Culture 3 June 2019

It’s officially been announced that Eid Al Fitir will begin on Tuesday, June 4, 2019

We are sure many of our team members, volunteers and contributors are thankful that they will finally be able to have a coffee or tea before they start their day tomorrow.

So, after what felt like a tumultuous few hours waiting for the official announcement, we here at The Arab Edition would like to wish you all Eid Mubarak.

For all of you who observe Ramadan, we hope this month brought you solace and peace.

For those of you who engaged in the practice of fasting we hope you were granted the spiritual awareness you sought.

Ramadan is a time of inward reflection, a time to re-charge physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Ramadan is also when we put ourselves under the microscope and attempt to be more self-aware, self-disciplined and to practice patience.

As the month, which is observed by millions, comes to an end we hope to carry these lessons and the essence of Ramadan with us for the next year.

This means we are dedicated to bring you stories from all over the world of people no matter their faith, ethnicity or cultural background who consider themselves in some measure as Arabs.

Our stories will continue to explore all the different facets and layers of “Arabness” in many different spaces, places and times.

We love all our readers and appreciate every one of you who has visited our site, commented on our posts and contributed to our stories! Thank you.

We are always happy to hear from any of you, so please get in contact here and let us know your thoughts, feelings and ideas.

Below you’ll find a video of the final minutes of Ramadan in Dubai, UAE taken by one of our readers, Omar Aghbari.

Many happy returns from The Arab Edition team.
