It’s official: The Holy Month of Ramadan begins tomorrow, and whether you’re Muslim, expat, new to the city or long-time resident, we’ve gathered all the information you need for a happy, healthy month and compiled it into one handy guide – out today with this week’s issue of Time Out Dubai.
For newcomers and expats, there’s a quick list of Ramadan Dos and Don’ts as well as advice on how to get involved if you’re not fasting.
If you are fasting this year, there’s information on must-download Ramadan apps, essential tips for fasting healthily and exercising safely, and guidance for introducing your children to the Holy Month.
Plus, we’ve compiled a list of more than 150 iftars and suhoors across the city and broken them down by area and budget, so that wherever you are you can pick the perfect post-sunset meal.
Flip to the back pages for our pick of the best, or turn to our step-by-step guide to throwing your own iftar gathering. It’s full of recipes for traditional favourites like tabbouleh, harira soup and kunafeh as well as instructions for how to make a perfect pot of Arabic coffee.
Time Out Dubai is on sale every Wednesday for Dhs9, available in all good supermarkets.
