Ramadan 2024: The dates for Islam’s most holy month, Eid the Fitr, revealed
Ramadan was the most anticipated month for Muslims worldwide, and millions eagerly looked forward to it every day, from sunrise (Suhoor) until evening (Iftar).
Muslims eagerly anticipate Ramadan, an annual religious holiday that provides the opportunity for self-purification, deepening one’s devotion, and strengthening one’s connection to faith. Only six months remain to experience Ramadan – it promises spiritual refreshment and community cohesion among its practitioners.

Officials have announced that Ramadan 2024 will begin on Thursday, March 12 – The Thursday of Ramadan itself will also take place this year, while Eid ul Fitr is celebrated on April 12, 2024.
Ramadan marks the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and offers Muslims an opportunity to renew their faith through fasting and performing spiritual exercises that help us acknowledge mistakes we’ve made and develop better behaviors.
Muslims believe it to be the moment when the Holy Quran descended from heaven to guide humanity. After abstaining from eating or drinking between sunrise and sunset, Muslims usually enjoy a substantial meal at sunset as their reward.
