Ramadan Kareem from Entrepreneur Reporters
Ramadan is an important month in the Islamic calendar, a month in which Muslims fast during the day and attend extra, recommended prayers during the evening.
While business hours and public etiquette change during the month, here are four tips to help you.
The fast begins at the morning prayer time (about 4 a.m.) and goes on till the evening prayers (about 7 p.m.). Not only is that a long time to go without eating and drinking, as the day goes on, it also becomes more challenging to keep operating at 100%.
If you need to arrange meetings or business plans with people who are fasting, try and schedule them for the start of the day though not too early.
Try and get your meetings all done by early to mid-afternoon, that way you can be sure you get the best focus and attention from them, without it affecting their Ramadan duties.
Wish Them Personally
Take part in Ramadan-themed activities and events, enjoy the variety of dining experiences, and build and strengthen your relationships with your business partners or Staffs.
During the days of Eid -at the end of the month- make sure to wish all your close contacts personally. Not just a bulk email newsletter, but a short, personal message or phone call. It is one the biggest celebration in the Islamic calendar, make use of this special time.
