Timings for each day during Ramadan can vary, and fortunately many Muslim websites have provided timetables to show when you can break your fast.

The timetable for each day includes the five daily prayers, based around the Five Pillars of Islam.

Fajr is the first of the daily prayers and also marks the beginning of that days fast.
