Ibis hotel praised for setting up free suhour breakfast for fasting Muslims

A week into Ramadan, Muslims around the world have gotten into the swing of fasting every day but to do that they need to get up in the middle of the night for suhour – a pre-dawn breakfast.

For travelling Muslims, it can be hard to prepare the meal. So one hotel in Dublin decided to help out their guests of the Islamic faith.

Ibis hotel has been praised for putting out a breakfast buffet at 2:30 am to feed a Muslim man staying with them.

When he asked staff for a snack to be eaten before his fast begins, they decided to offer him a little more than that.

So they told him to come down to the restaurant in the middle of the night and when he did, he was pleasantly surprised to see a spread laid out for just for him.

His colleague Hemant told the story on Twitter where it blew up.

People commended the hotel for their kindness while mentioning other hotel chains that offered similar services.

Hemant tagged AccorHotels, the hospitality company that owns the likes of Ibis, Novotel, and upscale chains such as Grand Mercure and Sofitel.

He wrote: ‘Humanity is still alive amidst all the hatred.’

The cricket director added: ‘My point was not about Ramadan in particular, but just about kindness and service and love and understanding.

‘I generally take a bleak view of the world and the people that inhabit it. But this simple act for someone else really uplifted me.’

Another user Sharafat wrote that AccorHotels had a good track record as a Mercure hotel also supplied suhour for him.

‘Mercure Singapore provides a pre-dawn meal menu in each room for Muslim guests. The guest then selects a time slot between 4 am to 5 am and food will be sent out to the room.

‘They offer this service without additional charges.’

Nice to know that these chains are Ramadan friendly.
