Ramadan for next 9 years expected amidst winter: Al-Ujairi

Al-Ujairi Scientific Center has announced that the Crescent of the next month of Ramadan will not be visible in the sky of Kuwait, indicating that Ramadan this year will bring a spring atmosphere as it coincides with the winter season for the next 9 years.

According to astronomical calculations, Ramadan next year will fall in winter, and it will return to coincide with the days of Al-Murabbaniyya in 4 other years, starting from 2028. During this time, the weather will be moderate and cold until 2034, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The beginning of Ramadan during the winter season is characterized by different seasons, including the predominance of night hours over daylight hours, resulting in shorter fasting periods that typically occur during the summer months.

The month of Ramadan for the year 1445 AH – 2024 AD will be the last Ramadan in the spring season, and it will return in this season again after 27 years.

Regarding the sighting of the crescent of the month of Ramadan this year in Kuwait, the center confirmed that it was impossible to see it according to Al-Ajiri’s special criterion related to the period of the crescent’s stay in the sky, its height, declination, and other factors.

This year, the fasting hours will reach 13 hours and 10 minutes, with the dawn call to prayer at exactly 44 minutes in the morning, decreasing by one minute with each new day. The Maghrib call to prayer will be at exactly 5 minutes past 5:00 in the evening.
