Seheriwala in Delhi

Known as seheriwala or zohridaar, specific individuals roam the streets of Delhi throughout Ramadan to wake up Muslims for suhoor. They begin their duties as early as 2.30am, traversing neighborhoods with canes or sticks, knocking on doors and walls while chanting Allah’s and the Prophet’s names. This is a centuries-old tradition that continues to be practiced in certain parts of Old Delhi and Muslim-majority areas.

Rais and Nadeem are a childless pair of Sehriwalas who have carried out this job for the last two decades at Churiwalan in Old Delhi. They work hard to keep this ancient custom alive in an era of mobile-alarms and globalization. As a religious holiday unconstrained by national boundaries, Ramadan’s customs reflect the worldwide Muslim community. Despite differences in culture and language, these customs unite Muslims around the world to celebrate their shared values of generosity, collaboration, and friendliness. They are also a time to gather with family and friends for iftar and other celebratory events.
Coffee and Baklava in Turkey

Baklava is a quintessential Turkish delicacy with a rich history and cultural significance. The sumptuous dessert combines layers of flaky filo pastry with luscious nuts and is drenched in delightful sweet syrup. The intricate craftsmanship of this iconic confection makes it an irresistible treat.

Whether you’re looking for a place to enjoy a quick cup of coffee or an indulgent baklava, there are many options in Istanbul. The best Turkish coffee has a bold flavor that can stand up to the sweetness of the baklava. It can also complement the nutty flavors and texture of the dessert.

One of the most popular places to buy baklava in Istanbul is Koskeroglu. The bakery is known for its baklava varieties, including the milk-based “milk nuriye” and the pistachio-filled palace wrap. The bakery also sells other traditional Turkish desserts, such as sobiyeti and dolama.
Town Crier in Morocco

The month of Ramadan is one of the most important for Muslims. It is a month of prayer, charity and family gathering. Fasting allows Muslim to refocus on their blessings and to remember those who are less fortunate than them.

In Morocco, a Nafar (town crier) can be heard walking the streets blowing a trumpet or calling people by their names to wake up for Shoor, their pre-dawn meal. Then, at sunset, a loud sound of zowaka (air raid siren) signals that it is time to break the fast with Iftaar.

After iftaar, Moroccan families gather to eat and drink and share gifts with each other. This is also a night to honor their elders with visits and gifts. Then, young boys take a short ride on a beautiful horse, often accompanied by one of their parents. It’s a wonderful experience for kids, and they love it! This is also a great time to shop in Morocco’s famous markets, called souks. Prices are much lower and haggling is expected and welcomed!
Town Crier in Indonesia

The town crier is a traditional communication media worker who is appointed by the village head to disseminate important information and developments to the people. He often moves around the community and strikes his instruments to attract attention to his proclamations. He also uses special words and phrases to emphasize his messages, such as the time for meetings or days of communal labor.

The modern town crier is an important part of local folklore in many countries, with competitions held for the best ones. They wear a traditional costume, including a red and gold robe, white breeches and tricorne hat. They usually carry a wooden gong or a drum.

In Australia, the Longreach town crier, Patrick Casey, says that every town should have one. He claims to be the oldest member of a guild established in 1978 — the year the Bee Gees reached number one with their classic disco hit, Stayin’ Alive. The guild has a rigorous selection process for potential criers, with candidates subjected to a series of tests, including volume, clarity and diction.مفرزنات رمضان الرياض
