London turned on Ramadan lights to welcome the holy month

In a significant move, the main thoroughfares of Frankfurt are now embracing Ramadan for the very first time. Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse, the city’s central street typically adorned with Christmas decorations, is now adorned with signage and embellishments conveying “Happy Ramadan,” alongside stars and crescent moons, extending a warm welcome to the imminent holy month.

Hilime Arslaner, leading the Frankfurt city council, remarked, “Ramadan serves as a reminder of what truly matters: sustenance, shelter, and harmony among family, friends, and neighbors.”

Approximately 15 percent of Frankfurt’s populace identifies as Muslim, expressing satisfaction at the acknowledgment of their culture through the city’s decorations.

In Germany, the Muslim community surpasses five million individuals, constituting roughly 6.6 percent of the nation’s total population. Ramadan commences on March 10th and concludes on April 9th, marking a month of fasting for Muslims, culminating in Eid al-Fitr festivities.
