Knowing when both Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr will fall is a time of anticipation, that anticipation will grow however as it turns out there are two Ramadans to keep track of by 2030.
This isn’t some new announcement from a government ministry, it’s the one of the natural intricacies that comes with using a lunar calendar.
And Every year you may notice Ramadan goes back every 10-11 days which is why by the time we get to the year 2030 we get Ramadan in Jan then Dec— Minhal Khan (@minhalakhan) July 26, 2019
Hassan Ahmed Al Hariri, chief executive officer of the Dubai Astronomy Group, told Gulf News that observing two Ramadans in one year should not be considered a phenomenon as the lunar month moves forward by 11 days every year.
“Calendars were invented by humans so we could use it as a benchmark and to count the time. People should see the two Ramadans as a natural thing,” he said.
It’s expected that Ramadan will be seen in early January, with Eid Al Fitr in early February, and then Ramadan later in the year right after the festive season in December.
If the current standing rule by the government is untouched by 2030, this will mean that both private and public sector will not only get two Ramadans but two holiday timeslots as well.
