The Significance of Ramadan (and How Tayybeh is Helping you Celebrate!)

The Significance of Ramadan (and How Tayybeh is Helping you Celebrate!)
Ramadan is the Arabic name for the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Among Muslim communities, Ramadan is a time to strengthen our spiritual health, demonstrate self-discipline and practice generosity, kindness and patience.

Here are some things that are most significant to Muslims during the month of Ramadan.

Giving to Charity

Charity is the third pillar of Islam, and its significance grows during the month of Ramadan. Being charitable and providing for the needy are central features of the Muslim character, and ones which we try to hone in everyday life.

It’s even more important for Muslims to be mindful of giving, rather than taking during Ramadan, which is a time to demonstrate kinship and communal closeness.

Fasting during Daylight Hours

One of the most significant factors of Ramadan is of course fasting during the daylight hours, which Muslims believe will lead to greater taqwa, or consciousness of God. Suhoor, or sehri, are the meals eaten before dawn, while evening meals after sunset are called iftar or fitoor.

Tayybeh’s selection of Ramadan Specials is designed to break your fast in the most delicious way, with the help of authentic, home-cooked Syrian treats. Historically, Muslims open each fast with a date, so these delicious dried fruits are included in both of our Ramadan Menu Packages.

Alternatively, choose from our selection of sweet and savoury dishes - including Kibbeh Blaban, Beef Makloubeh, Knafeh and frozen Atayif, which are available with a walnut or cream filling.

If you’re not fasting but want to experience an authentic taste of the Middle East, they’re also a perfect choice for a meal with family or friends.
