When is Ramadan in 2011?

Ramadan in 2011 will start on Monday, the 1st of August and will continue for 30 days until Tuesday, the 30th of August.



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 Sunday, the 31st of July.


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 the Fiqh 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.
