As the month of Ramadan is coming to an end, Muslims are gearing up to pick the best clothes to get dressed up for one of their biggest festivities, Eid al-Fitr or the festival of fast breaking.
This exhibition gives a glimpse of local costumes of several Muslim countries, from Tunisia and Egypt all the way to Afghanistan and Iran. Aside from showcasing their costumes, the participating nations also get to introduce their Ramadan traditions and what they have for Iftar meal.
Organized jointly by Iran’s ECO office and the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, the event seeks to forge a stronger bond among Muslim nations sharing their cultures and traditions.
Muslims say Ramadan brings them together more than any other time since they all practice the same religious tasks throughout the month. And as the call to prayers resonated in the exhibition, all fasting Muslims left the expo for a shared Iftar meal.
Despite all differences in languages, costumes and even Ramadan meals, these people say they feel like they are one nation, since all come from Muslim countries. And organizers say this is what Ramadan offers: a taste of peace and friendship that transcends any differences.
