What Is Ramadan?

In the Islamic calendar, Ramadan marks the month when the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which means “scorching heat” in Arabic, is observed by abstaining from eating and drinking throughout the daylight hours.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam – the fundamental rules that all Muslims follow – along with the Shahadah (declaration of faith), Salat (prayer) and  Zakat (charity).

Muslim fasts allow them to experience the sufferings of others while offering the Salat, which gives thanks to Allah during Ramadan. Those fasting are encouraged to spend time reading the Quran, and the sacred text is recited again during Tarawih, which are special prayers held after Isha throughout the month.

What is the date of Ramadan 2023?

Ramadan has always been associated with a certain amount of contemplation and mystique, despite the fact that the Islamic calendar (Hijri Calendar) comprises 12 months dependent
on the sighting of the moon.

As Islamic scholars closely monitor certain sightings associated with the appearance of the new moon, they determine the exact date of Ramadan’s beginning under the cover of the night

The start date of Ramadan varies from region to region typically by one day. So the answer to the question, “When is Ramadan 2023?” is that it depends on where you live.

It is expected that Ramadan 2023 will begin on Thursday, 23 March 2023 and last 30 days, meaning that it will end on Thursday, 20 April 2023, according to the International Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences in the UAE.

For those living in the UK, Ramadan 2023 will begin on Wednesday, 22 March 2023, and end on Friday, 21 April 2023. However, these dates are only tentative and may vary based upon
moon sightings.

How to Wish Somebody a Happy Ramadan in 2023

Islam’s scriptures suggest that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) told his Companions when Ramadan was about to start and urged them to take advantage of it. In his report, Abu Hurairah
said, “The Messenger (PBUH) of Allah SWT said, “There has come a blessed month named Ramadan. Allah SWT has made fasting obligatory (this month). The gates of Paradise will be
opened, while the gates of Hell will be locked and the devils will be chained. There is a night in it that is better than a thousand months, and whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived.” (Reported by al-Nisaa’i, 4/129; Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1/490)

Ramadan Mubarak

Wishing someone Ramadan Mubarak is the traditional way of saying Happy Ramadan and showing an interest in Islamic culture. Ramadan Mubarak is an Arabic term that translates
literally as “Happy Ramadan” and “May your Ramadan be blessed.”

The simplest way to wish your Muslim friend in an English-speaking country is to say “Ramadan Mubarak” even if you hear different versions around the world.

It is acceptable to say “Ramadan Mubarak” back to a Muslim friend or to say “Khair Mubarak” if he or she wishes you “Ramadan Mubarak” as well.

Ramadan Kareem

The Arabic term Ramadan Kareem, which means “Have a generous Ramadan,” is pronounced “Ram-ah-dan Kah-reem.” In this phrase, one wishes for their loved ones to have a happy,
healthy, and meaningful Ramadan.

“Ramadan Kareem” is appropriately responded to with “Allahu Akram,” meaning “God is more generous.” Some Islamic scholars believe it is more important to use the greeting before or
after Ramadan and not during the holy month.

What Do You Reply When Someone Says, Ramadan Mubarak?

As the sacred month of Ramadan is kicking off, Muslims exchange a greeting called Ramadan Mubarak. It literally means “the beginning of a blessed celebration.” “Ramadan Mubarak”
also translates to “Happy Ramadan.”

To respond to someone who greets you with “Ramadan Mubarak” you can either say “Khair Mubarak,” reaffirming the greeting or “JazakAllah Khair,” which means, “May Allah SWT
reward you with goodness.”
