Muslims must follow – along with the Shahadah (statement of faith), Salat (prayer), Zakat (donation), and the Hajj trip.
Muslims offer extra Salat throughout Ramadan, in which they express their thankfulness to Allah, and the fasting helps them to understand the suffering of others.
Muslims who are fasting are instructed to read the Quran, which is recited at special nocturnal prayers held throughout the month called Tarawih.
Major Attractions of Ramadan 2022 in Dubai
Explore the Time Out Market of Dubai
In observance of Ramadan, which commences on Saturday, April 2, Time Out Market Dubai will change into authentic majlis and serve delicious iftar foods.
Throughout the month, several of the 18 native vendors will be serving a variety of unique foods, and the venue will be decorated for Ramadan.
Mohamad Chamdin, a traditional oud player, will deliver a soundtrack of famous tunes with an Arabic twist every evening from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Time Out Market happens to be a popular attraction during Ramadan 2022 in UAE.
Dubai Attractions are Less Crowded
During the season of Ramadan, the majority of Dubai’s main monuments, amusement parks, malls, and tourist attractions are open and offer significant ticket discounts. Throughout Ramadan, these attractions are comparatively quiet during the day, compared to the rest of the year, when they are frequently busy and congested.
On the other hand, Muslim families go out after dark for Iftar and other events – to malls and commercial centres which leads to crowding. Traffic seems to be at its highest in the evenings so make sure to plan your travel during the evenings or better stay at home.
