A Easy Recipe to Cook a Ramadhan Sweet Called Qataayif

Qataayif (Filled Pancakes) is the special sweet of Ramadan. It consists of small pancakes, first stuffed with nuts, cheese, or fruit, then baked or fried, and finally dipped in honey-like syrup and eaten hot.

The pancakes, which can be bought ready-made by the dozen or the kilo, come in two sizes; the smaller variety are not cooked any further but are eaten with ishta (cream) folded into them; the larger ones, the size of a small saucer, are stuffed and cooked.

Ingredients used (Serves four people):

12 pancakes (about 10 cm in diameter), 4 tablespoons of broken walnuts, 4 tablespoons of shredded coconut, 2 tablespoons of fine sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, vegetable oil for frying, syrup of sugar, water, and lemon juice.

Ramadan, Fasting and the Cycle of Life

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and even though the name of the month predates Islam, Ramadan took on special significance as it became the appointed time of year in which to commemorate the revelation of the Qur'an. Like the Jewish Yom Kippur and the Christian Lent, Ramadan is a time of atonement, a time of becoming closer to God and of coming together as an extended family of believers. Unlike Yom Kippur and Lent, Ramadan is not a seasonal observance.

The Islamic calendar is lunar, and therefore the months migrate throughout the seasons, shifting backwards roughly two weeks per year. What this means in practical terms is that over the course of a normal lifetime, Muslims will observe Ramadan three or four times in the middle of winter, a similar number of times in mid-summer, and of course at every other time of year.

Fasting was not unknown to the pre-Islamic Arabs as a means of religious observance, and it is certainly a familiar aspect of Jewish and Christian practice. During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food, water, sexual relations and other excesses from sunrise to sunset. They maintain their normal cycle of praying five times per day, and they add special prayers each evening during which a section of the Qur'an is recited, so that over the course of the month the entire scripture is read. In direct reference to fasting during Ramadan, the Qur'an states: "God wants ease for you, not hardship" (2:185). Consequently, young children, the sick, the elderly, travelers and menstruating women are not required to fast.
