Things to do during Ramadan in Qatar

Last Updated on by Admin


Ramadan is a significant time in Muslim countries, marked by the Islamic calendar’s lunar cycle. During this sacred month, Muslims around the world refrain from food, drink, and other physical needs from dawn until sunset.

As the crescent moon signals the start of Ramadan, families gather for Suhoor, the pre-dawn meal, and eagerly anticipate the evening meal, known as Iftar, to break their fast.

While Muslims observe these traditions, non-Muslims also embrace the spirit of Ramadan, joining in the festivities and experiencing the joy of togetherness and community.

In Qatar, this holy month brings a unique charm, offering a plethora of activities and experiences that capture the essence of Ramadan. Let’s explore the delights of Qatar during this special time.

Keshta – Arabian Picnic Tradition

During Ramadan, one of the delightful things to do in Qatar is to experience Keshta, our beloved tradition. Keshta is an Arabian Bedouin-style picnic, perfect for enjoying the serene beauty of the desert, wadis, and, mountains.

Picture yourself surrounded by the red dunes of Saudi Arabia or the tranquil waters of Jumeirah Beach in Dubai. Settle down on plush cushions and warm rugs, gathered around a low table adorned with vibrant fabrics. Keshta adds a touch of warmth and joy to your Ramadan experience, making it truly unforgettable.

What makes Keshta truly special during Ramadan is the opportunity to enjoy Iftar or Suhoor in these picturesque settings. It’s a time to slow down, reflect, and connect with the simplicity and beauty of the Arabian tradition.

You can personalize your Keshta setup to your liking, adding vibrant cushions, elegant dinnerware, and delicate floral arrangements. Whether it’s a simple gathering or a festive occasion like Eid al-Fitr, Keshta offers a unique and memorable experience that’s truly worth savoring during the holy month of Ramadan.

So this Ramadan gather your friends or family and experience the beauty of Keshta.

Garangao Festival: A Sweet Celebration for Children

Ever heard of the Garangao Festival? It’s a super fun tradition here in Qatar and the Gulf, especially for kids during Ramadan.

On the 14th evening of Ramadan (sometimes even earlier), children get to go from house to house collecting sweet treats from their neighbors. It’s like a special treasure hunt just for them!

A fun fact about this festival is that Garangao is like a halfway point in Ramadan for kids who’ve been fasting for two weeks.

It encourages them to keep going until the end of the month. So, after the sunset prayer, kids hit the streets with bags around their necks, ready to fill them up with sweets, nuts, and sometimes even rice and dates

But here’s the best part, Garangao isn’t just for locals. It’s become super popular with people from all over, including expatriates. It’s a scene straight out of a storybook, where children’s eyes sparkle with delight as they collect their cherished Garangao goodies. And amidst it all, families bond, neighbors come together, and the spirit of Ramadan fills every corner.
