During the Islamic holiday month of Ramadan, many Muslims observe traditional holiday fasting, abstaining from eating or drinking from dawn to dusk each day.
Because Ramadan follows the lunar calendar, it begins several days earlier each year (for more details, visit FAQs). When Ramadan occurs during the long days of summer - when the sun rises as early as 6am and sets as late as 9pm - fasting lasts all day, often ending just as many businesses are closing for the evening. This limits consumer options and causes businesses to miss out on hungry customers.
By extending business hours during the month of Ramadan, Dine After Dark members better-serve their customers and communities by demonstrating a commitment to inclusion.
