Ramadan is the holy month of the Muslim calendar year. It is the 9th month of the year. All Muslims are required to fast during the month of Ramadan. A fast is a ritual which starts early in the morning Just before the sunrise and end right after the sunset, one must not drink or eat any thing during fast and also avoid any activity that may be considered sinful un ethical or lude. Hence the Muslims observe this month as a complete prayers month.

In Dubai office and market times also change to facilitate people to observe fast. Besides fasting there are many cultural and religious activities done during this month which makes this month enjoyable and unique for Muslims as well as non Muslim visitors. The Government of Dubai launches special promotion activities for tourists to come and visit Dubai during Ramadan to experience this holiness and know the culture of Islam in Dubai.

Ramadan 2022

The lunar year is around 10 days shorter than the solar Gregorian year. The Islamic calendar comprises 12 months based on the lunar cycle, which is known as the Hijri (Migration) year of Mohammad (PBUH) from Makkah to Madina. The Islamic year Hijri 1 corresponds to AD622. We are currently in the Hijri year 1438.

Since the Hijri year is shorter, it arrives 10 days ‘earlier’ in relation to the Gregorian calendar, through the seasons. That’s why Ramadan comes around 10 days earlier than the previous year.
