Wishing you all EID MUBARAK!

Eid al-Fitr, or Feast of Breaking the Fast, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The religious Eid is a single day during which Muslims are not permitted to fast. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated ceremoniously with great enthusiasm in Saudi Arabia. Like other festivals observed by the Muslim community, this festival symbolizes faith. The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr not only has religious essence but also carries a social connotation. Saudis decorate their homes and prepare extravagant meals for family and friends and in the major cities in Saudi Arabia, every night there are huge fireworks shows.

Eid festivities in Saudi Arabia may vary culturally depending on the region, but one common thread in all celebrations is of generosity and hospitality and serves as a good occassion to bring people together in harmony and gratitude. First, it is common Saudi tradition for families to gather at the patriarchal home after the Eid prayers. Before the special Eid meal is served, young children will line up in front of adult family members who dispense riyals (Saudi currency) to the children. Family members will also typically reserve a time to pass out gift bags to the children. These bags are often beautifully decorated and contain candies and toys.

It is also traditional in some areas for Saudi men to go and buy large quantities of rice and other staples and leave them anonymously at the doors of those who are less fortunate. Also, in some areas in the middle of Saudi Arabia, it’s a common tradition that during Eid morning and after the Eid prayer, people will put large rugs on one of streets of their neighborhood and each household will prepare a large meal where these meals will be shared by all neighbors.

Dubai is an emirate in the United Arab Emirates located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE and the second-largest land territory after the capital, Abu Dhabi. English is the standard language within the business community, and the city has a active scene with very few social barriers, making it easy for expatriates to fit in.

Dubai has emerged as a multicultural metropolis that has grown steadily to become a global city and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region. Dubai has recently begun attracting world attention through its many innovative large construction projects and sporting events. The city has also become symbolic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, in particular the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and other large-scale development projects including man-made islands, hotels and some of the largest shopping malls in the region and the world.

In addition to the many extracurricular and leisurely things to do in this emirate, Dubai also offers several occupational benefits for those who work here.

Dubai is a land of opportunity – it is one of the most comfortable places in the Gulf region since the regime decided to move away from oil and establish economic diversification in the emirate. Dubai’s economy has grown rapidly in the past 30 years and will continue to grow in the upcoming decades. This means that there are many opportunities to find well-paying employment opportunities in Dubai for anyone looking to enjoy a tax-free lifestyle.

Month of Ramadan fast facts:

Ramadan is the month the Qur’an was revealed

Ramadan follows the lunar cycle and is the 9th month in the Islamic calendar

Most Muslims observe Ramadan by fasting from sunrise to sunset with no food or water.

Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam

In accordance to the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad, most Muslims break their fast with a date.

Fasting is not just about withholding from food and water. It is much more. It is a time of heightened spirituality and a time of self-reflection. Many Muslims use Ramadan to reconnect with Islam by reading the Qur’an in 1/30th segments each day until it is completed. Charity, another pillar of Islam, is also greatly tied into the spirit of Ramadan. The physical hunger felt from withholding food serves its purpose by facilitating an environment for empathy.

Here at SA International, we have great empathy for all coworkers who are fasting. We show our respect by not eating or drinking in front of those fasting.
