When is the start date for Ramadan 2021?
Ramadan is the name for the ninth month of the year in the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is a month of fasting in the Muslim tradition and like every month in this lunar calendar, it begins exactly when the first crescent of the new moon is visible in the sky. According to the Quran, on the first day of Ramadan, the Muslim standing there must perform a great ablution – that is, purification with pure water – and formulate his intention to fast every day of the holy month. In other words, abstain from food, drink, sexual intercourse and smoking from sunrise to sunset.

Ramadan 2021 and the Coronavirus
In 2020, Saudi Arabia decided to suspend the issuance of visas for the Umrah and access to the Mosque of the Prophet ﷺ in Medina from February 27. It then closed its borders and suspended the Umrah, a minor pilgrimage, indefinitely. For 2021, it is too early to know what will happen, especially for Umrah during Ramadan.
Umrah during Ramadan 2021
Traditionally, the month of Ramadan is popular for Muslims to perform an Umrah (or „small pilgrimage“) for all or part of the month. Although the Umrah season resumed in the fall of 2020, pilgrims are performing it under drastic conditions related to the Covid 19 coronavirus pandemic.
What are the rules of Ramadan?
The prohibitions during the month of Ramadan are quite strict. Deliberate eating, drinking, smoking or having sex during the day „devalues“ the fast. However, since forgetting cannot be punished, accidentally eating or drinking does not invalidate the fast. Intentionally having sex during Ramadan is considered a „great sin.“ It is perfectly permissible to swallow your own saliva and, of course, to brush your teeth. The only thing really forbidden is to swallow anything other than your own saliva. Also forbidden is obscene language, insults, false statements, and even „unkind“ behavior. A healthy diet and good hydration are also preferable when breaking the fast.
Verses in the quran on Ramadan
- „Oh, you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may learn piety and righteousness” [Quran,2:183]
- “The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [th`e new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you, and perhaps you will be grateful.” (Quran: 21:85)
- “Allah has made Laylat al-Qadr in this month, which is better than a thousand months, as Allaah says…The Night of Al-Qadr is better than a thousand months. Therein descend the angels and the Rooh [Jibreel (Gabriel)] by Allaah’s Permission with all Decrees, there is peace until the appearance of dawn.” — Al-Qadar 97:1-5
- “The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: He who gives food for a fasting person to break his fast, he will receive the same reward as him, except that nothing will be reduced from the fasting person reward.” [Ahmad, at-Tirmidhee, Ibn Maajah, Ibn Hibbaan, Saheeh].”
