Aqua would like to inform our customers that lunch will be closed during the Ramadan. However, you can enjoy the Sheesha after eating and drinking, as we open the sheesha terrace garden and the Sheesha lounge.
We remind customers that during Ramadan there are two main meals served: the suhoor (before dawn) and iftar (after sunset). The suhoor ends when the sun rises and the fajr, or Morning Prayer begins. When the sun sets, the maghrib prayer starts and the day’s fast is broken with the iftar meal. Many Muslims break their fast by eating dates before beginning the iftar meal. Muslims can continue eating and drinking throughout the night until the next day’s suhoor. At the end of this month, Muslims celebrate the Festival of the Breaking of the fast, called Eild-al-Fitr.
Suhoor and iftar meals contain vegetables, halal meats, breads, cheese, sweets and fresh fruit. However, there are some fruits that can be served at a Ramadan suhoor or iftar and these are pistachios, dates and dried fruits. Fresh seasonal fruits are also a good idea and fresh seasonal vegetables even better. Among the deserts, we name chabbakia, made of fried dough flavoured with orange blossom water and coated with sesame seeds and honey. You can also try Paomo, a bread and mutton soup, Ramazan Kebabi, made with lamb, onions, yogurt and pita bread and also Serbet, the world’s first soft drink, developed in the Ottoman Empire. Sherbets are made from ruit juices, extracts of flowers, or herbs, and combined with water and sugar. Mentally ill, the elderly and sick are exempt from the fasting. This also applies for pregnant women, and women nursing newborns.
Even though Lebanese food is mostly prepared with meat, we have decided to keep a very traditional menu with a huge choice of vegetarian dishes.

Ramadan stands for the holy period of one month, always the nine month in the Islamic calendar, when Muslims are praying, fasting and charity giving. The first verses of the Koran were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during the last third of Ramadan, making it an especially holy period.
Our restaurants Coventry based would like to explain more about the period of Ramadan. Muslims from the United Kingdom fast during the daylight hours in this month of Ramadan, as part of the five pillars of Islam. This is a period of time of self-examination and increased religious devotion. The one meal known as suhoor is served just before sunrise and the evening meal after sunset.
Many Muslims are also donating to charity, organizing related events and all sorts of voluntary activities. Campaigns have been promoted in the UK in order to raise public awareness of safe ways to donate to charity, staying away from fake charities during the Ramadan. The campaigns have helped a lot of people to choose honest charity organizations when donating money and equipment.
Some Muslims are reading special prayers throughout this period, with reciting being held in the mosques every night of the month.
The prime minister of United Kingdom greeted Muslims both locally and globally for the month of Ramadan, in order to raise awareness of the Ramadan’s importance among Muslims both in the UK and throughout the world.
The month of Ramadan starts with a new moon sighting, making the start of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. Fighting is not allowed during this period. This is the time when the Islamic holy book is said to have been revealed to the Prophet Mohammed, ending when the first crescent of the new moon is sighted again.
