When does Ramadan 2021 Begin?


We are pleased to announce that Ramadan 2021 could begin on Tuesday, 13th April in all of North, Central and South America, all of Africa, all of Europe and some countries of Asia and French Polynesia. In the remaining countries of Asia and in a major part of Oceania, Ramadan could begin on the next day, Wednesday, 14th April 2021. We have published below an extensive list of countries arranged as per the Ramadan start date. Kindly review it.

We invite you to take a look at the visibility curves for Ramadan 1442. You will notice that the Ramadan moon will be born on Monday, April 12, at 02:30 UTC. As can be seen in the visibility curve, there are good chances of direct Ramadan Crescent Visibility in the Polynesian islands and some part of the American continent, all these countries being either in the green or the blue visibility belt. Indirect Crescent visibility will be acquired in all of Europe, all of Africa and in some parts of Asia before the Fajr prayer in the respective countries (the concept of the extension of the zone of the visibility). Thus, all of North, Central and South America, all of Africa, all of Europe and some countries of Asia and French Polynesia will be able to start Ramadan on Tuesday, 13th April.

We now invite you to take a look at the visibility curve of 13th April, Tuesday. As can be see, all countries of the world are in either in green or blue zone. Hence, the remaining countries of Asia and in a major part of Oceania, Ramadan will begin on the next day, Saturday, 14th April 2021. Please see below an extensive list of countries arranged as per the beginning date of the Ramadan 2021.
