Some thoughts during Ramadan

During this special religious month of Ramadan, we all should remember first and foremost it’s a time for fasting and focusing on prayers. It is a time for reflection and doing of good deeds to all, especially to Charitable causes and the less fortunate.  Also for connecting and reconnecting with family and friends. Share, socialise, smile and enjoy Suhoor and Iftar together.

In the spirit of Ramadan we encourage you to connect with new and old business associates and colleagues around the world to strengthen and widen your professional links and grow your network with like-minded professionals. Organise your work and home affairs, ready for the exciting year ahead. Clean, clear and cleanse your mind, your body and your work. Think and talk positively to all you meet and come across during this special time.

As a guide to best practices and behaviours during this spiritual time one should be kind, caring, patient and courteous to all. Good behaviour towards our fellow human beings and co-workers should be a given, all our lives but is especially important now to give that little bit extra and go that extra mile. After-all being kind and charitable to others is always a fulfilling and spiritually uplifting experience.

The more I read and start to understand about Ramadan the more I appreciate that who ever our god, what ever our beliefs we should all try to be more understanding, tolerant and respectful of our neighbours choices. As a mark of respect to our Muslim friends abstaining from drinking, smoking and eating during day light hours in public shows a mark of respect and one I am very happy to observe. As the saying goes ‘it’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice’. To me Ramadan is a reminder of such ethics and values to live by, for one and all.

In an effort to mirror Ramadan’s pillars, lets connect on Linkedin and share our combined professional efforts to partner and grow our businesses together. Onwards and upwards, to better understanding of each other and professional alliance’s that are important and have deep meaning and healthy respect.

Ramadan Kareem – Happy Ramadan to all

Hi Emma,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Basically, Ramadan realizes us the importance of food that God has given us. We all should realize the hunger of those who does not have the food throughout the year. We all should make all possible efforts to provide food and shelter to those who does not have these necessities.

Ramadan Kareem Ms. Doo,
Indeed its a month of reflection, remembrance, and most importantly a time to renew spiritual ties with creator.
I personally liked the underlined message Ramadan offers.
Have yourself a great inner peace and strong spiritual ties.

Nicely put. Having an open mind towards the positive aspects of Islam and also paying attention to what might be improper is important for any reasonable approach to differences.

Dear Emma,
Beautifully summed up the goodness of Ramzan. It is indeed a special month for muslims around the world for those especially, who put in the extra effort to get closer to the Creator.
May Allah guide us all to the righteous path.

P.s. there is someone named AbdulRasheed from Sri Lanka who commented above about being jobless. Please connect with me over email.

Hi Emma

Very well said, in these troubling times we live in we all need to be tolerant. As a South African Muslim living in the UAE, it's heartwarming to see we can all live together and respect each other.

Ramadaan Mubarak to everyone.

Hi Emma,

I’m currently experiencing my 6th consecutive Ramadan as a non-Muslim living in Saudi Arabia and I totally agree with the comments you make. Respect and consideration for others should be a prerequisite for everybody all year round but especially so for the period of Ramadan.

It is very easy for a non-Muslim to overlook the fact that during this period of fasting people are very tired and become more so as the days pass. One cannot expect the same levels of performance when managing teams and consideration and respect has to be given.

As a mark of respect I do refrain from eating during the daytime but have to be honest going without water in temperatures often above 40 degrees is very difficult for me so I do have a drink in private when I need to. This however has further increased my respect of the dedication needed to fast during this period, especially so for the people who work outdoors in the extreme heat of Saudi Arabia.

Finally I would like to wish a Happy Ramadan and a Happy ‘Eid al-Fitr to all.
