Download the 2020 Ramadan Calendar

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which lasts 29 to 30 days. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating and drinking during daylight hours and is intended to teach Muslims about patience, spirituality, humility and submissiveness to God.

The holiday of Eid-ul-Fitr marks the end of the fasting period of Ramadan and the first day of the following month.

The Ramadan Calendar gives you the dates for fasting and the timings for starting and breaking your fast. It also gives the prayer timings during the month of Ramadan.

Islamic dates are subject to the visibility of the new moon and variation  can take place if this sighting of the crescent is done globally, regionally or locally. The following possible scenarios can occur this year:

  1. Global Sighting (or prediction of sighting)
    Ramadan (30 days) starting Friday 24 April and ending Saturday 23 May with Eid on Sunday 24 May 2020.
  2. Regional Sighting
    Ramadan (29 days) starting Saturday 25 April and ending Saturday 23 May with Eid on Sunday 24 May 2020.
  3. Local Sighting
    Ramadan (30 days) starting Saturday 25 April and ending Sunday 24 May with Eid on Monday 25 May 2020.
When you are notified of the commencement of Ramadan through your community, indicate the dates you will follow under the relevant “Ramadan” column.
Please stay in contact with your local mosque for announcement of Ramadan and Eid dates.
