Green is a colour often linked with the religion of Islam.

It is the colour of the dome at the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah, the colour of the Saudi Arabian and Pakistani flags, and there are some narrations that the Prophet Mohammed (SAW) would frequently wear a green cloak and turban.

However historically, there is an association with the colour green that arises from the description of Paradise in the Qur’an.

Green is mentioned several times, including in describing the clothes that the believers will wear in Jannah (Surah Al-Kahf:31; Al-Insan:21), the gardens therein (Surah Ar-Rahman:64) and the cushions on which believers will recline (Ar-Rahman:76.)

For these reasons, there is often a link between Ramadan and the colour green. Decor found in green is rich and atmospheric – gold is added to enhance the decadence and celebratory nature of the month.

However in truth, there isn't any single colour that represents the season or the religion as a whole. Islam is defined by being a global religion- encompassing all cultures, languages, clothing and cuisines. Therefore anything that is not contrary to the rules of Shariah, is welcomed and adopted.

For this reason you might see Ramadan and Eid commemorated very differently across the globe –  but whether bunting or lanterns, gold or red, twinkly lights or crescent moons – you can be sure that every Muslim is always eager to welcome the best month of the year.
