@MaryamSaleh @StarveYourEgo There's a "look" for sahur?🤨 who the heck has time to do make up when you just waking up from sleep to eat and pray?!🙄 😕

@MaryamSaleh Wait you mean you don’t look like this waking up at 3:30am to eat frantically?

Ternyata di beberapa negara di Timur Tengah, menjalani sahur dengan berpesta itu sudah budaya, sehingga tampil cantik menjadi salah satu hal yang jadi pertimbangan.

For anyone confused; this is an actual thing in the Middle East. There are 'Suhoor buffets' from 9pm - 3am. Women dress up. But not as much as the iftar parties. Below is a product of the intersection between #religion & #consumerism. It risks lessening the spiritual value. twitter.com/caveheraa/stat…

Right folks if you're here & like my words pls give me a follow. You won't be disappointed. Today is one of those days I'm kicking myself for not doing an earlier thread idea I had on my reflections & learnings as a Western Muslim out here in the Middle East. #cultureShock

To provide further insight, last night I was at a #Ramadan tent for #iftar (with my MAC make up on) which goes on to serve these types of #Suhoor buffets. Ppl like to dress nicely & it's an attractive environment. But there's always a risk the spiritual element is diminished. pic.twitter.com/XtjFOsH9c2

I find CNN's @cnni reporting on this ridiculous & so American-centric. It may help if they talk to some ACTUAL Muslim women in the Middle East about this issue. I'm not defending MAC, but they're marketing the #SuhoorLook to a specific target audience. mobile.twitter.com/cnni/status/10…

@nashpatianswer @radbrowndads @seesomething This ad is by MAC Middle East. I understand the initial bewilderment by US Muslims, but investigate before accusing @MACcosmetics. Muslims are not a monolith. US Muslims should try to be more aware of those in the Gulf, Egypt, etc., where suhoor parties ARE a thing.
fats @fuegofats
@salma_inuwa @MaryamSaleh @StarveYourEgo It’s targeted for people who live in Muslim countries that actually go out for suhoor

@Naz_Faulkner @caveheraa Trust me ladies I've been recently learning this all myself too. I personally would do suhoor at the allocated time, usually in the home environment with a half-asleep look. These are marathon buffets, with a social element, where ppl join in & leave at any time between 9pm-3am
