About Ramadan 

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Hijri calendar. When the Hilal of Ramadan is proclaimed, the entire kingdom will rejoice, and Muslims will exchange greetings on its arrival. This is one of the greatest months for Muslims. The Holy Qur'an was revealed to Prophet Mohammad -Peace be upon him- on Ramadan's greatest night, Lailat Al-Qadr. During Ramadan, Muslims practise the fourth pillar of Islam by fasting from dawn until sundown.

Ramadan is a time when Muslims exercise greater religious discipline and worship, such as reading the Qur'an, giving charity, visiting family, and so on.

Open around the clock, Old Jeddah is a lively place, especially at night. Throughout AlBalad, there are customary celebrations and "Bastat" kiosks. Above them are ornamental Rawashin and vintage Mashrabiyas, where Ramadan fare as well as a variety of entertaining activities, both old and new, are available for purchase.


To familiarise guests with the local cuisine and customs, vendors dress in traditional Jeddah attire and sing Shabi songs, which are part of Saudi Arabian culture. Even though many of these vendors cook and serve food only during Ramadan, they nevertheless have a large following of devoted patrons. Shopping in this authentic setting and strolling through it continues to be a unique experience.
