The holy month of Ramadan is much awaited by Muslims each year. Paradoxically, it is when Muslims refrain from eating and drinking, from sunrise to sunset, that household consumption spikes.
By: Mhammed Grine
Moroccans spend more and work less during the month of Ramadan.
These two phenomena – an increase in consumption and a decrease in productivity – appear to be contradictory, yet… more
By: Soufi Ould Cheibany
Ramadan is the month of fasting and worship on one hand, and on the other, it is a month that imposes a change in living conditions and in the economy.

In this year’s Ramadan in Algeria, nobody is monitoring the prices, and the protesters are not granted their rights. 34383 This year’s Ramadan is for the rich.
Peace upon you. May Allah accept your fasting and voluntary night prayers. I wish you a blessed Ramadan, and many happy returns of the month. May Allah grant you forgiveness, Allah willing. Ramadan impacts everyone, and this is from the favor of my Lord. Thank you.
The month of Ramadan, is the month of goodness and blessing may it return with health and happiness God willing.

Abdul Qadir from Algeria. The month of Ramadan is for fasting and worshiping and not for consumption. Everyone can see that a few days before Ramadan starts, local media in each country become convulsed and talk about the purchasing power of the citizen and the high price and scarcity of consumer goods in order to implant in the psyche of the Muslim that there are no goods for the month. Hence the merchants benefit, and this approach is two pronged: First move Muslims away from the core of fasting and second push citizens to buy and thus the merchants make more profit. One should note who is in control of the economy and the media in the whole world. So Muslims have to pay attention and make Ramadan a month of worship and solidarity. We should also remember the poor and save with regard to consumption instead of being excessive, which is the logical consequence of a month where we should refrain from consumption from dawn to dusk. And Allah knows best
Algeria is one of the examples. Algerians consume more than their monthly income in their daily lives. As for this month, consumption doubles and we see here an excessive increase in the cost of living in this month of mercy. Traders take advantage of the opportunity to raise prices hence we wonder where is the government’s control and whether people are aware of what is happening around them. With greetings, Siham
What do we mean by extremist groups? Are they the Islamic ones? When we define the problem we know the solution
Happy Ramadan and may you be well.
Everyone waits for Ramadan
Happy and blessed Ramadan for all Moroccans
Ramadan is the month of mercy, but with regard to the economy, not all Arab countries suffer from this economic crisis, and thank you brother Muhammad Ali for the comment
Joyous Ramadan. The month of Ramadan witnesses more competitiveness between sellers and traders with regard to prices. In contrast, families compete also as far as acquisitions are concerned whether they need them or not. Consumption is chaotic, it begs the question if the month of Ramadan is a month of worship or consumption?
The month of Ramadan is the month of forgiveness and mercy, God willing, it will bring us repentance and forgiveness.
Ramadan affects household budgets.
The problem is that the habits that accompanied the religious dimension of Ramadan are what made the economic dimension the center of the debate with regard to this holy month

Ramadan in the Maghreb is an opportunity for the markets to recover and this is due mainly to the voracious consumer culture, which appeals a lot to opportunists. They take advantage of if in terms of prices as well as in quality. And the solution lies in the rationalisation of consumption and in the dissemination of the culture of surveillance and vigilance and of reporting abuse.
We feel completely abandoned.
The impact of Ramadan; many young Arabs think that Ramadan is sleep and laziness while it’s the opposite
Peace be upon you may Allah accept your and our deeds. In Algeria, for example, the state announced via the Minister of Commerce and this is during the month of Ramadan, that the number of price comptrollers, which was nearly three thousand last year, will rise this year to six thousand in order to monitor the prices. This in spite of the false announcements to control it. There is neither control nor observers and it is the poor who pay the bill. The officials, rulers and observers are themselves engaged in commerce,,,, who is watching whom,,,??????
God, accept our fast
Congratulations for Ramadan
In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious. Peace be upon you. Happy Ramadan, and I wish you many returns of the month. Today’s Arab and Islamic countries live in an era of globalisation, in a global space controlled, organized and exploited by major powers. This means that we have no value in this space, and that the mechanisms directing our economies are not in our hands. Therefore, Ramadan does not affect us; in fact, we are the ones distorting the image of this holy month. Our laziness and neglect give a bad image of Ramadan which is supposed to be a month of work and activity, not of neglect and sleep. Consequently, Maghreb economies are witnessing a recession and a significant decline in their quantitative and qualitative performances. Allah knows better. Your brother Imam Eid, Algeria.
PEACE BE UPON YOU MY SISTERS. I THINK THAT RAMADAN IS A MONTH OF WORSHIP, FORGIVENESS, MERCY AND PROTECTION FROM HELL. MAY ALLAH PROTECT ALL MUSLIMS FROM HELL. RAMADAN IS NOT A MONTH OF FOOD, DRINKS, SLEEP, LAZINESS AND AVARICE. DEAR MUSLIM BROTHERS AND SISTERS, MAY ALLAH PROTECT AND BLESS YOU. PLEASE STAND UNITED. ISLAM NEEDS YOU VERY MUCH. WE ARE ENTRUSTED WITH THIS RELIGION, SO LET’S ALL WITNESS THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH, AND THAT MUHAMMAD IS HIS MESSENGER, PRAYERS AND PEACE BE UPON HIM. OFFER A LOT OF PRAYERS ON THE PROPHET. WE ARE TRULY PROUD OF ISLAM. REPENT TO ALLAH THE ALMIGHTY. ASK FOR HIS FORGIVENESS AND HE WILL FORGIVE YOU. REMEMBER ALLAH SO THAT HE REMEMBERS YOU. PEACE BE UPON YOU AND ALLAH’S MERCY AND BLESSINGS.
Ramadan and Islamic values.
Contentment with very little.
From Aida. Ramadan is a month of obedience and worship, not a month of rushing after desires, to the extent of being unable to pass by markets because of crowds, thieves and abusive words.
May Allah count me among the people who are fasting and offering voluntary night prayers in Ramadan. O Lord of the worlds, alert me from the sleep of the negligent, and forgive my sins in Ramadan. O Allah, forgive me, You Who forgive criminals.
Indeed, the convulsion of the [final] Hour is a terrible thing.
RAMADAN IS A SACRED MONTH FOR MUSLIMS. We spend a little more but that doesn’t cause a crisis. Happy Ramadan to all Muslims. Praise be to Allah.
Ramadan is the month in which the Qur’an was revealed, a month of mercy, a month where the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hellfire are closed, and a month where a specific night is worth 83 years of worship.
Wow, I still do not know whether we’re dreaming of a prosperous future. May Allah have mercy on us. Some people take advantage of the weak to progress, may Allah take revenge against them.
Profits peak in Ramadan, and transactions remain the same regardless of the soaring prices. Haj Sheikh, Mauritania, Nouakchott.
Ramadan is a blessed month where people get rid of all grudges.
Ramadan is a month of forgiveness and worship, where Allah forgives sins. It’s a month of all that is good. Why do people change in this blessed month?
Ramadan is a month of fast and worship, and people tempt themselves about life. Allah does not burden a person beyond what they can bear.
For religious people, Ramadan means fasting and voluntary night prayers. For businessmen, Ramadan is a month of profit, not loss. For angry people, Ramadan is a great opportunity. For the rich, Ramadan is a month of spending. And for the poor, Allah gives provision without account.
That’s true, here in Mauritania, Ramadan is a month of all that is good. People might have no job or earn a modest salary, but still prepare a huge meal to break the fast, and invite many friends and family members over for Iftar, and they are praised for that. This continues during the entire month. There is nothing wrong or unfortunate about that. Ramadan is a month of love and worship, a month of wealth and generosity. Ramadan is a month in which the Qur’an was revealed.
Why do people shop more in Ramadan compared to other months, although we eat less in Ramadan, and we throw away more than half the stuff we buy? We should not spend excessively in this blessed month. May Allah accept your fasting, and have a delicious meal.
Hello. How are you? I like this. Thanks.
Allah is the Greatest.
Every year this holy month brings joy and a special atmosphere. On the occasion of Ramadan, I pray Allah to forgive and protect you… I wish you a blessed Ramadan. Soumia.
HAPPY RAMADAN, EVEN THOUGH PRICES INCREASE, IT’S OKAY.
This blessed month of Ramadan, this Islamic religion.

Peace be upon you. May Allah accept your fast and voluntary night prayers.
Allah the Almighty blessed us with Ramadan, so we should think about ways to seize its opportunities in order to win in the Hereafter. As for provision, Allah the Provider is in charge of it. Can’t you see that both the rich and the poor fast in order to please Allah the Almighty, and when it’s time to break the fast, both of them have enough food provided by Allah, and their reward is the same, Allah willing? What I want to say is: why don’t we remember the poor, orphans and vulnerable people while we think about diversifying dishes for an Iftar that may cause gluttony/satiety?
Actually, Ramadan has no impact; it’s the State that affects the people and itself. What a useless government!
Peace be upon you. First of all, I’d like to say happy Ramadan to everyone, and happy Iftar and Sohour. May Allah accept your deeds and ours, Allah willing. Regarding the economy in Ramadan, in fact things were supposed to be different. Worship was supposed to be prevalent, but what can we do, life has drastically changed, and Ramadan has become a month of food, rest, sleep and Internet… Well, we pray Allah to guide us and help us for the best, that’s all. I repeat, happy Ramadan, happy Eid, Allah willing, and I wish you many returns of the occasion, with health and goodness. I will keep it short. Take care, and may Allah help you. Greetings to everybody, especially Algerians. Long live Algeria.
First of all, I wish you a blessed Ramadan, Allah willing.
I personally won’t be affected. As for weak minds that are addicted to prohibited things, Ramadan will negatively impact them, especially in the first hours of the day.
I truly hope that the youth will stay away from these things that destroy them, affect their health, and repulse people from them. Please review these issues. I am a normal person, and I don’t have everything, praise be to Allah.
Ramadan is a month of goodness and blessing, where prosperity prevails.
Ramadan is a month of repentance, forgiveness, rewards, fast, and Umrah for those who want to perform it. May Allah accept our good deeds.
I wish you a blessed Ramadan, and may Allah accept our good deeds. Abdou Ahlam.
If there was an Islamic regime, we wouldn’t have this extravagance.
Ramadan is a month of fast and worship.
May Allah guide you, that’s all. But first of all, are you Moroccans, Tunisians or Algerians?
In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious. Ramadan is supposed to be a month where Muslims cut down on food and drinks, and increase their productivity, because Islam guides us to the best of both our religion and life.
The Salafist Group is a dirty race.
We are the people of Fez. Ramadan brought happiness and joy.
I didn’t understand anything you said. Hahahahahahaha
I feel sorry for Ramadan. It used to be a month of repentance, forgiveness and worship, but it’s now a month of food and increasing sales. Girls go out half-dressed due to their lack of faith, and they go to Taraweeh prayers to meet up with their lovers. I feel very sorry for the month of mercy. I am sorry because we are in a society that’s 75% far from religion. I’m sorry, truly sorry…
I was brought to life in Ramadan. Allah is the Greatest.
For Muslims, Ramadan is a month of repenting, earning rewards, and drawing closer to Allah as much as possible. In the Maghreb, however, this blessed month has become an occasion for speculation and quick profit. The poor amongst us can’t buy even the most basic things.
Ramadan is a month of mercy. I think that the economy gets a boost during Ramadan. Why? Because we spend the most during this month, which means that a lot of money flows in the market.
Ramadan this year comes good with blessing. Let’s take this opportunity to pray and do good
Yslam from Mauritania, may God destroy interest and increases our good deeds. It’s true that some people take advantage of Ramadan to increase their commercial profits since members of society like to show off but some give to charity and prepare for the afterlife. So one wins in both words and this manifests itself in the changes affecting stocks and in the development of the personal wealth of some. May God guide us to the path He likes and is pleased with.
Happy Ramadan to the entire Arab nation and may it return with wealth and health and let’s hope the next one will be the same. Greetings to all listeners and only God increases awards and I congratulates all for a happy Ramadan and peace and blessings be upon you.
how are you and i like it so much and thank you so much
Ramadan remains a good thing and a religious event in Arab society but with the increase in the price of goods it becomes a commercial opportunity when some ask more from people who don’t have money.

Ramadan karim and it’s really good to its people. In this holy month, the question that must be asked is with regard to the expenses of Ramadan and how we get this money. Isn’t God good to us during this month more than the others, and how can it not be since neither our budgets are affected nor Muslims are hurt. Everybody spends proportionally to his generosity on himself and on his family, whether rich or poor.
