When is the 2023 Ramadan?

Ramadan is expected to begin in the United States on March 22 and last until April 21, when Eid al-Fitr is celebrated.

The Islamic calendar, which is based on the lunar cycle, is used to determine the date, which changes every year. The ninth month of the Islamic calendar is Ramadan.

Ramadan: What is it?

Fasting, spending time with loved ones, and praying, including asking for forgiveness, are all part of the holy month of Ramadan. Muslims believe that during this month, God revealed to Prophet Muhammad that he was responsible for carrying God's message and gave him the Qur'an.

Fasting is an important part of Ramadan and one of Islam's pillars. Muslims who have reached puberty and are physically able observe a fast that lasts from dawn to sunset. They also avoid drinking liquids, eating, engaging in sexual activity (although couples are permitted to do so at night once the fast is broken), having negative thoughts, and having bad intentions. After praying in the evening, they eat iftr, a meal that is usually shared with friends and family, to end their fast.

Laylat al-Qadr, which falls within the final ten days of Ramadan, is the holiest night of the month. This year, it is anticipated to take place on April 18th. The "Night of Power," also known as Laylat al-Qadr, is when the Prophet Muhammad is said to have received the first verses of the Qur'an from the Angel Jibril. Today, it is observed as a night for prayer, meditation, and charitable acts.

How does Eid al-Fitr work?

Eid al-Fitr, which means "festival of breaking the fast" in Arabic, marks the end of Ramadan. Different countries celebrate Eid al-Fitr in different ways, but some involve spending time with loved ones, giving gifts, helping the less fortunate, and eating feasts and traditional food.
