When is Ramadan in 2010?

Posted on 08/11/2010 5:55:53 AM PDT by judylibby

Ramadan in 2010 will start on Wednesday, the 11th of August and will continue for 30 days until Thursday, the 9th of September.

Based on sightability in North America, in 2010 Ramadan will start in North America a day later - on Thursday, the 12th of August.

Note that in the Muslim calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Ramadan on the sunset of Tuesday, the 10th of August.

Although Ramadan is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar, the date on the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, since the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. This difference means Ramadan moves in the Gregorian calendar approximately 11 days every year. The date of Ramadan may also vary from country to country depending on whether the moon has been sighted or not.

The dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America for the celebration of Ramadan. Note that these dates are based on astronomical calculations to affirm each date, and not on the actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes. This approach is accepted by many, but is still being hotly debated.

Time to grill me up some Pork Chops, in honor of this day. I think I’ll draw pictures of Mo in the BBQ sauce, on each chop, and wash it all down with an ice cold beer.

So?? zero's relentless vacation schedule is well documented. Muslims typically do not vacation during Ramadan, so, IMO, the fact that another of his vacations occurs during Ramadan is more coincidence than anything else.

For thirty days! So they celebrate their Iftar feast day on September 10, eating goat guts and whatever, only one day away from the date in infamy that these scum created.

And Pelosi kisses up to these barbarians, and Zer0 almost goes orgasmic listening to the evening muzzie chant.

Total disgust!
