Ramadan 2020 is already in full swing. However, this year’s Holy Month is celebrated in a tad different way as people who observe fasting will be doing so while on lockdown regulations in the UAE and around the world. Friends and families are unable to break their fast together or colleagues to book an Iftar night together. Ramadan is expected to end at the latter of the month of May which according to an official statement from the International Astronomy Center (IAC) will be on Saturday, 23rd of May. With just over a week until the countdown to the Eid celebration, we can still make the most out of this Holy Month.
