Do not eat, drink or smoke in public during fasting hours. This applies to all public places, and public and private transportation. Public observance of the fast is compulsory regardless of religion.

  • Make sure you are wearing modest clothing

refrain from wearing revealing clothing out of respect to those observing Ramadan. This is particularly important when visiting malls, hotels and restaurants or iftar tents in the evening. As a general rule, clothing that is sheer, too short, low-cut or tight-fitting should be avoided, particularly shorts, mini-skirts and sleeveless tops.

  • For businesses, short working hours should be taken into consideration

Businesses should respect the shorter office hours and work around them, especially now that we are working from home. It's easier to have a longer day when staff are working from home, but the shorter working hours should still be respected.

Avoid unnecessary travel within an hour of sunset, as traffic will be heavy and accident rates peak. Avoid making dinner reservations around that time, as most restaurants will be busy preparing or serving iftar.
