When does everybody eat in Ramadan?
During the holy month, Muslims eat between the hours of sunset and sunrise, so it’s fine to enjoy a meal in public during this time. Muslims break their fast with family and friends over the evening meal, known as iftar. This is followed by suhoor, which is a meal taken very early in the morning (before dawn).
The timings for imsak: – when Muslims have to stop eating and begin their fast – will be at 4.27 am, with Maghrib prayers at 6.41 pm.
“The Ramadan crescent is expected to occur on Monday, April 12, 2021 at 6.31 am in the UAE, and will rise about 20 minutes after sunset. This means that Tuesday April 13 will be the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan 1442,” said Al Jarwan.
Al Jarwan’s predicts that the crescent moon for the month of Shawwal will be on May 11 at 11 pm and will only be seen on Wednesday evening. “This indicates that Thursday May 13 will be the first of Shawwal and the first day of Eid Al Fitr,” he said.
Who all are exempt from fasting?
Muslim children, pregnant women, nursing mothers, the sick, and certain other categories of people are exempt from fasting.
