Who hijacked Ramadan?
These past few years, the only noticeable public display of Ramadan in Dubai is by the 'Ramadan special promos’ billboard signs on Sh. Zayed Road. Isn't that just sad?
Or are Ramadan decorations now considered to be بدعة من بدع الشيطان وبئس المصير
Why is it that I get to experience the spirit of Dewali and Christmas much much more than Ramadan's? Hats off to our Indian and Christian brothers and sisters who won’t compromise their pride in their cultures nor religion, and will celebrate it no matter where they are.
Whereas we dubai-dwellers are becoming lazier and more self indulged by the day. Sadly, the only official Ramadan celebration ceremonies these days are performed in a poorly ventilated overpriced makeshift tent, smoking shisha and gossiping.
I am off to Taraweeh now... then I will go look for Ramadan fanoos and hang it on our home balcony. Any tips on where to get it from will be much appreciated..
