Sharjah’s sky to lighten up with Fireworks on Friday night
Al Qasba, the premiere tourist, cultural and entertainment destination in the emirate of Sharjah, announced the successful conclusion of ‘Ramadaniat Al Qasba 2010, a series of religious and cultural activities inspired by the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan. Officials at Al Qasba have revealed that the conclusion of the one-month event will witness a fireworks celebration on Friday September 10th at 10:00 pm and a special parade for kids with their favorite cartoon characters.
The events also include an art workshop known as ‘Ebru’ which will be conducted by "Osman Fidan", Researcher, Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization and will take place on the second day of Eid Al Fitr starting at 7:00 pm. Ebru is the art of paper marbling and one of the wonderful art forms in Islamic arts, often used to complement Arabic calligraphy. Muslim artists used this art to decorate Holy Quran manuscripts in a very beautiful way. The art form was also used to frame calligraphic compositions, to create endpapers in finely-bound books or even to design exquisite individual artworks.
Commenting on the conclusion of ‘Ramadaniat Al Qasba 2009’, Hazem Sawaf, Director of Marketing and Sales at Al Qasba Development Authority said:
“With all the efforts exerted to organize another successful edition of Ramadaniat Al Qasba, we are very pleased with the turnout and the visitors’ feedbacks on the activities and promotions that were organized. The success was a result of hard work, blessed motivations and organized cooperation between Al Qasba and various governmental and private authorities and committees.”
On behalf of Al Qasba Development Authority, I would like to congratulate the rulers and people of UAE for the occasion of Eid and may God bless them all,” added Sawaf.
The annual Ramadaniat Al Qasba program—held this autumn for the sixth consecutive year—was marked by a series of Ramadan cultural events including the Eman Oasis tent. Hosting notable clerics from across the Islamic world, evening religious lectures saw hundreds of visitors opening their hearts and minds to some of the most important Islamic issues within contemporary society. Moreover, through the Scratch & Win campaign, which runs until September 19, visitors took home hundreds of fantastic prizes including AED 20,000 total worth of Al Qasba Gift Vouchers to be spent on dining and entertainment, Home Electronic Gifts, a bundle of Food & Beverage Freebies and many more!
‘Ramadaniat Al Qasba’ was one of the many events held this year under the collective Sharjah Ramadan Festival; a program which aims to support the time-honoured values and traditions associated with Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr.
