SHARJAH: Incredible promotions, glitzy hoardings and decorated pathways have been welcoming the faithful for the Holy Month of Ramadan across the UAE. It is a month of blessings, happiness and togetherness. And the United Arab Emirates (UAE) offers everything to make it a better experience. The month-long fasting in the UAE is of utmost pleasure, which leads to the celebration of Eid Al Fitr.

At the break of fast, all the seven emirates offer fountains of delicacies. Some signboards sporting ‘Ramadan Specials’ hang from shops. From the Abu Dhabi corniche to the Dubai Marina to Ras Al Khaimah, the ambience hits fever pitch.

Let us see what its residents have to say about the atmosphere. The Gulf Today brings you some moments of joy and happiness experienced by a number of residents.

A new bee in town, Amrin Banu, who shines brightly with enthusiasm when asked about the Holy Month and its significance, tells us how it brings Muslims from all walks of life together.

She can’t seem to stress enough on the unifying factor of the blessed month. And we totally understand.

She said that the Holy Month brings everyone working and striving towards one goal pleasing the Almighty.

“Ramadan is a blessed month, which unites all Muslims. We fast together, worship and at the end of the day, even feast together. It’s a beautiful feeling to be able to share the same love for the Almighty with our fellow brothers and sisters,” she said.

We went on to ask Hashim Sheriff, who enjoys the lights and the positive spirit of the UAE in the Holy Month. He enjoys seeing everyone gearing up to be his or her best to welcome Ramadan, around him.

“Ramadan is one such month where all Muslims are on their best behaviour before the Almighty to please him. Imagine if the holy period of Ramadan was throughout the year; imagine how pious we all would be. The world would be a better place to live in.”

We absolutely agree to the wise words Hashim shared with us. Mohammed Shahabuddin has been living in the UAE for many years.

As much as he loves his country, he believes, the UAE has won his heart, just like it has for many others. He goes on to tell us that the best time of the year is Ramadan and he loves every bit of it in the country.

He explains with deep emotions and utmost love that the way the UAE celebrates and makes the best use of the month is absolutely commendable.

“I love every bit of spending Ramadan in the UAE. The night prayers, the spread for iftar, the decoration done in every place we step our foot into, it’s just mind-boggling,” he said.

Ramadan being a month of mercy, helps us strive to be our best. The UAE, undoubtedly plays a very important role in bringing our best side out to please our Maker.
