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.
"O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous"
- Surat Al-Baqarah 2:183
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.
Following the completion of Ramadan, this year is anticipated to end on Friday, 21 April 2023, which is 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 with the sighting of the moon and this year is expected to fall on Saturday, 22 April or Sunday, 23 April.
