Salaam,

Do you guys observe a sudden surge in Muslims visiting restaurants or movie theaters before Ramadan?

I know the market places may be busy with people stocking up on grocery and doing other preparations for Ramadan but I was just curious about how it is in places outside India with more Muslim population.

I wonder if it is all about 'eating your desired meal' a last time before starting the fasts or 'may be watching a movie for once' before restricting ourselves during the holy month etc.


Seems a little funny (and strange)to me.
What do you guys say? Grin

I don't do anything, which strikes people as strange, my mum called me a few days ago asking if I wanted any special food or if she should bring me some as I'll be spending the first ten days at home.

I was like I'll just cook and have fruit....to which my mum replied and milk you must drink milk!!!!


So I need to buy ice-cream to put in the rose milk to keep mother happy and to make it more drinkable for me.

And I need dates.

Other than that I dont do anything different.

People do go a bit mad with the food shopping, its almost like the sight of stuffed fridges and pantries reassures them even tho they cant eat the food during day time!

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Stocking up on food is ok I guess. Grin

But going out to have 'some fun' before ramadan is what making me wonder. Tongue

I dont go mad with going out either.

I just ensure any plans to go out are either made before ramamdan or they can wait after.

Definitely don't up the cinema trips either, no average I think we go to see films every two or three months.

so no.

Just act as normal.

Yes, actually the day before Ramadan people tend to go to a restaurant, as a treat before doing their fasting. But not to a crazy extent, just a single trip.  Smiley

I'm going out for lunch tomorrow.

Not because Ramadan is approaching but because my friend is only available on the weekend and I can't go without him coz I'm broke and he always foots the bill since he started working Wink
