Ramadan 2021: Fasting around the world | Infographic news


This year, the Muslim holy month of Ramadan is likely to begin Tuesday, April 13. The time before sunrise to sunset varies from 10 to 21 hours depending on where you are in the world.

Fasting requires fasting, drinking, smoking and having sex in order to achieve “taqwa,” also known as a sense of God.

Ramadan starts 10 to 12 days earlier each year. This is because the Islamic calendar is based on the “Hijri” lunar calendar with months from 29 to 30 days in length. The next time Ramadan will start around April 13 will be about 33 years from now, or 2054.

The number of daytime hours varies from country to country. Muslims living in the world’s southernmost countries like Chile or New Zealand will fast for an average of 11 hours while those living in northern countries like Iceland or Norway will fast for more than 18 hours.

For Muslims living in the Northern Hemisphere, the number of fasting hours will be slightly shorter this year and will continue to decline until 2032, meaning Ramadan will fall on the winter solstice – the shortest day of the year . After that, the number of fasting hours would increase until the summer solstice – the longest day of the year in the North. For Muslims who live south of the equator, the opposite happens.

Below are the number of fasting hours in cities around the world. Actual fasting times and times will vary from day to day, as are calculation methods:

In the northernmost cities such as Longyearbyen, Norway, where the sun does not set from April 20 to August 22, religious rulings, or laws, have been enacted to obey the time in Mecca, Saudi Arabia or nearest Muslim country.
