The Dates of Ramadan

“to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.” (Acts 26:18, NLT)

This year most of the countries in the world will start their Ramadan (the fasting month) on August 1-30, 2011. The dates of Ramadan always change every year, here’s why:

The dates for Ramadan are established according to the Islamic lunar calendar of 354 days. Starting 11 days earlier each year, it takes about 33 years for the Islam calendar to go through all the seasons.

Because of the changing nature of the Islamic year the 2011 booklet is actually our 20th edition. There have been 20 Islamic lunar years since the beginning of “30 Days” in March 1993. This is the year 1432 of the Islamic lunar calendar.

(C) 30-Days of Prayer for the Muslim World

Our Muslim friends will use this whole month to meditate their Al-quran, ask forgiveness for their sins, and longing for the Way, The Truth and the Life – the guidance to the right path, which only can be found through Isa Almasih. There’s one website that provides all information and knowledge about Isa and Islam, you can visit their website here. All you need to know you can find them on that website.

Would you join me to pray for the Muslims in the world this month?
