To welcome the Holy month of Ramadan and create a joyful ambiance for the Island’s residents and visitors, United Development Company (UDC), master developer of The Pearl-Qatar has festooned the Island with special lighting and structures that are strongly underpinned with an authentic essence of the Holy month.
As tradition goes at UDC, the Company has decorated roads, palm trees and lampposts and lightened up The Pearl-Qatar’s main entrance gate and the main driveways leading to Qanat Quartier, Medina Centrale and Piazza Arabia - the facade of Porto Arabia - in addition to all main roundabouts.
Also throughout Ramadan, visitors and residents of the Island will enjoy the variety of Iftar and Suhoor special menus served at restaurants across The Pearl-Qatar in a unique atmosphere that combines modern and luxurious living with the Holy month’s traditions.
Visitors can equally shop for Arabic incense, fine dates, oriental perfumes, groceries, gift baskets, and sweet hampers resonant with the Ramadan spirit, around Qanat Quartier, Porto Arabia, and Medina Centrale’s retail outlets.
The Pearl-Qatar’s shopping outlets will be open in the morning from 10:00 am till 02:00 pm and in the evening from 08:00 pm until midnight with the exception of restaurants that host Iftars.
Three mosques at The Pearl-Qatar have prepared to welcome the influx of worshippers during Ramadan, including the Grand Mosque at the Island’s entrance. The mosque which has been undergoing renovation works, will be well ready before the beginning of the Holy month, reflecting UDC’s keenness to offer residents and visitors of the Island the possibility to perform their religious duties in total comfort and convenience.
Taraweeh evening prayers will be led by Imams in the mosque located at the Island’s main entrance and the two mosques adjacent to Qatar District Cooling Plant "Qatar Cool” and the “Isola Dana” precinct. The three mosques include women prayer facilities on the first floor, with on-site parking available.
On the 14th day of Ramadan, The Pearl-Qatar is set to celebrate the Garangao tradition, with a host of special activities for children that highlight the rich cultural and religious heritage of Qatar and will further mark the advent of Eid with a festival filled with fun and entertainment.
