In the month of Ramadan, every day when the East has just begun to shine during the sunset, apart from the sick, travelers, infants, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, mothers, women who are passing through, and combat soldiers, adult Muslims must strictly observe the fast. Do not eat or drink, no smoking, no alcohol, no room and so on. It was not until the sun was sunk that people took a meal, followed by entertainment, or visiting friends and relatives.


During the month of Ramadan, Arab countries generally adjust the time of commute. Most companies in the UAE work from 8 am to 2 pm, and Saudi Arabia is required to start work at 10 a.m. The work efficiency of government agencies is low, and the activities of businessmen have also been reduced accordingly.
Business activities in Arab countries usually take place in the evening. Merchants usually start business at 6 or 7 o'clock in the evening until late at night until 2 or 3 o'clock. Some restaurants and restaurants did not close until 4am. Food sales during Ramadan are particularly large. Food, clothing and household appliances have become the most demanding and best-selling products. In particular, around the week before Eid al-Fitr, sales of various festive goods on the market have increased significantly, which is the peak season for sales.

People who visit Arab and Islamic countries for visits and business activities in Ramadan must pay attention to: During the period from the sunrise to the sunset—that is, when Muslims perform their fasts, they cannot smoke or drink water on the street or in public places. Eat something. Otherwise, Muslims will be treated as disrespectful of their religious practices and even punished or detained in Saudi and Gulf countries.
During Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, during the month of Ramadan, general restaurants are not allowed to operate during the day. In the restaurant of a star-rated hotel in Dubai, people can eat and smoke but they are not allowed to drink alcohol.
