Bridge Housing wishes its residents, staff and community of the Muslim faith a happy Ramadan 2021.

Ramadan officially begins today, Monday 12 April. During this holy month, Muslims observe the fasting practice of Sawm, by consuming meals before dawn and after sunset, to cleanse their souls.

The sunset and the start of prayers mark the end of the day's fast when it is traditional to break the fast by eating dates.

Ramadan is also a time for reflection, contemplation and celebration. Following the lunar calendar of Islam, Ramadan lasts for 30 days, ending at sunset on 12 May and followed by the festival of Eid al-Fitr
