Muslims are expected to check their respective cities and towns to know their actual Iftar & Sehri timings. The time varies from one region to another due to these towns' geographical locations. The correct timings are significant to note since fasting occurs between the two meals.

When is Ramadan 2021?

The expected Ramadan dates will be on Tuesday 13th April 2021. This date is the same for other places such as United States, UK, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. Since the crescent moon typically appears approximately a day after the new moon, it is easy to predict the beginning of Ramadan. Nonetheless, Muslims prefer to wait for the crescent moon's direct visual observation to confirm the opening of the holy month.

Why do Ramadan dates vary?

Muslim believers follow the lunar calendar, thus making the dates of Ramadan vary from one year to the other. The lunar calendar has 29.3 days, while the solar calendar has between 30 and 31 days. As a result, Ramadan takes place 11 days earlier than the previous year.

Similarly, the sun may rise and set earlier or later than the previous days in some regions. As a result, this makes the time for fasting to change from one day to the other throughout the entire month.

Religious practices

During Ramadan, Muslim practice several religious activities to mark the celebrations. The most common activity during Ramadan is fasting from dawn to sunset.
