The centre will be giving away three brand new Nissan Muranos to shoppers who spend at least Dh200 in any retail outlet, many of which are offering discounts of up to 70 per cent. The centre has also set up a replica of a traditional Arabic house, which is expected to be a major attraction during the holy month, furnished with a selection of antique furniture, where shoppers can sample delectable home-made traditional sweets, dates and bread over a cup of aromatic coffee.

“It is going to be a busy month at Sahara Centre. We are expecting retail activity to pick up considerably. In addition to world-class shopping and entertainment services, we are staging cultural activities such as calligraphy and painting exhibitions, as well as pottery and ceramic exhibits and workshops because we want our shoppers to have a truly pleasurable shopping experience during Ramadan,” said Gavin Cox, Sahara Centre Managing Director.

The pottery and ceramics workshops will be conducted by Iraqi artist, Wissam Al Haddad, a teacher of ceramics at the Sharjah Arts Institute who made a name for himself staging various exhibitions in Egypt, Iran, Iraq, the UAE and Italy.

Another fascinating exhibition on calligraphy and painting will showcase more than 30 pieces of rich creative images on Islamic arts that depict Ramadan customs and traditions using various styles and colours. The calligraphy paintings use a variety of colours in depicting the beauty of nature, as well as the Islamic tradition taking inspiration from the Holy Quran and Islamic literature.
