Ramadan is a time of sharing and caring for all human beings. For Muslims living in non-Muslim countries, the holy month comes with its challenges.
But for some, Ramadan’s blessings have enveloped them in a different way, with an array of love and kind gestures from non-Muslims.
The story of a Dublin hotel which surprised its Muslim guest with full buffet suhoor has prompted thousands of Muslims to share their own stories about heartwarming gestures paid forth by non-Muslims during the holy month, StepFeed reported.
“My non-Muslim boss made me food for iftar today, it made my day low key… Alhamdulillah for all the considerate and empathetic ppl in the world,” Waheed from Afghanistan posted on Twitter.
Another story about a positive experience in Ireland during Ramadan was shared by a Twitter user named Umer Usman.
I’ve always had fantastic experiences for Ramadan in Ireland. Had a restaurant owner personally deliver sehri to my hotel room a few years ago. Incredible place, can’t speak highly enough of it. https://t.co/CWftMv63Qf

Thousands of Muslims retweeted sharing their stories about heartwarming gestures by non-Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan.
Something similar for me at four seasons Washington DC last Ramadan not a full buffet but a ridiculous tray despite the items not being on overnight menu— I nearly cried. The tray came with a Ramadan Mubarak card. Some folks just get it right.

During last three Ramzans I stayed for few days in Sheraton Grand Taipei Taiwan, InterContinental Bangkok and Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto. All of these hotels served me Sehri brakfast of my choice at midnight in my room without any extra charge.

A user named Babar Ahmad shared his story and said how his 14-year-old nephew’s teachers, who were non-Muslims, woke up at 3:00 am to prepare food for ten fasting boys during their school field trip.
Another Muslim from South Africa tweeted: “Last year during Ramadan, I stayed at the Garden Court South Beach Hotel in Durban, RSA. Without me saying anything, the manager came to my room to ask what time I’d like to have my breakfast brought to my room. As promised, it arrived an hour before prayer time. #Tsogosun”
After reading several retweets, a Pakistani sports anchor named Sawera Pasha said “I feel so good, so positive, so refreshed. So happy to read all these positive experiences that people had. Tolerance, consideration, commitment to job & humanity is still present. The world is not that bad you know!”
Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.
In Ramadan, adult Muslims, save the sick and those traveling, abstain from food, drink, smoking and sex between dawn and sunset.
Muslims dedicate their time during the holy month to be closer to Allah through prayers, self-restraint, and good deeds.
