Farewell… Ramadhan

 

Here we are in the month of Shawwal, and like everyone else who had been fasting few weeks ago we’d say “Ramadhan passed so quickly”! 

In the blessed month, Beige and Teal has been in search for what makes the atmospheres special in Ramadhan… 

Aside from people focusing more on inner peace and self-reflection, 

we loved how neighborhoods suddenly lit up during Ramadhan… 

People hang their lanterns at their doors, 

Although they disappeared now but some neighbors still put up tents for social gatherings… 

And most importantly, people walk at dawn with “musahhir” to wake people for Suhoor and Fajr prayer.

During the last few days of Ramadhan, this activity called “weda’” (Arabic translation of farewell) 

where people walk with drums, reciting poetry, slowly walking through the neighborhood… 

With its bitter-sweet effect, sad but beautiful, people bid this holy month farewell… and peace… 

 

Below are some shots of this experience… 

We hope that you made most of Ramadhan and may you witness it with ever most joy next year and many years to come…
