Ramadan 2021

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community announces the anticipated start of Ramadan 2021

Ramadan 2021 is anticipated to begin after sunset on Tuesday, April 13th, with the first full day of fasting to begin on Wednesday, April 14th, InshaAllah. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community follows scientific methodology to determine the start of Ramadan based on which date the new moon can be visible to the naked eye (i.e. without the use of an optical aid). Based on reliable global data published from the Nautical Almanac Office in the UK, it is understood that the moon will be first visible by the naked eye in the United States on April 13th. Thus, we anticipate the first day of Ramadan to be Wendesday, April 14th, InshaAllah.
