London Ramadan Calendar 2021

Below, you can find all important Ramadan 2021 dates via the timetable sourced from the East London and Regents Park Mosques. The first day of Sawm (fasting) is expected to be Tuesday 13 April, depending on the sighting of the moon.

All Muslims should familiarise themselves with the timings below (local variants are also available below the main London timetable). Anyone who has not finished Suhur (pre-dawn meal) by the time Fajr (morning prayer) has finished is disqualified from that day’s fast.

Sawm will be finished at Iftar (sunset) and the beginning of Maghrib prayers – traditionally, the fast is broken by eating dates before the evening meal. Sunrise will occur anywhere between one and two minutes earlier each morning, with the sun setting roughly one or two minutes later each evening.

For other cities, please refer to the local variations below. Variations are in minutes.

There is no better time to make your Zakat donation than during Ramadan. This is how the Prophet's (saw) generosity was described in Ramadan:

Ibn 'Abbas said, "Allah's Messenger (saw) was the most generous of people in charity, but he was generous to the utmost in the month of Ramadan. Jibril (as) would meet him every year during the month of Ramadan until it ended, and Allah's Messenger (saw) recited to him the Qur'an; and when Jibril (as) met him, Allah's Messenger (saw) was more generous in giving charity than the blowing wind." [Muslim]

As we begin our month of fasting, it is important that we remember those less fortunate who simply do not know when their next meal will come. The Prophet (saw) described Ramadan as, "the month of sympathy for one's fellowmen" [Ibn Khuzaimah]. It is for this reason, when those most in need are at the forefront of our minds, that many choose this as the opportune time to pay Zakat.

It is obligatory on every Zakat giver to give Zakat-al-Fitr (also known as Fitrana) on behalf of themselves and every member of their family (minor and mature) before the Eid prayer. There is more reward in paying this during Ramadan, however, Zakat can be paid at any time of the year, assuming you meet the nisab threshold.

Established in 1993, Muslim Hands is an aid agency and NGO helping those affected by poverty, conflict and natural disaster in over 20 countries worldwide.
