Haqq Al-laila








Haqq Al-laila by Enas Meatermawi
Haqq- Al-Laila is a cultural tradition that the countries of the Gulf practiced back in the day for the joy of young children and adults. In the night of the Middle of Sha’baan, children wear their best clothes and go around the houses in the neighbourhood before the Maghrib Prayer to collect candy and nuts in bags called Kharayet, and they say special chants for this occasion. Haqq-Al-Laila remains a continuing tradition to this day to assure the connection between the society and its cultural heritage. The book explores this beloved ritual and how it is celebrated.
