17th JUNE 2015 SUNSET RAMZAN 30 DAYS ROJA( FASTING ) MONTH STARTS
When is Ramadan in 2015?
until Friday, the 17th of July.
Note that in the Muslim calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day,
so observing Muslims will celebrate Ramadan on the sunset of Wednesday, the 17th
Although Ramadan is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar, the date on
the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, since the Gregorian calendar is a
solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. This difference means
Ramadan moves in the Gregorian calendar approximately 11 days every year.
The date of Ramadan may also vary from country to country depending on whether
the moon has been sighted or not.
The dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by theFiqh Council of
North America for the celebration of Ramadan. Note that these dates are based
on astronomical calculations to affirm each date, and not on the actual sighting of
the moon with the naked eyes. This approach is accepted by many, but is still
being hotly debated.
