Ramadan in Qatar: Suhoors and Iftars

For an expat of almost 12 years, I must say I look forward to Ramadan in Qatar. It is a month of short office hours, establishments are open til late night, most hotels setup lavish Ramadan tents, a widespread of restaurant offers, activities and more.

 

But what is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the most blessed month of the year in Islamic culture, it is when Muslims abstain from worldly pleasure. It is also a time of spiritual reflection and worship to become closer to Allah. A month of dawn to sunset fasting for Muslims, they cannot eat food nor drink liquids. Just before the fast, Muslims have “suhoor” a pre-dawn meal to get them through the day. After sunset, they gathering to break their fast together with a meal called “Iftar”.

 

Having said that, here are some Iftars and Suhoor (click each photo) I’ve experienced these past weeks that might help you decide where you want to break or begin your fast. At the end of this post, you’ll find a list of special dining deals during the month of Ramadan.
