Are there differences between the Sunni and the Shi’a regarding Ramadan and Fasting?

0

There are a few minor differences between the two on account of the interpretations of the respective jurists. The following differences should be noted. (1). The Sunnis end the fast at sunset, whilst the Shi’ahs ends at dusk. (2). The Sunnis celebrate Layltul Qadr on the eve of 27th of Ramadan. The Shi’ahs celebrates it on the eve of the 23rd. They also perform the rites of Laylatul Qadr on the eve of 19th and the 21st of Ramadan. (3). The Sunnis give a lot of importance to Taraweeh prayers during Ramadan after the daily evening (Eisha) prayer. The Shi’ah Muslim’s do not say the Taraweeh. Instead, they gather in their centers to do Qur’an recitation, say supplications (Du’as) for Ramadan and partake from lectures on the significance of fasting, Ramadan, and other religious topics.
