The holy month of Ramadan 2021 has commenced. The exact date of Ramadan changes every year because the Islamic calendar depends on lunar cycles. Ramadan takes place approximately ten days earlier each year, and this year, it began on April 14 and ends on May 13.

Shops and restaurants with outdoor terraces opened on April 12; hence there are more options for eating out after sunset. Furthermore, two households of six people can meet outdoors, which will make Ramadan much easier to cope with mentally. The Qur’an emphasises the importance of fasting; thus, Muslims who are in good health are expected to fast from sunrise to sunset for Ramadan. The act of fasting enables the person to understand the suffering of those living in poverty and famine. Ultimately, Ramadan is a time for reflection and prayer to feel a deeper connection with Allah.

Eid celebrations take place for two to three days, and it is when Muslims attend Eid prayer, have breakfast together and often give children gifts or money.

A good night’s sleep is another crucial factor of self-care and is vital throughout Ramadan. The beauty is in the struggle, but the end goal is to work on yourself for the greater good.
