The Islamic Ministry has announced that the holy month of Ramadan in the Maldives will start on Tuesday, April 13, 2021.
Last year, Ramadan began during the lockdown which meant mosques were closed and people were told to stay at home. However, HPA has decided to ease several restrictions in time for Ramadan along with the successful vaccination program.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar which Muslims observe by fasting between sunrise and sunset.
An important month for Muslims, the annual event is meant to help people focus on prayer, purification and charitable acts.
