How Is the Date of Ramadan Determined?

Ramadan cirlce

The dates for Ramadan are determined by the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is the ninth Islamic month. As the beginning of an Islamic month is based on the sighting of the new moon, the festival's Gregorian calendar dates change each year.

The Islamic calendar is a Hijri lunar calendar consisting of 12 lunar months (354 or 355 days in total), and so it does not align with the Gregorian calendar. This is why the dates for Ramadan begin 10 to 12 days earlier each year.

In the Islamic calendar, a month begins when the first crescent of a new moon is sighted. Ramadan begins when the new crescent moon first appears. Since the timing of the new moon sighting varies across different regions, the date for Ramadan may slightly differ depending on the region.

Ramadan timings are usually either linked to the Saudi Arabian official calendar or local moonrise calculations or sightings. As this differs across Muslim communities and the globe, and sunset and sunrise timings differ too, Muslims in different countries and communities celebrate Ramadan on different dates and fast for different periods.
