The ninth month of the Islamic calendar is Ramadan. Ramadan is a great, festive, auspicious and noble month because Allah sent the Qur'an to Muslims during this month.
The beginning and end of Ramadan is based on the appearance of the new moon, that is, on the evening of August 29th in the Islamic calendar, the Islamic leader looks at the sky from the minaret of the mosque. If he sees a slender new moon, the next day is September. On the 1st (enter Ramadan), August is still 29 days; otherwise, the 3rd day is September 1st (enter Ramadan), and August becomes 30 days.
It is still necessary to observe the moon when Ramadan is out. On the evening of September 29, if you see a new moon, the next day will be October 1 (Eid al-Fitr), making September into 29 days; otherwise, Ramadan will be extended by another day, September Still 30 days.
Due to the different times of seeing the crescent moon, different Islamic countries enter Ramadan at different times. At the same time, because the Islamic calendar has about 355 days per year, which differs by about 10 days from the Gregorian calendar, Ramadan has no fixed time in the Gregorian calendar.
During Ramadan, Muslims fast from 3 am to 16:00 every morning (no food or drink), and they can only drink tea and eat after sunset.
