Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, also known as the Hijri calendar. During the month, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and sex from dawn until sunset.
This month begins approximately 11 days earlier every year. The arrival of the crescent moon signals its beginning as well as its end.
Similar to last year, Ramadan will be marked by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the pandemic spreading throughout the Muslim world, as well as in countries with large Islamic communities, social gatherings are prohibited.
