The Flag Day marks the anniversary of Sheikh Khalifa becoming the country’s president in 2004. Every year on November 3, people in the Emirates celebrate this national occasion, in which they reaffirm their allegiance to the UAE flag, which is a symbol of the country’s unity and greatness and represents their aspirations for a better future.
Eid Mubarak from all of us here at the Bonnington!

Muslims in Dubai and around the world are preparing for Ramadan, which is scheduled to start around 6th June this year. We’re also getting ready – our iftar menus have been printed and we’re planning this year’s Ramadan decorations.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the month of fasting for Muslims. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam; the others are confession of faith, five daily prayers, Zakah (almsgiving) and Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).
The day of fasting begins with an early morning meal before dawn and ends at sunset. The evening activities include the traditional breaking of the fast usually with dates and water, the sunset prayer followed by dinner (IFTAR). Muslims then usually go to the mosque for congregational prayers in which at least one-thirtieth of the Qur’an is recited. The congregation would have listened to the recitation of the complete Qur’an by the end of the month.
Emarati hospitality and traditions are also very evident during this month as Iftars are hosted across Dubai and residents of different nationalities come together to share the spirit of Ramadan.
