CONFIRMED: Muslims to begin fasting early next month. Check the date out.

The Supreme Leader and President of the Tijaniyya Muslim Council of Ghana, Khalifa Sheikh Ahmed Abulfaid Maikano has announced that the Random fasting for 2021 will kick start on 10th April.

He made this announcement to the Muslims community in the early hours of Tuesday March 30.


The pronouncement was made based on the calculations of the household of Sheikh Abdullahi Maikano Jallo which is done using concrete and evidence of nature according to the Islamic Calendar


“The 29 or 30-day Fasting will commence on the 10th of April 2021,” he said.

He continued to say that, “intentions should be taken on the 10th against 11th April at dawn because 11th April will be the first day of this year’s Ramadan (fasting).”


Ramadan comes with a lot of principles to be observed by Muslims who may part take in the Obligatory Pillars of Islam. Below are Few Principles gathered by the news team:

During Ramadan, Muslims above fifteen (15) years abstain from eating any food, drinking any liquids, smoking cigarettes, and engaging in any sexual activity, from dawn to sunset.

Some Islamic scholars are against the cleansing of the gum as a principle but others do not see the need to practice such an obligation. Debates are still on going as to whether such an obligation should or should not be observed. It’s for now hanging and may be observed based on one’s own preference.

Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam. Fasting is prescribed for all Muslims who are mature and healthy enough to do so for the full day. So Muslims fast as an act of worship, a chance to get closer to God, and a way to become more compassionate to those in need.


The yearly fasting is done for approximately 30 days after which a great festival is observed to signify the end of the fasting period.


With this month regarded as the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world are supposed to observe the fasting period unless Children under 15 years, Women on their monthly flow or any person who for health reasons cannot part take in the fasting.


As the name implies, the month must be kept holy and any form of sin or dirt must be avoided.


As the holy month of Ramadan approaches, we wish every Muslim a safe Journey through this month.
