Jumeirah Mosque, Dubai
On June 7 we celebrated a Cultural Iftar hosted by Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding jointly with Australian, Austrian, Canadian, French, German, Italian, South African and Swiss Business Council.
Members from the following companies enjoyed an evening of social & business network: Amadeus, Cemex, Cepsa, Natura Bissé, Arteche, Dr. Vending, IE Instituto de Empresa, Igloo, Schlueter-Graf and UCAM Español Institute.
Held in the Jumeirah Mosque Majlis in the heart of Jumeirah, the evening began with the Athan (the call to prayer) followed by the breaking of the fast with our Emirati hosts. We enjoyed Arabic coffee and dates and then took a moment to watch our hosts pray, before a delicious array of Emirati dishes are served for Iftar. During the event, we celebrated a Q&A session about Ramadan, the culture or the traditions of the UAE. After Iftar, we visited the Jumeirah Mosque, before returning to Majlis for dessert.
We also discovered the art of calligraphy and all guests were provided the opportunity to have their names written.
