That's what Ramadan is supposed to be about too — God.
After sunset, the tents house guests who are there for entertainment that includes hookah, tea and music.
In a way, even if you're a devout Muslim who frowns upon all the cultural practices and special foods, it's difficult to dissociate yourself from them all.

I attended Jumaa, Muslims' weekly Friday sermon, at my mosque. I hadn't attended Jumaa during Ramadan before. The sermon was about Islam's third pillar: Zakat, or alms in English. I also attended a community iftar at the mosque with my mom and aunt, staying to pray taraweh afterward.
Saturday, however, I took a different route and attended a concert and had suhoor, which is eating before dawn, at a restaurant.
