When Do Muslims Fast?

When do Muslims fast? Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is either 29 or 30 days depending on the moon sighting. Ramadan is from sun up until sun down. From Fajr prayer all the way until Maghrib we shouldn’t eat, drink or have intimacy with our spouses.

We determine the entrance of Ramadan by spotting the crescent moon. Typically it should be a trusted person who tells us when the entrance of that moon is. Nowadays there are many organizations that tell us this. Often we see that not all Muslims start fasting on the same day. Don’t let this discourage you from fasting the month of Ramadan.

The conclusion of Ramadan is with the festival of Eid. On the last day of Ramadan you are told that this is the last day of Ramadan. The next day will be Eid and what is important you celebrate on this day.
