Ramadan in Dubai: May 27th – June 25th 2017
Emirati 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. The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing organises numerous events during the month and the retail sector witnesses brisk business.
If you’re a non-Muslim, you may not know much about Islam and its traditions. A visit to the stunning Jumeirah Mosque, the only mosque in Dubai that welcomes non-Muslim guests six days a week, will change that (women are asked to wear a scarf when visiting).
One of the most beautiful landmarks in Dubai, the Jumeirah Mosque, which is large enough to hold up to 1,200 worshippers, was built entirely from white stone in the medieval Fatimid tradition, with towering twin minarets framing a large central dome. When it’s lit up at dusk, the intricate artistry and true beauty are highlighted.
Make the most of your visit by joining a tour hosted by the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and learn about the Emirati culture and religion in a relaxed, casual, and open atmosphere.
Ramadanization Art Exhibition 24 May – 27 June 2017
DUCTAC will host an art exhibition that showcases the creativity of artists who observe Ramadan, and their perspectives on the Holy Month. The exhibition, entitled ‘Ramadanization,’ will be a collection of multimedia pieces and installations expressing their views, opinions and social commentary of what Ramadan means to them and how it is perceived in today’s media-bombarded generation. The exhibition opens at 7pm on 24 May, but if you can’t make it the opening night you can catch it anytime during Ramadan month.
Location: Gallery of Light at Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre
Held in Dubai over 10 nights of Ramadan, the Ramadan Night Market will host a number of retailers from across the world, offering a diverse variety of products to a dynamic community from Dubai and the rest of the UAE. People from different parts of the world live and work here, bringing their own cultural heritage to this cosmopolitan city. Spending during the Ramadan period and before Eid is signiﬁcantly higher and customers are always looking for new experiences. No other event of this proﬁle is held during Ramadan. All this points to a huge demand and opportunity for an exhibition.
Location: Dubai World Trade Centre
