Google celebrates Ramadhan with special landing page


Google has set up a special landing page for Ramadhan, which Muslims are required to observe by fasting during daylight hours. The page offers “more ways to get together during Ramadan,” which is often a time for post-nightfall family get-togethers and communal meals, as well as hangouts with celebrity chefs from Southeast Asia.

“Getting together for meals and laughs, telling stories, and simply spending time with loved ones—this is what holidays mean to many of us,” Hadi Raad, a Google marketing chief for “Emerging Arabia,” posted on Google’s blog.

In addition, since people who gather together might want something to do, Google offers Muslim-heavy regions such as the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Malaysia and Indonesia, “hours of video content for your whole family.”

With arms outstretched in welcome
To your Heavenly Visitor?

Or hide some magazines
And put the Qur’an where it had been? Read the rest of this entry »
