The Holy Month of Ramadan is expected to begin on April 24 and will last approximately 30 days, according to Ibrahim Al Jarwan of the Arab Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences. The Hijri calendar is based on moon sightings and is therefore weather-dependant, however astronomers are able to roughly determine where the months in the Islamic calendar will fall. The Shawwal crescent is expected to appear on Friday May 22, with Eid Al Adha commencing July 31.
Remember, during Ramadan you must avoid eating, drinking and smoking in public, out of respect for those that are fasting. You should also dress more conservatively and refrain from any public displays of affection (though we’re judging you if you don’t already). Office hours will also be reduced by up to two hours in most workplaces.
