Ramadan commenced on 29 June and will conclude on 29 July 2014.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar where Muslims worldwide observe as a month of fasting. This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. Fasting is an obligation for adult Muslims, except those who are ill, travelling, pregnant, diabetic or going through menstrual bleeding. The month lasts 29 – 30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in hadiths.While fasting from dawn until sunset, Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in sexual relations; in some interpretations they also refrain from swearing.

Take a look at what some of Qatar’s leading hotels and restaurants have to offer for this holy month!
