Ramadan Preparations in Dubai

JLT-time-2016-May

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.

If you’d like to find out more about Ramadan in Dubai, you can do so here.

Our Cavendish Restaurant will host a daily iftar buffet, which features many Arabic delicacies, traditional sweets, and Iftar beverages. You’ll also be able to enjoy hot and cold mezze, and meat and vegetarian grills. A live Oud player will accompany your iftar with traditional music. You can reserve your table by emailing us or simply call +971 4 3560533 for more information & bookings.

Ramadan Kareem!

Ramadan 2013 Mubarak to all our readers, guests, associates, visitors, neighbours, and friends!

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.

During Ramadan, the opening times of some of our restaurants and bars will change:

Healey’s Bar & Terrace will remain closed during the day, but open after sunset for soft drinks, snacks, and shisha.

The Pool Bar will remain closed throughout the Holy Month.

The Authors’ Lounge will be open daily from sunset to midnight.

McGettigan’s will be open daily from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m., but no live entertainment will take place and our popular iPaddy pub quiz night will also take a Ramadan break. Alcoholic beverages will only be served after sunset.

The Cavendish Restaurant will be open daily without breaks from 6.30 a.m. to 11 p.m. for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. We offer a fabulous Iftar buffet every evening during Ramadan, too!
