This Ramadan, the Cultural Foundation will celebrate the Holy Month with special activities led by Emirati writers, artists and influencers!

The event includes:

Ramadan Cultural Majlis

A series of Iftar events led by cultural expert Ali Al Saloom will aim to increase UAE residents’ knowledge of Emirati traditions, clarifying cultural dos and don’ts to help them overcome any social challenges they might be facing in their time living in the UAE. The sessions will also demonstrate ways to embrace the values of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Inspirational Words (Anasheed)

Anasheed is a type of Islamic chanting expressing religious devotion. A series of performances by Emirati singer Abdullah Al Wasmy, Ali Bobar and Ammar Bobar. Islamic Anasheed concerts touch not just the heart, but the soul, digging deep into listeners’ relationship with Islam. Attendees will learn how Anasheed performances have been evolving through the years, speaking to the younger generations and lifting their spirits.

'Writing to God' with the Writing Society

To celebrate creative writing during the Holy Month of Ramadan, Emirati author and scriptwriter Amal Al Duwaila has curated a special programme of workshops under the title ‘Writing to God’. Amal will teach writers ways to enhance their creativity, build logical methods of storytelling, improve their technical skills and hone their personal writing style.

Ramadan Lanterns
