RamadanOne of the most important times in the Muslim calendar is fast approaching! This year, Ramadan observance will begin on 2nd April and this will continue for 29-30 days until early May.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic Lunar calendar. This is not a fixed month in relation to the western calendar, and begins with the sighting of the moon. In this month, observant adult Muslims will give up food and drink, smoking, and other physical needs during the hours of daylight.

Ramadan is also time for Muslims to purify their souls, refocus attention on religion and practice self-restraint. Fasting will last 29 or 30 days depending upon the sighting of the moon.

Fasting means that lack of dietary nourishment coupled with disturbances in normal sleep patterns may result in fasting individuals feeling more tired than usual. Some staff may also feel a little light headed towards the latter part of the day.

This time of year in the Northern Hemisphere can particularly challenging as there can be up to 18 hours of fasting per day.

There are a number of provisions to support Muslim students and staff across the University, including religious spaces to use for prayer. Ramadan Taraweeh prayers will also take place each night in both campuses. You can find out more about this and view the  Ramadan Jamaat timetable on this webpage.

You can also contact Faith@Campuslife via email if you would like to receive updates about Ramadan support and events.

We wish you all Ramadan Mubarak!
