Ramadan 2021

For Muslims, Ramadan observes the month when the Quran was revealed and is marked by fasting, prayer, and reading of the Holy Book.

This year in Salt Lake City, Ramadan begins on Tuesday, April 13, and ends at sunset on Wednesday, May 12. Start and end dates for Ramadan observations may vary by one day depending on location and schools of thought within the Islamic tradition. The majority of Muslims in the United States will be observing Ramadan this year on the dates mentioned above.

Many practicing Muslims observe fasting and additional Taraweeh prayers during Ramadan. Fasting is typically observed by abstaining from food and water from dawn to sunset and is considered mandatory by many Muslims throughout the month of Ramadan. There are five prayer times throughout the day, namely Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha. After Isha, Taraweeh prayers last for approximately two hours and are generally considered highly recommended rather than mandatory. Please see schedule.

For Administration and Faculty

  • As noted, Ramadan will begin on Tuesday, April 13, and will continue through the end of the semester, including finals week, and will end on May 12.
  • In light of remote learning, coordination of Ramadan observance and accommodation will need to take into account the various time zones in which students are living.
  • Students observing the fast may ask for a 15-minute break during class to pray. If a class is during or after sunset, students may turn off their cameras to eat.
  • Due to fasting practices, Muslim students may opt to request religious accommodations for all course requirements, including final exams.
