When is Ramadan?

The ninth month of the Islamic calendar is referred to in Arabic as Ramadan. Because the Islamic and Gregorian years are different lengths, the date of Ramadan in the Gregorian calendar advances by around 11 days every year.

It is regarded as one of the most sacred months in Islam. It is also one of Islam’s Five Pillars. Muslims consider these five principles to be requirements set down by God. Muslims fast only during the month of Ramadan.

Muslims hold that during the month of Ramadan, the Prophet Muhammad received revelations that included some of the first verses of the Islamic holy book, the Qu’ran. At this time, the Quran is recited with special concentration.

The Fast of Ramadan

The entire month of Ramadan, which can be 29 or 30 days long depending on the moon’s appearance, is devoted to fasting.

Muslims focus more on their religion during Ramadan and give their daily worries less attention. It is a moment for prayer and reflection. Muslims might feel closer to God and improve their spiritual health and self-control by fasting, which is regarded as a form of prayer.

Muslims must adhere to tight restrictions during the month-long Ramadan fast. They are not permitted to consume food or beverages during the day. During a fast, it’s also illegal to smoke and have sex.

How can Ramadan affect working hours?

Muslims can eat suhoor, a pre-dawn meal that typically includes protein and fats, to keep them full throughout the day. Once the fast has started, even a small sip of water is considered to constitute a break from it.

Every day, a meal called the iftar and prayer are used to break the fast. Muslims typically visit their relatives and friends in the evening after the iftar. The following morning, the fast continued.

For health reasons, there are various exceptions to the fasting rule. Women who are menstruating, breastfeeding, or pregnant are exempt from the fast. Also exempt from participation are those who are unwell, young children, and the elderly.

The Custom of Observing the Moon

When you see the crescent moon, start your fast and break it then. And if it is hidden, observe Shaban for 30 days (Bukhari and Muslim).

Muslims have traditionally observed the lunar crescent immediately after sunset with their naked eyes to mark the start of Ramadan, doing so in accordance with the Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) command.

The crescent normally appears in the west and is only visible for a brief period of time. The length of Ramadan can also vary because the lunar calendar begins with the moon’s sighting, which begins a 29-day lunar month, and ends with the crescent’s absence, which begins a 30-day lunar month.

Additionally, each Muslim community’s views determine whether or not Islamic institutions will acknowledge moon sightings. Some Muslims hold that each local community must observe the moon on its own, while others may accept that one authority, which stands in for a region, country, or even continent, observes the moon. As a result, individual communities may observe the start and finish of Ramadan on various dates.

Although the traditional method of moon sighting is still regarded as the most authoritative, Muslims all over the world have started employing astronomical calculations to compute moon sighting in place of sighting with the naked eye.

The Value of Last Ten Days of Ramadan 2023

While Muslims believe that the entire month of Ramadan is a time when they can have years’ worth of sins forgiven and receive additional rewards for their prayer, the final ten days of the month are said to be much more auspicious.

Muslims often use this time to read lengthy passages of the Quran, spend part of the night at their local mosque (i’tikaf), and make dua, or supplications, for whatever their hearts desire most, following the example of the Prophet, on him be peace.

The last ten days of Ramadan also offer the chance to experience Laylatul Qadr, also known as “The Night of Power,” which the Quran compares to “better than a thousand months” and during which good worship performance can atone for a lifetime of sins. Though it can happen on any night during this time, this night is traditionally anticipated during the odd nights of the final 10 days of Ramadan.

It will be crucial for Muslims to step up their worship during the final 10 days of Ramadan in 2023 since the blessings of an already exceptional month are increased during this period.

The timing of Last Ten Days of Ramadan 2023

It is anticipated that Ramadan 2023 will start in the evening of March 22nd, 2023, and end in the evening of April 20th, 2023.

Thus, it is anticipated that the final 10 days of Ramadan in 2023 will start in the evening of April 10 and end in the evening of April 20.

The dates for the final 10 days of Ramadan in 2023 are subject to change based on the moon’s sighting, it should be emphasised once more.

Please take note that changes may be made to the schedule for the Last Ten Days of Ramadan 2023

Ramadan dates and calendar 2023 – when is Ramadan 2023?

There has always been a certain sense of mystery and reflection surrounding the start of Ramadan. Religious authorities and intellectuals have historically made this determination under cover of darkness while looking for specific sightings related to the moon’s cycle and appearance.

It’s crucial to remember, though, that Ramadan dates vary across nations due to the lunar cycle, but often only by one day. Therefore, where you live will have a significant impact on the answer to the issue of when Ramadan 2023 begins.

Ramadan 2023 is anticipated to fall on Thursday, March 23, 2023, according to an announcement by the International Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences in the UAE.

Given that Ramadan 2023 is anticipated to last 30 days, Eid ul Fitr is most likely to fall on Friday, April 21, 2023. Naturally, as we near Ramadan, these dates will be confirmed.

Ramadan observances around the world

Ramadan causes a reduction in work and education hours in the majority of Islamic or predominately Muslim nations. Both hotels and the on-site restaurants continue to be open. The majority of the other restaurants are closed during the day, and a few are only open for dine-in.

Generally speaking, eating, drinking, and smoking during the day are not permissible for individuals who do not practise Islam. It may even be illegal in some nations. Women must likewise be careful to dress conservatively and modestly. It is customary to keep shoulders, necklines, and knees covered throughout Ramadan.

The Islamic Calendar

The solar calendar is based on the sun, whereas the Islamic calendar is based on the moon (lunar) (Solar). With the exception of February, the solar calendar months all have 30 or 31 days. The lunar calendar has 29 or 30 days for each month. Thus, Ramadan may last for either 29 or 30 days.)

The beginning and end of the month are determined by a combination of actual moon sightings and astronomical calculations. The method varies according to the location, with some regions largely relying on sighting reports and others solely on calculations. Most American communities adhere to the Islamic Society of North America’s ruling, which recognises that the beginning and end of each month are determined by authentic sightings of the new moon wherever in the country.

Being 11 to 12 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar, the Islamic lunar calendar changes with the seasons. It takes the cycle about 35 years to complete. In this way, over time, the length of the day and consequently the fasting period varies from place to place. No matter where they live, every Muslim will experience an average Ramadan day that lasts around 13.5 hours.
