The moon sighting has indicated the onset of Ramadan 2018 which means another month of fasting and reflection is set to unfold not only in Qatar but to the rest of the world. With the holy month in place, working and operating hours will also completely change and while some of us are already well-acquainted with these changes, a chunk of Qatar's more than 2.6 million population will find the new timings bewildering. 

If you're one of them, you might find the following information useful to help you get going.

Note: Unless otherwise sourced, the timings are identical to our Ramadan Opening Hours article published last year. We'll update this version from time to time once we get the heads up from the establishments included in the list. If you're unsure of the timings, we urge you to contact them directly.
