Fatima Al Sari, DWA Media Coordinator, told Khaleej Time that the programmes include Taraweeh prayers and the Holy Quran memorisation and recitation sessions. Scholars from Arab countries including Qatar, Sudia Arabia, Yemen, Iraq and Egypt will deliver lectures every night throughout the month.

She added that the association will also celebrate the Lailat Al Qadr,. (the night of power).

Al Sari said gift packets would be distributed among the poor and needy to make it a special event for them and more importantly to help the poor feel happy during Ramadan.

"Ramadan, a month of blessings, forgiveness and mercy, is characterised by sense of generosity and gratitude," she commented.

She said that although charity and good deeds are always important in Islam, they have special significance during Ramadan and Eid. During this holy month, Muslims are obligated to share their blessings by feeding the poor and making contributions to mosques. "A very important aspect of Eid and Ramadan is the charity, which all the Muslims are expected to extend to the needy," Al Sari added.

She said that the DWA is keen on organising such events which provide women an opportunity to learn about the importance of worship, reading of the Holy Quran, giving charity, purifying one's behaviour and doing good deeds.
