OFW Guide: Do’s and Don’ts During Ramadan

The Holy month of Ramadan this year officially started last July 10 and in observance of this, OFWs regardless of their religious orientation should make an effort to show their respect to their Muslim brothers and sisters by keeping the following in mind:


Dancing, singing or being under the influence of any alcoholic beverage is not allowed during the celebration.

Playing of loud music at home, on the beach and even inside your car should also be observed.

Wearing revealing clothes or any tight fitting clothes outside is not allowed.

Smoking, drinking and eating of chewing gum in public such as malls, cinemas or offices are not be allowed.

Do not utter blasphemous words in public.


If you have Muslim friends, greet them and say “Ramadan Kareem.”

Be aware of the change of the office hours of establishments and government agencies.

Dress conservatively. Avoid going to public places like shopping malls, parks in mini skirts, shorts or sleeveless outfits.

Be a helping-hand to the needy as Ramadan promotes a charitable nature.
