As the holy month of Ramadan begins, it brings with it a wave of nostalgia, stirring memories of childhood and youth. The essence of Ramadan nights lingers in our minds, including those of artists who share their unique experiences of this sacred time. Let’s delve into the Ramadan reminiscences of some celebrated figures.

Elham Shaheen recalls: “Ramadan is a time for family. I cherish breaking my fast at home, surrounded by my siblings, and extending invitations to friends and relatives. My mother’s presence, may she rest in peace, was a cornerstone of our Ramadan traditions. She instilled in us the importance of worship, nightly prayers, and daily recitations. Her spirit turned our home into a beacon of light, her voice blending with the verses of the Qur’an as she prepared our meals. Though her absence weighs heavily on my heart, I honor her memory by continuing her legacy of faith and generosity.”

Majed Al-Masry reflects: “Ramadan holds a profound significance for me. It’s a time of giving, patience, love, and devotion. The anticipation of its arrival prompts me to reassess my personal and familial priorities. I consciously reduce my workload to focus on spiritual growth and to cherish moments with family and relatives, whom my busy schedule often keeps me away from.”

Nermin Al-Fiqi shares: “Ramadan exudes a distinct charm that envelops my family in warmth, camaraderie, and joy. Our family home becomes a hub of togetherness, and not a day goes by without a visit. I reserve this month for the family, setting aside work to fully immerse myself in the spirit of Ramadan.”

Yousra offers her perspective: “Ramadan is a celebration of generosity, virtue, and understanding. It’s a time for soul-cleansing and fostering tolerance. I dedicate this month to reconnecting with family, friends, and my husband, director Khaled Selim. While I take pride in preparing Iftar, the latter half of Ramadan is reserved for reflection and reading the Qur’an.”

Yehia El-Fakharany, a veteran actor, shares: “Ramadan’s unique rituals and spirituality make it a special time, which I mostly spend at home with my family. I ensure to complete filming for any series I’m involved in before this holy month. Currently, I’m diligently working to finish my role in ‘Atabat El Bahja’ (Thresholds of Joy) so I can keep up with the Ramadan shows, particularly my own, and gather feedback from friends. I also maintain a strong commitment to religious practices, especially the dawn prayer.”

Mohamed Mounir, the iconic singer, spending Ramadan at home, expresses: “Ramadan evokes a special warmth and tenderness for me, unlike any other month. It’s a time when my family and I unite, with relatives visiting from Aswan, ensuring someone is always present, bringing with them cherished customs and traditions that harken back to my childhood.”
