Muslims to observe two Ramadan in the year 2030
LAHORE – Nothing is 100 percent accurate but it is most likely that the clear position of the moon from a given geographic position on Earth can be predicted to very high precision over the next few years.
Similarly, astronomers forecasted that Ramadan and Eidul Fitr will occur twice in the year 2030 taking place in the first and last month of the year. Yes, it sounds bizarre, but it’s real, even though it will mean two periods of fasting within one year.
The rationale for this odd occurrence is that the Islamic year is shorter than the western year and Islamic dates go after the lunar cycle. Ramadan is likely to start on April 13 in most countries and it will get earlier and earlier in later years.
Meanwhile, the holy month is likely to begin on April 14 in Pakistan. Pakistan's Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain predicted that the holy month of Ramadan is likely to commence in the South Asian country from April 14 (Wednesday).
The moon of Ramzam , 1442 AH will be sighted on the evening of April 13, 2021, and the first Ramzan will be on the 14th April, 2021 ( InshaAllah). The moon will be clearly sighted in Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar and Karachi.— Ministry of Science & Technology (@MinistryofST) April 3, 2021
