Ramadan of the past two years was spent in social isolation in an attempt to observe health restrictions and curb virus spread. However, with the health situation looking better, Ramadan of this year reverted back what it once was, not only a month of spirituality but of social connections.

In this regard, Social Planning professor at Kuwait University Dr. Seham Al-Qabandi commented that the social aspect of Ramadan positively impacts people’s mental well-being, noting that studies showcase importance of family gatherings.
