New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: Ramadan 2021 is one of the most auspicious festivals of Muslims as during this month they observe fast or 29 or 30 days called Roza. As per Islamic belief, Roza, one of the five pillars of Islam, helps in detoxifying the soul and brings one closer to Allah. During this month, Muslims consume food twice a day, that is, during dawn (Sehri) and after dusk (Iftar). Also, it is said that Laylat al-Qadr (one of the odd-numbered nights during the last ten days of the holy month) was the day when the holy book Quran first came to earth from heaven and revealed itself to Prophet Muhammed.

This festival marks the end of the holy month and the start of the Shawwal, the 10th month of 1442 Hijri as per the Islamic calendar.
