Even for those who are well acquainted with the traditions and customs of Islam and the practices of observance of Ramadan, there are some interesting facts about the holy month of Ramadan that can surprise you.

  • It’s not surprising that people in different localities break their daytime fast at different times, because the exact time of sunset is not the same. But when Iftar’s time is different for those in the same building, it’s truly unique. But after all, we are talking about a unique building, the tallest structure in the world – the Burj Khalifa. The height of the building is 829.8 meters, it has 163 floors. Those who live on floors above the 80th break the fast two minutes later than those who follow the sun from ground level. And those who are on one of the floors above the 150th are waiting for Iftar for an additional three minutes. Since they can see the sun at that time, as for the observer on the lower floors, it has already disappeared beyond the horizon.
 
  • The word ‘Ramadan’ today is not only the name of the month, but it has also become one of the most popular names for boys among Muslims. Among its meanings, the “Born during Ramadan” is the most common.

 

  • All days of Ramadan are for fasting. But if a Muslim interrupts the fasting for any permitted reason, then he can observe the fasting at another time for the day that was missed.

 

  • If it happens that a person dies during Ramadan, then one of his family continues to fast in his favor for a certain number of days.

 

  • The beginning of Ramadan is shifted annually back 11 or 12 days a year. At the same time, it is impossible to predict the exact start date of the next Ramadan. Due to the fact that the Islamic calendar is based on the lunar cycle and contains 354 days, 11 days less than the solar Gregorian calendar, for Ramadan it will take approximately 33 years and five days to complete the full 12-month cycle of the Gregorian calendar.

 

Dua

O Allah, on this day, I ask You for what pleases You, and I seek refuge in You from what displeases You, I ask You to grant me the opportunity to obey You and not disobey You, O One who is generous with those who ask.
