Ramadan 2020 / Ramadan 1441 Date

ramadan 2020 date
Ramadan 2020

When does Ramadan 2020 Begin?


We are pleased to announce that Ramadan 2020 will begin on Friday, 24th April in all of North, Central and South America, all of Africa, all of Europe and some countries of Asia and French Polynesia. In the remaining countries of Asia and in a major part of Oceania, Ramadan will begin on the next day, Saturday, 25th April 2020. We have published below an extensive list of countries arranged as per the Ramadan start date. Kindly review it.

We invite you to take a look at the visibility curves for Ramadan 1441. You will notice that the Ramadan moon will be born on Thursday, April 23, at 02:25 UTC. As can be seen in the visibility curve, there are good chances of direct Ramadan Crescent Visibility in the Polynesian islands and some part of the American continent, all these countries being either in the green or the blue visibility belt. Indirect Crescent visibility will be acquired in all of Europe, all of Africa and in some parts of Asia before the Fajr prayer in the respective countries (the concept of the extension of the zone of the visibility). Thus, all of North, Central and South America, all of Africa, all of Europe and some countries of Asia and French Polynesia will be able to start Ramadan on Friday, 24th April. We now invite you to take a look at the visibility curve of 24th April, Friday. As can be see, all countries of the world are in either in green or blue zone. Hence, the remaining countries of Asia and in a major part of Oceania, Ramadan will begin on the next day, Saturday, 25th April 2020. Please see below an extensive list of countries arranged as per the beginning date of the Ramadan 2020.

Those who would like to get more details about extension of the zone of the visibility are requested to read our detailed introduction to the Islamic Calendar.

We will be contacting our photographer friends in French Polynesia and parts of US to photograph the crescent on the evening of 23rd April 2020. We will publish Ramadan 1441 live moon sighting reports along with photographs on our website as soon as we get them. These reports will be provided by our astronomer friends and will also be sourced from icoproject.org and moonsighting.com. We invite you to visit our site towards the beginning of Ramadan in order to get updates about crescent sighting.

On the very auspicious day of Ramadan, we will release country specific Islamic calendars for Hijri year 1442 and also for Gregorian year 2021. Hence, please do not forget to visit our site and download the calendar for your country on the day of Eid! Please feel free to contact us by writing to us at makkahc[email protected] if anything is not clear or if you need further information.

Ramadan Mubarak in Advance!
