When does Ramadan begin this year ?
Imsak, iftar, breaking the fast
On our calendars, there is no Imsak column. This choice follows the responses of scholars on this issue, as al 'Outheymine and Albani to name but one. It is therefore permissible to eat until the call to prayer of al fajr. No need to abstain 10 or 15 min before for fear of eating and getting surprised by the adhan. On the contrary, the longer you delay the souhour, the better. As for the rupture of siyam Ramadan (and outside), it is the reverse, as soon as you break the siyam, the better it will be. It is therefore best to avoid praying al maghrib before the time of the iftar. The logical order is to break the fasting by dates, water or milk, to pray and then to eat.
The duration of daily fasting depends on the number of hours between fajr and sunset (maghrib). In summer, the days are longer, so the state of fasting lasts longer. On the other hand, the nights are very short. Conversely in winter, fasting Ramadan is very easy, while night watches last longer.
