Plus, international standards for terrorist attacks are pretty similar so that won't make too much of a difference.

Ramadan is not a work-free month just a food-free

but construction will probably bee slower with no food and the upcoming Eid ul-Fitr and Hajj will probably slow it down as well with millions of people visiting.

You like use the word like, like when you like type too?

Good question though. When the work is stopped, there are obviously Islamic reasons for it. Probably not heat reasons.
