Thanks for this useful information. There are some minor correction to the Ramadan timings above, for example: Lulu is open only from 9am-1am. FFC Sat-Thu (8.30-5.30pm, 7.30am-1pm), Al Ahli 8.30am-3pm, 7.30pm-1am, etc.
I believe this listing is based on last year's timings.
I am compiling Ramadan Opening Hours based on published 2011 Ramadan Opening Hours in Gulf Times by the respective party and their official website. Check this link: http://wahyuinqatar.wordpress.com/2011/08/01/ramadan-opening-hours-2011-in-qatar/

Thanks again!
