There Will Be Two Ramadan Months in 2030

By 2030, it will fall in January. But because the Islamic year is shorter than the western year, it will also come round again at the end of that year.


Each year Ramadan moves back approximately 10 to 11 days as per the lunar calendar, meaning in the coming years Ramadan will be edging closer and closer to the beginning of the Gregorian calendar year.


January 6th to February 4th, 2030 will be the first spell of Ramadan, followed by December 26th, 2030 to 24 January the second spell. Two Ramadan months in one years.

The reason for this unusual occurrence is that Islamic Calendar follows the lunar cycle (cycle of moon) not the Gregorian calendar (cycle of sun). A lunar year has 354 days, shorter than the 365 days of solar years.
