Why I love Ramadan

51 Views · Published on Fri, 17 May 2019 · Life in Egypt

Ramadan is a very special time for Muslims.

It is not just fasting, it's also a social event. In all citys in Egypt you can find the Maedat Rahman, which is a open buffet for everyone. A open buffet where you get food for free. The idea behind that is, to offer poor people the same possebilitys to celebrate Ramadan.

Sheikh Mohammed is offering every year a big Maedat Rahman at the 10th day of Ramadan. He choosed that date, because in 1973 Egypt took Sinai from Israel back at that day. It was the beginning of peace-talks. Nowerdays you can see here many Israelis as well - this would not be happend, if they would still have a silent war. Egypt is by the way the only arabic country which opens the borders for Israel. Might be, that here are many problems in this country - but I like to be focused at the good things. And to live in peace wich each other is the best think.

What I realy like here in Dahab is to see, that during Iftar (the fast breaking, the first meal at the day) are sitting at the same table Muslims, Christians, Atheists and maybe as well jewish people and eat together. Thats a sign from peace which I wish to see everywhere in the world.
