We all love Ramadan and how it changes our lives every year. Our sisters and brothers in Finland also share the same sentiment about this holy month of asceticism and spirituality. Ramadan 2021 in Finland will bring joy to the over five million Muslims who live there, as it does every year.
As you already know, location and time play a huge role in determining how you’re going to spend Ramadan. The situation in Finland is quite different from the other countries. Because of its geographical location in the far reaches of the European north, Finland is an oddity. For example, the sun doesn’t set for six months in the town of Rovaniemi in Finland.
Anyway, if you’re keen on knowing all there is to know about Ramadan 2021 in Finland, you should really check out HalalTrip’s Ramadan microsite. You’ll absolutely love all the info you can find there.

The Qibla Direction is something that all the local Muslims know. Since Finland is in the farthest northwest of Europe, intuitively, we can deduce that the Qibla Direction is directed toward the southwest, where the holy Kaaba is. However, since this is the 21st century and technology has made everything easy, you can always track the Qibla direction with an app.
According to some scholars, the 27th day of Ramadan is Laylatul Qadr. However, it’s believed to be on the last odd-numbered days of Ramadan.
There are many signs that people look for to guarantee when Laylatul Qadr is. For Example, some believe that it’s the most peaceful night, dogs rarely bark, and the weather is neither too cold nor hot (I don’t know about Finland because it’s always cold).
Ramadan might end on Wednesday, May 12, which makes the next day Eid al-Fitr. That’s Thursday, May 13.

According to the Finish government website, public gatherings of more than six people are not allowed, and private gatherings of more than six people should be avoided.
Therefore, masjids are not going to be open, but nothing sure. You can always check the Halal Trip App to see if there are any open mosques. The same might be applicable for Islamic classes.
Several Halal restaurants all over Finland offer food delivery. So, you can always deliver food. But honestly, I prefer to eat homemade food during Ramadan, so I’m not a fan of delivery during this holy month. However, if you want to find all the Halal Restaurants that offer food delivery, you can just use the Halal Trip App.
