The UAE has revealed the official Ramadan 2021 dates later on Monday, April 12.
When the crescent moon (called hilal) coincides with the celestial new moon, Ramadan begins.

We know that the first day of fasting will be tomorrow now that it has been found and the dates have been set.
Ramadan is a significant period in the Islamic calendar, during which Muslims fast (also known as sawm) for about 30 days from sunrise to sunset. Fasting is one of Islam’s five foundations, along with regular prayer, charitable donation, religious declaration, and the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.
Ramadan is a month of meditation, compassion, and sharing, making it an ideal time to reconnect with family while still supporting others.
During Ramadan, working hours are cut, as are school hours – but consult with your child’s school as these can differ.
