It’s the holy fasting month of Ramadan in Gaza City , the month all Muslims await to purify their souls and get close to Allah in all acts of worshiping like fasting, praying, making charity and reading Qur’an. Sure this month has its own blessings, rituals and appearances and in the city of Gaza Ramadan is just like all Muslim and Arab countries. Many will write about how miserable the situation is in Gaza and how Gazans will suffer in Ramadan because of the political situation and its consequences such as; the blockade, the unaccomplished reconstruction projects, the unsolved situation between Hamas in Gaza and Fateh in Ramallah, the useless negotiations with the Israeli side, the continuous electricity problem and many other political BLA BLA BLA .
Despite all this BLA BLA BLA, the preparations for Ramadan are ongoing. Gaza people have their suffers and problems, but nothing ever will make them away from dressing their city with whatever it require in order to live Ramadan’s joy and spirituality as it must be. These preparations cost them a lot of expenses and efforts starting from the tables of Iftar, social commitments and visits for the relatives, Iftar invitations for family and close friends and ending by Ramadan’s decorations.
Leaving you with the latest photos for Ramadan preparations from Gaza.
