Sadly, millions of people will go hungry with nothing to eat or drink this Ramadan. Put your Iman into action: £60 can provide relief from hunger and feed a fasting family for a whole month. This Ramadan, feeding is believing.
The Holy month of Ramadan is here, and it is a time for contemplation, reflection and celebration. Be prepared for your fast with our Ramadan Timetable 2023, including times for sunrise, sunset, and prayer.
As the Islamic calendar follows the phases of the moon, the lunar cycle, it falls approximately 10 days earlier each year within the Gregorian calendar. This year, depending on the sighting of the moon, Ramadan is anticipated to start on Wednesday 22 March 2023.
The completion of Ramadan this year is expected to end on Friday 21 April 2023, at the start of Eid al-Fitr. An Arabic phrase meaning ‘Festival of Breaking the Fast’, Eid al-Fitr is a celebratory time spent with friends, family, and the local community. It is forbidden to fast on the first day of Eid al-Fitr and it is traditionally celebrated with lots of great food, gift-giving, and spending time with loved ones.
Eid al-Fitr will start on the sighting of the moon, and this year is expected to fall on Saturday 22 April or Sunday, 23 April 2023.
