The month of Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down,
a guidance for the people, and clear verses of guidance and criterion.
[Quran: Chapter 2:183]

Ramadan Singapore Photos

Ramadan in Singapore 2010

Every Ramadan in Singapore, a food bazaar is held at Arab Street selling tasty food for the breaking of the fast (puasa). Muslim and non-Muslim Singaporeans alike go to this food bazaar. Some delicacies sold at the food bazaar are only available during Ramadan, for instance, the Kathirah drink. So if you happen to be in Singapore during this beautiful month, go ahead and drop by Arab Street and visit the bazaar to soak in the atmosphere.

Here are some sights of the Ramadan food bazaar in Singapore, contributed by a Singaporean reader.

Western origin of the Baguette and the tomato sauce used in the dish.
The ingredients include minced meat (chicken or mutton), onion, egg,
tomato-chilli sauce and a baguette-type loaf.

Special Ramadan Series

Dear Reader, Assalaamu’alaikum.

Ramadan Mubarak. We wish you a blessed and productive Ramadan! Make no mistake about it - keeping the fast and increasing our acts of worship during this blessed month is not an easy task. The physical demands of balancing work or school with fasting all day, feeling fatigued and less effective than you normally are, waking up for Suhoor, praying Teraweeh and Tahajjud prayers, dealing with sleep deficits.

But the last thing we would want is to let Ramadan pass us by without doing all that we aim and desire to. Do not allow yourself to feel guilty or regretful when Ramadan passes.

The Ramadan Series will send you emails with practical tips on how to gain and maintain the physical and spiritual energy necessary to embark on increased religious oligations so that you will reap the benefits from this blessed month. This includes special Ramadan duas to say during the month. Do sign-up today!
