Ramadan 2024

Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is a time of spiritual reflection, increased devotion, and community for Muslims around the world, including Bangladesh. This year, Ramadan is expected to begin on Monday, March 11th, 2024, subject to the official sighting of the crescent moon.

Preparing for Ramadan:

  • Spiritual Preparation: Muslims may increase their prayers, recite the Quran more frequently, and engage in self-reflection.

  • Food Preparation: Families may stock up on groceries and prepare special dishes for Sehari (pre-dawn meal) and Iftar (evening meal).
  • Community Building: Mosques often host special programs and lectures throughout Ramadan, fostering a sense of community and shared experience.
