Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar that is observed by Muslims around the world dedicated to fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. In 2021, Ramadan will start on Monday, April 12, or Tuesday, April 13, and last through Tuesday, May 11. Throughout Ramadan, over 1.9 billion observers, will fast from sunrise to sunset and partake in nightly feasts, prayers, and self-reflection. For those who celebrate Ramadan, we wish you a Ramadan Mubarak (a blessed Ramadan)!
