Weather of Arabia - Muslims all over the world used to receive the month of Ramadan with great eagerness once a year, but astronomical calculations show the possibility of repeating the month of Ramadan twice in one Gregorian year, so when will that be?
According to the Gregorian calendar and astronomical calculations, the year 2030 will witness an event that does not recur often, which is receiving the month of Ramadan twice , so that it comes with the beginning of the year 2030, specifically on January 5, and corresponds to the Hijri year 1451, then the month of Ramadan comes in the same Gregorian year. 2030, again on December 26, corresponding to the Hijri year 1452.
Fasting days in 2030 will exceed 30 days, as they will be 30 days at the beginning of the year, and 6 days at the end .
In the following lines, we will learn why the month of Ramadan is repeated twice in some years:
The lunar year is the year that depends on the phases of the moon, and the total number of days in 12 months is approximately 354 days. Therefore, the Islamic lunar calendar moves back approximately 11 days each year compared to the regular Gregorian calendar.
Because of the difference between the sum of the days of the lunar year and the Gregorian year, the first day of Ramadan, which is the ninth month in the lunar year (Hijri calendar), moves backward by about 11 days each year, and this explains why we fast in different seasons, we may fast in winter in one year And in the summer of another year. The cycle of Ramadan is renewed every 33 years.
Since the Ramadan cycle is renewed every 33 years, it is expected that the month of Ramadan will come twice again after the year 2030 by the year 2063 AD .
