Ramadan 2021 France: All You Need To Know

With a population of 5% Muslims, France is one of the European countries where people recognize Ramadan and Muslims fasting for their spiritual pursuit of heaven. Most of the French people respect Muslims fasting and avoid eating or drinking in front of them during this holy month.

The Muslim community in France celebrates Ramadan every year with open-air Iftars and gathering around after eating. However, due to the current situation with COVID-19, things might change.

Before I start this Q&A of the most asked questions about Ramadan 2021 in France, I would like to invite you to check out HalalTrip’s Ramadan page. There you can find all the information that you need to know about Ramadan as a Muslim.

Are masjids open during Ramadan 2021 in France?

Many Muslims report that Ramadan in France is really great. They organize Sermons, recitations of the Holy Quran, and pray Tarawih in mosques. But this year, that’s not going to be 100% possible because of COVID-19. The mosques won’t be open to the public. So, Ramadan 2021 in France this year is going to be more about spiritual introspection, than community bonding.
