Ramadan, which concluded on June 24th, is considered the holiest month of the year for Muslims, as it is the month that the Koran was revealed. The revelatory events are remembered and celebrated by fasting, detaching from material pleasures, prayer, and giving to charity.
The JW Marriott Hotel Dubai organized a Ramadan preview event for artists from Mawaheb, an art studio for adults with special needs. The artists who visited the hotel first learned all about spices, then cooked and enjoyed Iftar dishes with the chefs. After lunch, they painted a beautiful collaborative “Ramadan Along the Spice Routes” piece that is now on display in the hotel.
