#Ramadan #QTip: Reasons women should (or could) break their fast

In Ramadan, people are supposed to fast, we all know that, but it's also important that you take care of yourself and don't put yourself in harms way. So here's a list of reasons when you can (or must) break your fast.

1- Sick (If you need to take medicine and stay hydrated)

2- Pregnant (To keep up your energy)

3- Menstruation (You're not allowed to fast)

4- Breastfeeding (You have the option to)

But don't forget you'll need to make it up after Ramadan :)

#QTips: Arabic names, Tribes, and how they work

#QTips: Arabic names, Tribes, and how they work

What's in a name? That which we call a Hamad by any other name would smell as sweet. I think that's the quote... We thought you'd like to know a bit about Arabic names. Typically your full name would be 5 long. Your name, your fathers name, your grand fathers name, your great grand fathers name and then the family or tribe name. Typically you'd want to remember someone three names long. So your name, father's name, family / tribe name.

You probably noticed that older women typically wear a Batoola. It's this gold mask that protects the face. But did you ever wonder why they wear it and why it's shiny gold?

These days it's not as common as before but it's definitely something unique about our culture.

Why do we carry swords? Are you serious? They're awesome! It makes you feel like you've gone back in time and ready to play Ali Baba. But seriously Hamad explains a bit about the history, sword dancing, and how safe they are.

To demonstrate how safe they are, TheQatariGuy slices Mr. Q's arm!!

Don't have a sword? You can still dance, but with your arm.
