Muslims enjoy a traditional meal and experience the best of Arabian hospitality during the Holy Month of Ramadan
Ramadan Majlis located in Dubai World Trade Centre is hosting a luscious Suhour presenting a wide variety of a la carte set meals and several choices of shisha, delicately prepared to produce an impressive after-hours dining experience with family and friends.
Billions of Muslims observe, fast and celebrate the Holy of Month of Ramadan, a spiritual discipline in contemplation on his relationship with God, devoting a particular focus to prayer, purification, and charitable acts. It is when Muslims around the world go through a period of daily fasting, the biggest act of religious observance of its kind.
By means of fasting, a person demonstrates the highest degree of obedience from sunrise to sunset in one month per year by consciously submitting to abstaining from drinking, eating and having intimate relations. This self-control is an outstanding process for spiritual and moral development.
For the duration of Ramadan, 2 main meals are prepared. Taken just before sunrise, before the day of fasting starts is suhoor and iftar is a meal served after sundown. A healthy and hearty suhoor meal is recommended in order to remain in good nourishment for the rest of the day during the fast. At the day’s end, after sunset, the Maghrib prayer begins, and the day’s fast is broken with iftar. A lot of Muslims consume dates to break their fast before starting the iftar meal. They may continue consuming drinks and food all through the evening until the following day’s suhoor.
One of the best Suhour can be experienced at The Majlis, Dubai World Trade Centre as it’s enjoyed with the premium traditional Arabian dish and hospitality in a luxurious Arabic setting. Corporate guests will be impressed with a magnificent spread of traditional Arabic cuisine before catching up with colleagues as they prepare for the day ahead.
Karim Benkirane, Managing Director of Virgin Mobile in the UAE invited Mohamed Dekkak, Chairman and Founder of Adgeco Group for Suhoor at The Majlis. Mr. Benkirane oversees the launch of the Middle East’s first fully digitized mobile service and is responsible for providing consumers with new telecommunications experience. Virgin Mobile in the UAE is a business unit that’s fully owned by Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company PJSC (EITC).
The Majlis also offer Iftar buffet daily during Ramadan with dishes concocted by recognized chefs. Guests can discover several of the best local delicacies, delicious treats, and the cup of premium qahwa, all the things one needs for a splendid family feast, which can be enjoyed in a lavish Arabic setting.
Private majlis or gazebo that sits 24 people are also available for a cozier ambiance. They are ready to open for Iftar from 6 in the evening to 8:30 pm and for Suhoor at 9 pm to 3 am. Take rest in the cozy setting and experience the spirit of Ramadan while devoting quality time to your family and friends.
