Ramadan Traditions Around the World

Ramadan is a month long holy period celebrated by over 1.2 billion Muslims around the world. The focus of the month is on the Qur’an and on fasting where Muslims do not drink food or water from sunrise to sunset. In addition to religious activities, during this time, Muslims also try to improve themselves, their families, communities, and environments. The end of Ramadan is celebrated with the Eid holiday where Muslims exchange  Eid gifts and spend time with family. One of the most popular gifts that Muslims give during Ramadan to their family and themselves is new Eid clothes. Some Muslims use Ramadan as an opportunity to reset their whole wardrobe with a variety of new Ramadan and Eid outfits! Muslim traditions are diverse and vary around the world. In some places traditions continue while others are making their own new traditions.

Ramadan in the USA
In the USA the Muslim community is culturally and ethnically diverse and you will find a variety of Ramadan and Eid festivities just as diverse as they are. During the month of Ramadan you will find that Muslims try a little harder to be kind, generous, and avoid bad habits or indulgences. Many Muslims volunteer or donate money, food, and clothing to charity organizations during Ramadan. Muslims in Michigan work in a charity organization packing boxes for a charity organization. After working hard all month, Muslims often celebrate at charity events and galas wearing festive Eid dresses.

Ramadan in France
In France, the abundance of local independent markets and fresh produce makes shopping for Ramadan Iftar dinners a daily delight. French Muslims have wide variety of choices when it comes to preparing delicious and nutritious Ramadan cuisine.

Ramadan in Indonesia
In Indonesia Muslims hit the beach! On the island of Java in Indonesia, Muslims prepare for a Padusan ritual by bathing in the Parangtritis beach in Rogyakarta Indonesia. They are definitely not wearing their new Ramadan clothes for this!

Ramadan in Pakistan
In Pakistan, special Ramadan breakfast foods are served in local bazaars including rose water drinks and deep fried pooris that give the energy to fast through the day.

Ramadan in Egypt
The Fanous of Ramadan is a Egyptian tradition where the street of Egypt are lit with beautiful lanterns. In Egyptian folklore, it is said a Caliph was welcomed to Egypt by the lighting of hundreds of lanterns. Many tourists who visit Egypt purchase lanterns as a unique and historically relevant Islamic gift for Ramadan. A artisan made lantern is a unique and inspiring Eid gift.

Singapore
A Ramadan special at a restaurant in Singapore. Muslims put on their comfortable Ramadan dresses and go out for the evening. Some wear ethnic dress while others opt for a more western style. These women might be talking about unique Eid gifts to buy for their friends and family.

Have you considered buying new clothes for Ramadan? Gift giving is a holiday tradition. Practical gifts like clothing are favored, unique gifts that fit into their busy lives but still reflect their artistic and cultural heritage. Artizara is a great resource for cool Ramadan and Eid gifts for today’s busy Muslims

3 Key 2017 Style Trends and How to Wear in Modest Fashion

2017 is the year that Islamic fashion and hijab wearing models really made waves in the mainstream fashion world.

From Kanye West casting hijab-wearing Somali-American model Halima Aden to make her runway debut at New York Fashion Week, to Cover Girl naming Muslim fashion guru and blogger Nura Afia their newest ambassador, to Indonesian fashion designer Anniesa Hasibuan proudly declaring “I’m here bringing the beautiful voice of the Muslim women, the peace and the universal values that fashion can offer”,  2017 has indeed started off to be a landmark year for Islamic fashion.

One thing all the fashionistas above demonstrated loud and clear: Modest fashion doesn’t mean boring. In fact Islamic clothing can be just the opposite. 2017 brings more choices than ever in modest Islamic fashion. Here are some key trends that we picked out that are super easy to adopt whether you’re hijab wearing Mulsimah or love modest dressing and modest clothing in general.

UTILITARIANISM

Boxy shapes, loose silhouettes and oversize cargo pockets these workwear inspired trends have been around for a while but 2017 saw designers from A.L.C. to Isabel Marant making it a point to give everyday pieces a military- and workwear-inspired vibe.
Utilitarian pieces, by definition simple, not too revealing, meant for everyday wear; are perfect as key pieces of a modest or Islamic clothing wardrobe. Here are a couple of our favorite utilitarian pieces from Artizara:

To make utilitarian chic dressing work, remember to balance oversized proportions with tailored pieces and feminine silhouettes and materials that you can tuck in or layer smoothly.
