Ramadan Kareem & some progress pictures
Ramadan is the ninth lunar month of the Islamic calendar and occurs about 11 days earlier every Gregorian year.
The start and end of the month is determined by the sighting of the new moon. The word ‘Ramadan’ comes from the Arabic root word ‘Ramida’ meaning ‘scorched heat’ or ‘parched thirst’.
The month holds special importance since the Quran, the Holy Book of the Muslims, was first revealed to the Prophet during Ramadan. Furthermore, fasting is recognised by Muslims around the world as one of the 5 pillars of Islam; the others being faith, prayer, charity and the pilgrimage.
In this part of the world, the phrase used to greet during Ramadan, is ‘Ramadan Kareem’ meaning ‘Ramadan is generous’.
We are progressing through Ramadan with overall working hours reduced as per the UAE Labour Law, but, being a hotel, we never really sleep, of course.
Having now opened a good number of apartments, our focus is shifting towards preparing the first of our hotel rooms for letting and we are also working on our restaurants and bars.
Here’s a couple more progress pictures of various food & beverage areas…
