Countdown to Ramadan | Days Until Ramadan
Originating from the Arabic root “ramida“, meaning ´scorching heat´, Ramadan marks a month-long period of fasting for Muslims which began in the second year of the Muslim migration from Mecca to Medina. The period of fasting lasts from dawn until sunset with food and drink served before and after these times of the day.
This annual observance, lasting 29-30 days based on the sightings of the crescent moon, often includes an increased offering of prayers and recitations of the Quran
Although Ramadan is observed on the same day each year in the Islamic Calendar which is a Lunar Calendar, the same date according to the Gregorian Calendar varies as it is a type of Solar Calendar. The slight variation in dates means that Ramadan moves, according to the Gregorian Calendar, around 11 days every year.
