( A brief explanation about ramadan )
Ramadan starts on Tuesday 13 of April and last untill the 12 of May 2021
The start of the month of fasting will be determined by the sighting of the new moon,
Why does Ramadan vary each year?
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which is based on a lunar calendar where each month begins at the start of a new moon.
As lunar months are shorter than solar months it means the Islamic calendar does not correspond with the Gregorian calendar followed in the West. It means Ramadan occurs around 10/11 days earlier each year.
The start of Ramadan also varies from country to country by about a day, depending on when the new moon is sighted.
What is Eid al-Fitr?
Eid al-Fitr is the ‘festival of the breaking of the fast’ and marks the end of Ramadan each year.
Muslims wish each other a happy Eid during the celebrations by saying “Eid Mubarak” and often gather with family and friends to eat and pray together.
The festival can last for up to three days and also sees people give money to charity as part of celebrations.
