Ramadan Detox And Purifying Rituals

Here’s what actually works.

It is going to be quite an exceptional Ramadan this year. The month that is known for fasting, reflection and connection will have a different feel altogether due to strict social distancing practices. Yet, the celebration of the Holy Month of Ramadan this April/May brings a much-needed opportunity for spiritual reflection and self-improvement. More than ever, this is an opportunity to practice sacrifice, generosity, and discipline while also expressing gratitude for what we have, for the ones we love and for the hope of what’s yet to come.  It is through challenging circumstances that growth emerges. Our positive outlook influences our ability to accomplish our intentions.

Here at the Gaggler, we invite you to reconnect with your heart and soul through these detoxifying and purifying home rituals to help you boost your body, spirit and mind connection this Ramadan. So let’s make the most out of the cleansing effects of Ramadan with these tips:


Adjust your sleeping habits and timings during the day so you won’t end up skipping any meals before your fast. It’s very tempting to sleep in but this practice can have consequences  on your body’s overall wellbeing as the fasting month progresses.

Choose your meals wisely, consume wholesome and nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats that will sustain you through the day and keep your energy levels up. Don’t forget to pay attention to the cooking methods used and always go for baked, grilled, steamed or boiled dishes.

Enjoy your meals calmly at a slow pace to ease the digestion process. Be mindful on portion control and keeping meals from becoming a feast. Overeating can lead to unnecessary weight gain and irregular levels of glucose in the body which can create health conditions like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.

Drink plenty of water and non-sugary drinks to stay well hydrated. Avoid caffeine to keep you from facing energy imbalances. A great way to increase your water intake is by drinking flavored water. There are so many options and recipes to add variety to your drinks while refueling your body with precious nutrients.

Keep up with your fitness routine to improve your overall health, helps your body to get rid of toxins, improves mental clarity and reenergizes you throughout the day.

Avoid working out on an empty stomach. Schedule your workouts at least two hours after meals to not interfere with the digestion process.

Avoid any strenuous activities or heavy weightlifting. Stick to low impact and low intensity cardio. Disciplines such as Yoga and Pilates keep your flexibility and muscle strength and are best performed during fasting hours. Aim to practice these gentler routines for no longer than 30 to 40 minutes a day.



Meditate to help calm down hyperactive minds and filter unnecessary and distracting thoughts that usually keep us from living our best physical and spiritual life, enhancing your ability to focus on the things that really matter.


Set a mantra or higher intention to enroll in a path of new beginnings and to detox your consciousness. Make sure to write this purpose down somewhere visible to constantly remind you of your goal and visualize yourself living that reality.

Ditch the electronics for a good 30 minutes a day, especially before bedtime to detach from any distractions. Let go on everything that doesn’t serve you.

Reset your thoughts and begin your day with positive affirmations. Keep a journal to write down any struggles or difficult feelings that may weigh on you will help flush out all negative emotions. Read books that can guide you on how to reset your thoughts towards this end.



A time for spiritual recollection, Ramadan reminds worshippers of the importance of nourishing your soul and fortifying your relationship with God, loved ones and community members. Ramadan is a time to become introspective and to find within the pillars of religion the willpower to fulfil its practice.

Practicing gratitude and appreciation are wonderful injections of joy and peace for the spirit. Pay close attention in strengthening bonds with family and loved ones by being present and conscious. If solo isolation is your current situation, join online prayer groups for collective support in order to bring the traditions back into your daily routine.

Find comfort in helping others. Generosity is a quality that is not only beneficial for whom receives it, but also incredibly rewarding for those who are willing to put others needs before their own.  A great cause that you can support this Ramadan is The “10 Million Meals” campaign. This is an initiative launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and the Government of Dubai to provide meals or food parcels to all individuals and families in need during Ramadan.

Around the World with Eid Al-Fitr

Celebrate the fast, differently

Eid al Fitr and Eid ul Fitr are different spellings of the same Arabic phrase which means “festival of breaking the fast”. “Eid” is the Arabic word for “festival” or “holiday”, and it is used to refer to both Eid ul Fitr and Eid al Adha, another important Islamic holiday that commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to (PBUH) Allah’s command.

This is a time when Muslims come together to offer prayers, exchange gifts, and share meals with their loved ones. It is also a time to reflect on the values of Islam, such as compassion, generosity, and forgiveness, and to strengthen ties with family, friends, and the community.

Eid’s Global Significance

Eid is one of the most significant and widely celebrated festivals in the world. It is an occasion that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, and is a time of joy, celebration, and giving thanks. The significance of Eid is not just limited to Muslims; it is also recognised and celebrated by people from different cultures and religions around the world.

The significance of Eid varies across cultures and countries. In some countries, such as Egypt, Eid is celebrated for three days, while in others, such as Turkey, it is celebrated for four days. In some countries, such as Indonesia, Eid is known as “Lebaran” and is celebrated with traditional foods, such as Ketupat and Rendang. In other countries, such as Pakistan, Eid is a time for new clothes, henna designs, and special desserts, such as sheer khurma.

One of the most important aspects of Eid is the act of giving. Muslims are encouraged to donate to charity and to give gifts to friends and family members, especially to children. This act of giving is a way of expressing gratitude for the blessings that one has received throughout the year and is an opportunity to share those blessings with others.

Another important aspect of Eid is the gathering of family and friends. Muslims are encouraged to visit their relatives and loved ones during Eid and to strengthen ties with them. In some countries, such as Saudi Arabia, it is customary to visit the graves of loved ones during Eid and to pray for their souls.

Eid is also a time to forgive and seek forgiveness. Muslims are encouraged to forgive those who have wronged them and to seek forgiveness from those whom they have wronged. This act of forgiveness is a way of purifying one’s soul and starting anew.

UAE Eid Al-Fitr Celebrations

Eid al-Fitr is one of the most significant celebrations in the UAE, marking the end of Ramadan and a month-long fast from sunrise to sunset for Muslims. The festival is celebrated with much joy and enthusiasm, with families and friends coming together to share food, exchange gifts, and greetings, and participate in a range of traditions.

The day typically starts with a special Eid prayer, which is held at mosques and prayer grounds across the country. After the prayer, families often visit each other’s homes or gather in public spaces to enjoy traditional foods such as dates, sweets, and other delicacies. Children are often given money or gifts by their elders, and many families dress up in their finest clothes for the occasion.

In the UAE, there are also many events and activities that take place throughout the Eid al-Fitr period. These include traditional markets, food festivals, and cultural performances, as well as fireworks displays and other outdoor activities. Many shopping malls and other venues also hold special events and promotions during this time.

Overall, Eid al-Fitr is a time of joy and celebration in the UAE, with people of all ages and backgrounds coming together to share in the festivities and express their gratitude for the blessings of the past month.

Eid Celebrations Around the World

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated in various ways around the world, often reflecting the local cultural traditions and customs. Here are some examples:

Indonesia: In Indonesia, Eid al-Fitr is known as Lebaran. The celebrations typically last for one week, during which people visit their relatives and friends, and seek forgiveness from one another. Special food is prepared, including ketupat (a type of rice cake), rendang (spicy meat dish), and opor ayam (chicken in coconut milk).

Egypt: In Egypt, Eid al-Fitr is known as Eid el-Fitr. The celebrations last for three days, during which people wear new clothes and visit family and friends. Special dishes are prepared, including fata (a bread and rice dish), kahk (a type of biscuit), and maamoul (a sweet pastry).

Turkey: In Turkey, Eid al-Fitr is known as Şeker Bayramı (Sugar Festival). The celebrations last for three days, during which people visit their relatives and friends, and give candy or small gifts to children. Special dishes are prepared, including baklava (a sweet pastry) and güllaç (a dessert made from thin layers of pastry soaked in milk).

Malaysia: In Malaysia, Eid al-Fitr is known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri (Celebration Day). The celebrations last for one month, during which people visit their relatives and friends, and seek forgiveness from one another. Special dishes are prepared, including lemang (glutinous rice cooked in bamboo), rendang (spicy meat dish), and ketupat (a type of rice cake).

United States: In the United States, Eid al-Fitr is celebrated by Muslim communities across the country. Many communities hold special prayer services, followed by communal meals and other festivities. In some cities, there are even public celebrations, such as parades and street fairs.

Iceland: In Iceland, Eid al-Fitr celebrations are unique, in part, because the Ramadan fast is performed in a way that is not to be seen anywhere else in the world. Iceland’s midnight sun phenomenon means that during Ramadan many Muslims fast for up to 22 hours a day! Muslims in Iceland do have the choice to break their fast based on the timings of sunrise and sunset from the nearest country, or of Saudi Arabia, however many have iftar when the sun breaks above the Icelandic horizon. So when Eid al-Fitr comes around, the celebrations are magical. The capital city of Reykjavik has a few mosques where the joyous merrymaking takes place and guests come laden with food inspired by Indonesian, Egyptian, and Eritrean cuisines to celebrate this holy day.

Morocco: In Morocco, Eid al-Fitr festivities give center stage to the country’s colourful culinary dishes. Where other countries focus on gift-giving and more commercialised displays of celebrations, Moroccans, after their morning prayers, hold low-key foodie affairs with family and friends. Lamb, couscous, and prunes feature prominently in meals throughout the day, followed by traditional cookies and pastries.

These are just a few examples of how Eid al-Fitr is celebrated around the world. Regardless of the specific customs and traditions, the holiday is a time for joy, forgiveness, and a renewed commitment to one’s faith and community.

Eid is a significant festival that is celebrated around the world by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. It is a time of joy, celebration, and gratitude and is an opportunity to reflect on the values of Islam, such as compassion, generosity, and forgiveness. It is a time to strengthen ties with family, friends, and the community and to express thanks for the blessings that one has received throughout the year.
