Muslims all over the world are all set for the holy month of Ramzan in 2021. The pious 30 days of Ramzan strengthen the faith through fasting and prayer.
During Ramzan or Ramadan Muslims recite the Holy Quran and give alms to the needy. This year 2021 will also see the same sentiment but with a precaution against mass gathering during Ramzan.
In the wake of rising coronavirus cases across India and the globe, there will be no mass gatherings as before.
Ramzan begins with the sighting of the crescent moon. As per the Muslim faith which follows a lunar calendar.
As per the Qatar Calendar House (QCH), the new moon for Ramzan 2021 will appear on April 12 at 02:31 GMT.
During this holy month of Ramzan Muslims wake up at a designated time. They eat before the morning azaan. They call it sehri.
For the remaining hours of Roza, believers stay empty stomach until evening Maghrib azaan, which they call iftaar. During Ramzan, it is believed that Roza cleanses the entire human body system. Spiritually also, the believers try to make the bond stronger with the almighty Allah. No matter how different the 2021 Ramzan be, the reverence remains the same.
Ramzan is the fasting month. People abstain from all perceived evils. Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. Muslims all over, from morning to evening, refrain from eating and drinking.
Then during iftaar, they all traditionally gather to break their fast with a date and other food items. It was in this holy month of Ramzan when God had revealed the first verses of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.
