Katara Library of Arabic Novels launches ‘Ramadan Nights in Culture and Literature’

Doha: The Katara Library of Arabic Novels has launched its Ramadan Nights in Culture and Literature, hosting Arab communities starting today until tomorrow with Palestinian and Moroccan communities, which will take place at 9pm on the upper floor of the Thuraya Planetarium.

The library had also launched the Ramadan programs for the Egyptian and Sudanese communities last week. The two evenings were moderated by Khaled Diab Al Mohannadi, Director of the Katara Library of Arabic Novels, in collaboration with journalist Muhammad Al Shabrawi in the management of the Egyptian evening, and journalist Al Tayeb Bashir in the Sudanese evening.

The Egyptian evening shed light on the Ramadan atmosphere in Egypt, which is characterized by many festive rituals of the holy month, which are still present in all parts of the land of Kenana, such as the decoration of Ramadan lanterns and the magicians who roam the roads to wake the fasting people to eat Suhoor, as well as the tables of the Most Merciful that are set up where there is no difference between the city of Ogeria.

Journalist Mohamed Al Shabrawy touched on the literary and poetry councils that take place during Ramadan, in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, and major Egyptian cities.

He said this Ramadan witnessed a decline in the technical level, due to many factors, which he attributed to the fact that producers imitate each other, and aspire to quick financial gain, and this does not prevent the existence of good works characterized by new innovative ideas, and this is often due to the writer’s ability to be creative, such as the drama written by the writer Osama Anwar Okasha, Youssef Maati and Hamad Al Mansi Qandil.

Plastic artists participated in displaying their paintings during the evening of the Egyptian community, including: Esraa Waguih, Enas Jassem, and Basma Hassan Ali, they also participated in discussions about the Ramadan atmosphere in Egypt compared to Qatar.

The evening of the Sudanese community was marked by a heavy presence, especially from members of the Sudanese Women’s Association in the State of Qatar. Dr. Amal Al Sadiq Majzoub discussed nutrition in the month of Ramadan, which witnesses a great change in eating habits, and requires caution against excessive intake of sugars and fats, especially for those with chronic diseases. “Eat, drink, and do not waste.”

She also recommended eating fiber-rich foods at Suhoor, along with drinking plenty of water and fluids in general, such as soups and juices, to avoid heartburn and acidity during daytime fasting.
