Ramadan does not start on the same day all over the world. For the reason of geographical situation, Ramadan date is different in different countries. This is because of the circumambulation of the moon from North to South. Because of that, the schedule of Ramadan in India, USA, Malaysia varies with that of Bangladesh.
Naturally, the first Ramadan comes in Malaysia and America a day before in Bangladesh. First Ramadan in India starts on the same day as in Bangladesh. But sometimes there are some exceptions too. Our discussion today is about the first Ramadan in India, America, and Malaysia. So now let us know about when Ramadan is going to start in different countries.
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is basically the name of a month of the Arabic calendar. However, the importance of this month is much more than that of other months for Muslims. This is because holy fasting is celebrated in the month of Ramadan. Allah Almighty has forbidden to eat and drink at day time during the holy month of Ramadan for the Muslims. Until sunrise to sunset, Muslims refrain them from eating anything. At night, they pray ‘Taraweeh prayer’.
The blessing is much more in Ramadan than other months. At this month, the reward is 70 times more for every prayer and ‘Ibadah’. Besides, the torrent of the grave remains stopped in the month of Ramadan. Ramadan ends when the moon of Shawwal month appears. Ramadan, the most sacred and blessed month for the Muslims, will come in front of us in a few days. In a single word, Ramadan is a very sacred month for Muslims.
When is the First Day of Ramadan 2019
There are no more days left for Ramadan to come in 2019. In the meantime, all the Muslim have started to talk about when the first Ramadan this year is going to be starting. Some people have started predicting the possible date of first Ramadan. Since the month of Ramadan is related to the moon, it is not possible to say about the exact date. Only Allah Almighty knows best when the Ramadan of 2019 will come to us.
However, though it is not possible to say the exact date, it is easy to guess when the first Ramadan will be starting assuming two possible dates. If Shaban month ends in 29 days, then the first Ramadan will be on 6th May. You have to start fasting on 7th May after having Sehari. If Shaban month ends in 30 days, then the first Ramadan will be on 7th May. You have to start fasting on 8th May after having Sehari.
- If Shaban month ends in 29 days, the first Ramadan will be on 6th May and fasting will be started from 7th May.
- If Shaban month ends in 30 days, the first Ramadan will be on 7th May and fasting will be started from 8th May.
