Ramadan is the month when Muslims worldwide share the values of empathy, kindness and generosity. Whether you’re celebrating with family or just starting to learn about the holiday, Google can help you observe Ramadan with these four tools.

1. Celebrate Ramadan’s joy with colors and greetings

Simply search for “Ramadan 2023” in your language, and you will have access to all the information related to this month, including access to greeting cards online. You can also scroll through our Ramadan coloring book, where you can engage your inner artist and color beautiful artwork with Google Arts & Culture to share with your family and friends.

2. Browse our shopping guide for inspiration

To help you prepare for Ramadan, we’ve created a Ramadan Shopping Guide which collects trending products that are helpful during Ramadan in countries within the Middle East, North Africa and Indonesia.

When we analyzed search and shopping trends, we found a few common themes. Search interest related to home decoration, like Ramadan lanterns, grew 20% year over year. A similar spike was observed in searches for new recipes and kitchen appliances as families gather for Iftar (to break their fast). Plus, during Ramadan people search more for gaming gadgets to play with their friends and health-related products like sports hijab to stay fit.

3. Shop what you see

By using the camera on your phone, you can search for a delicious type of dessert you’ve tried at your friend’s house, or find your next favorite decoration item to buy during Ramadan. You can open the Google app on your phone, and tap on the camera icon. Just snap a photo or screenshot and you’ll find exact or similar results to shop from or to explore for inspiration with the help of Google Lens.
