Ramadan 2021: Date, Sehri and iftar timings

Ramadan is one of the most important periods in Islam during which people observe a fast.

This year, Ramadan will begin on April 14, 2021 and, end on the evening of May 12, 2021 (dates may vary).

During this time, Muslims observe fasting, which is called roza.

While keeping roza, one should not eat or drink anything while the sun is shining.

People wake up early in the morning to have their first meal or sehri and in the evening, they break their fast with the evening meal called iftaar.

This month is auspicious and sacred to all believers.

The dates for Ramadan vary each year because they are dependent on the lunar calendar.

Ramadan falls in the ninth month of the calendar and it begins once the crescent moon is sighted.

Ramadan or Ramazan originates from the Arabic word, ‘ar-ramad’, which means scorching heat.

It is believed that it was during this period that the angel Gabriel revealed the words of the Quran to Muhammad.

Fasting is done by believers to remember and commemorate this sacred revelation. Abstinence is followed and while maintaining the fast, believers give most priority to spiritual purification.
