Few more days to go and the Ramadan period is here, it would fall approximately May 26, 2017, till June 24, 2017.
As an expat, we are all expected to respect and consider those people who are participating in this occasion. Not just to avoid fines if breaking the Don’t rules but, to show them that we are respecting the country’s tradition and its people.
So let’s do it and avoid below.
Below 08 basic things we should not do:
1.During fasting hours, ensure not to eat nor drink in public area. Most Muslims are fasting during Ramadan (exception for elderly people, pregnant women and those who has health problems)
2.Mostly, few people tend to forget this, even chewing gum & having candies are not allowed to do publicly during Ramadan
3.Be considerate and Don’t play loud music as you may offend those who are fasting, better to wear headphones if you want to listen to music, but make sure it is not audible to people around you.
4.Not just to lower the sounds of our sound speaker but especially our mouth, do not talk loudly especially in public area, it is expected to all to be calm and kind to one another.
5.Wear modesty and avoid wearing shorts dress, revealing and fit clothes.
6.This rule applied throughout the year but most especially during Ramadan, avoid public display of affections (applicable to married couple as well)
7. For those smokers, use this chance to finally quit as it is prohibited to smoke publicly during the day in entire Ramadan period
8. This period is a month of peace and serenity avoid as much as you can to get in debates, arguments or fights.
Always remember, respect one another belief, this will help maintaining the peace in our society and following the rules will not harm us:)
