The Emirati city of Sharjah has been a popular holiday hotspot among travellers. The city has been in lockdown like most of the other Emirates of the UAE. This proactive measure taken is to curb the spread of COVID-19 and keep its residents safe.
As the holy month of Ramadan begins, the United Arab Emirates would ease lockdown restrictions. The Iftar and Suhoor gatherings would be different this year and restricted to only family and close friends. Most residents would find the time ideal to pray and seek blessings of health and happiness of everyone from the safety of their homes.
The lockdown can be quite an energy-drainer. If you are feeling low, then here are some fun-and-engaging things that you could try from the comfort of your homes.
