Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims, is a time of fasting, prayer and spiritual reflection. Each year, the dates of this month of fasting vary according to the Islamic lunar calendar. In 2024, the year 1445 of the Hijri calendar, Ramadan will begin on a specific date but which has yet to be confirmed. It will extend over a defined period and end with Eid al-Fitr celebrations. In this article you will find in detail the significant moments of Ramadan for 2024.

Ramadan 2024 will begin on Monday, March 11, 2024 marking the first day of the holy month for Muslims across the world. This date is determined by the sighting of the new moon, an event that varies from year to year. According to the French Council of Muslim Worship (CFCM) the conjunction of the new moon of Ramadan 1445H will take place on March 10, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. (Paris time). Worshipers mark this day by beginning their daily fast at dawn, before breaking the fast at sunset with the Iftar meal. If you are looking for recipe ideas, don’t miss our selection for Ramadan.

Ramadan will extend over a period of one month from March 11. This month of fasting is a period of devotion where Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and engaging in impure acts from dawn until sunset.

Ramadan 2024 will end with the observation of the new moon on April 9, 2024. This date marks the start of the celebrations from l’Aïd al-Fitr, the feast of breaking the fast. Muslims celebrate this occasion with special prayers at the mosque, exchange of gifts, festive meals and acts of charity towards those less fortunate.

Muslims generally break their fast at sunset, called Iftar, with an often festive and family meal. Among the most popular dishes are dates, which are traditionally the first food eaten to break the fast, followed by various soups, salads, bricks… Before dawn, before the start of the daily fast, they have a meal called Suhoor to help them hold on during the fasting day. These meals mark moments of conviviality and spirituality for the faithful throughout the holy month of Ramadan. Meal times vary depending on geographic location and the cycle of the sun. Like the days lengthening by a few minutes every day until the summer solstice, prayer times and fasting times differ from one day to another and even from one region to another in France. There is a slight gap between East and West.
