    Men attend the first Friday prayers of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan at the East London Mosque very roughly June 19, 2015 in London, England. (visit http://www.techij.com/2017/03/ramadan-2017-uk-timetable-london-birmingham.html fore more Ramadan month details) (Rob Stothard/Getty Images)

    What epoch does Ramadan 2016 mount happening less tonight in the United States? Ramadan is the month believed to be gone the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. After a month of fasting, Muslims celebrate as soon as Eid al-Fitr.

    Ramadan dates alter all year, and for that observations does Eid al-Fitr.

    The defense that the dates fine-tell all year is because Islam follows a lunar manual. The dates of the lunar manual adjust all year because theres not a set amount of days in the lunar manual. The lunar directory reflects the cycles of the moon, and in the impression of it is compared to or tried to fit into a 12-cycle solar directory (that most of the Western world uses), there are slightly beyond twelve lunations (or moon phases) in a solar year.

    This year for American-Muslims, Ramadan ends at sundown on Wednesday, July 5. This was agreed by the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA), which recognizes astronomical adding taking place as an satisfactory Shari method for determining the dawn of lunar months including the months of Ramadan However, this is a fine-express from their previous obedience, which had Ramadan ending at sundown in Australia ( http://www.waveriders.biz/2017/03/ramadan-2017-australia-calendar-sydney-brisbane.html )upon July 6. This may have been the withdraw to coincide behind the flyer by Saudi Arabia that Eid al-Fitr will opening upon July 6.
