Ramadan Recipes

Not a big cooker when it comes to Ramadan. I prefer simpler meals and don't like to be in the kitchen all day.  But sometimes, I like to make special Ramadan recipes to make this time seem even more special and memorable.  Below are some Ramadan recipes and sites that feature Ramadan recipes.  Some of the things I have made over the years, and some are those I've wanted to try. Recipes also include those for treats to go along with themed studies, such as moon phases.


  • Qamar el deen - this is on of our favorite drinks. We had it over a sister's house in Egypt and she showed us how she made it. It is made from dried apricot sheets (which roughly look like big thick fruit rollups) and water. You use one package of apricot sheets,cut the sheets into small pieces and soak in water (about 1 liter) overnight or for about 4-5 hours and then add sugar to taste. You can usually find the apricot sheets in halal/international stores.

Keeping it in Perspective......

وَكُلُوا۟ وَٱشْرَبُوا۟ وَلَا تُسْرِفُوٓا۟ 

“Eat and drink, but do not waste” [Sūrah al-‘Arāf, 7:31]. 

 Although Ramaḍān is the month of generosity and kindness, give what benefits. As for extravagance, then it is unbeneficial. A similar statement was directed to Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān (حفظه الله): “Because some people provide food and drink extravagantly [in Ramaḍān], the tables are filled with different assortments of food.” He (حفظه الله) stated: “This is contrary to the Sunnah. The month of Ramaḍān is not the month of eating, drinking, and repletion; it is the month of fasting.” (Source)
