Must-Visit Places in Ramadan with Custom Attire for Men in Dubai

Ramadan, the holy month in the Islamic calendar, is a time for spiritual reflection, community, and cultural immersion. Dubai, a vibrant metropolis known for its dazzling architecture and luxurious experiences, transforms into a truly special place during this sacred period. Whether you’re a resident or visiting for the first time, here’s a guide to captivating experiences and how Parmar Tailors, with their exquisite tailor-made suits in Dubai and shirts made to measure, can enhance your Ramadan wardrobe

Experiencing the Essence of Ramadan

Mesmerizing Mosques: Dubai boasts stunning mosques that become even more captivating during Ramadan. The architectural marvel, Jumeirah Mosque, with its traditional wind towers, offers a serene atmosphere for prayer and reflection. The magnificent Sheikh Zayed Road Mosque, adorned with intricate mosaics, is another must-visit. Dress modestly for these visits. Men, a crisp custom-made kandura will ensure both comfort and respect for the holy site.

Quran recitals: Throughout Ramadan, mosques hold special evening gatherings where skilled reciters chant the Quran, the holy book of Islam. These recitals, known as Taraweeh prayers, offer a profound and moving experience. While not obligatory for non-Muslims, attending these gatherings demonstrates respect for local customs. Parmar Tailors, with its expertise in shirts made to measure, can help you create a sophisticated yet modest outfit suitable for such occasions.

Iftar Feasts: Iftar, the evening meal breaking the daily fast, is a cornerstone of Ramadan. Dubai offers a plethora of options, from lavish buffets at five-star hotels to traditional fare at local restaurants. Experience the essence of community at iftar gatherings with friends and family. When attending such events, consider a tailored made suit in Dubai from Parmar Tailors. Opt for classic colors and breathable fabrics like linen or cotton for a sophisticated yet comfortable look.

Suhoor Delights: Suhoor, the pre-dawn meal before the fast begins, is a unique experience in Dubai. Many restaurants offer special suhoor menus, often featuring traditional dishes like Harees and Luqaimat. Explore the vibrant streets of Dubai during these early hours and savor the quiet energy of the city preparing for the day ahead. Parmar Tailors’ collection of shirts made to measure provides a stylish and practical option for suhoor outings. Choose lightweight fabrics and subtle patterns to exude a touch of elegance.

Ramadan Night Markets: Immerse yourself in the festive spirit by visiting the vibrant Ramadan night markets. From Deira Night Souk famous for the reason why Dubai earned the name “City of Gold”, to the Old Dubai area Al Satwa Night Market, these bustling bazaars offer an array of local handicrafts, clothing, and delicacies.  Parmar Tailors recommends comfortable attire for navigating the crowds. A well-fitting pair of custom trousers paired with a breathable kurta/kaftan will ensure a hassle-free and stylish experience.

Cultural Events: Throughout Ramadan, Dubai hosts numerous cultural events that celebrate the spirit of the holy month. From calligraphy workshops to traditional music performances, these events offer a deeper understanding of Islamic traditions. Dress modestly for these events, reflecting respect for the cultural significance. Parmar Tailors’ collection of tailored kurtas/kaftans provides a perfect blend of cultural sensitivity and personal style.

Nighttime Entertainment: While many restaurants and cafes maintain limited hours during the day, Dubai’s nightlife thrives after sunset. Enjoy captivating performances and cultural shows at venues like Al Hadheerah, offering a glimpse into Emirati heritage. Parmar Tailors can craft a tailor-made suit in Dubai that exudes sophistication for such evening outings.

Dressing with Respect During Ramadan

As a visitor in Dubai during Ramadan, dressing modestly is a sign of respect for the local customs and traditions. Here are some guidelines for men:

Opt for Long Pants: Skip shorts and opt for long pants or kanduras or kaftan/kurtas throughout the day. Parmar Tailors offers a wide selection of fabrics and styles to create custom trousers that are both comfortable and stylish.

Choose Loose-Fitting Shirts: Opt for loose-fitting shirts with sleeves that cover the shoulders. Parmar Tailors’ expertise in shirts made to measure ensures a perfect fit that maintains a respectful silhouette.

Headwear: While not mandatory for non-Muslims, a kandura with bisht over it, is always a respectful choice. Parmar Tailors offers a variety of hats. A traditional white cotton cap (kufi) or shemagh or keffiyeh over a tailor-made suit and jacket from Parmar going ala Prince Hussein of Jordan, is also a good way to blend in, but it’s not mandatory. For more informal events this summer season, v-shape Panamanian hats in different colors. 

Footwear: Opt for custom-made closed-toe shoes like loafers or oxfords by Dalla Sabbia.
