Ramadan, or the holy month of fasting and abstinence, is feted in all Muslim countries around the world. But as the diaspora continues to grow stronger – Muslims are the only major religious group forecasted to grow faster than the world’s population as a whole–brands are standing up and taking notice. Here’s a look at successful Ramadan restaurant and brand promotions from a few powerful brands that welcomed the Holy Month with strong messages and even stronger promotions.

Grab’s Wins Hearts with Message of Peace & Solidarity

Grav’s video commercial of a unified Muslim with profession of online-based transportation drivers and its invite for peace and solidarity hit a sweet spot. Regarding all how far the drivers are going for their daily trip, they’re always coming back to one stop that connects and is a community for all the Grab and Go-jek drivers. This commercial superficially extended the message to celebrate the blessings of the Holy Month. With the happiness and closeness that Grab’s bring to the table, it is make sense for them to have the #BahagiaItuDekat.


Bahagia itu sesederhana merangkul perbedaan. Apapun jalan yang dipilih.Bahagia itu berjalan bersama dalam harmoni karena di sini kita semua bersaudara. Bahagia itu dekat. Sedekat berkah Tuhan di bulan yang mulia.#BahagiaItuDekat
