Ramadan etiquette for non-Muslims
Non-Muslims do not have to fast in Ramadan. However, they are prohibited from eating, drinking and smoking in public during the fasting hours. This includes chewing gum. Additionally, ensure that you do not:
- engage in any aggressive behaviour
- dance or play music in public although you may listen to music quietly with headphones
- wear inappropriate clothing in public
- swear as blasphemy is considered extra offensive during Ramadan
- refuse a gift, or an invitation to join someone at Iftar.
