When is Ramadan 2020? U.S. Start Date, Prayer Times and Calendar Details


Web Team : New York
According to the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects, determining the start of the holy month is dependent on the physical sighting of a new moon. The present of Ramadan should be observed after the sunset of the 29th day of Sha'ban–the month preceding Ramadan. If the moon is not seen, then Ramadan starts after 30 days of Sha'ban.

This year, the holy month of fasting will begin on the evening of April 23, and will end on the evening of May 23, in the U.S. Daytime fasting for Ramadan starts and ends at different times and runs for different lengths across the world due to sunrise and sunset being governed by latitude. The below graph, with data from islamicfinder.org and provided by Statista, shows the different fasting times across the globe.

The holy month lasts 30 days and nights. Its end is very much determined the same way as its beginning; by sighting the new moon. The month that succeeds Ramadan is called Shawwal.

The prayer times throughout the month in the U.S. are the following—data provided by Islamic Finder.

At the end of Ramadan is a celebration known as Eid al-Fitr, which takes place during the first three days of Shawwal. During this time, official or private parties are held, with the giving of presents, as well as visiting relatives' graves.

Is Ramadan a Federal Holiday?

The holy month of fasting is not recognized as a national holiday, however, as many restaurants, cafes, and bars have closed their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this might impact opening hours for those offering food delivery.

For those working from home, some companies might also support employees who observe Ramadan. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, "Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for religious practices that don't cause an undue hardship on the company."

Some accommodations they mention include:

Adjusting work hours to help employees' dehydration
Offer light-duty jobs or job swaps for those who are fasting
Allow flexible breaks
Offer a place for prayer
Find a spot where fasters can nap during breaks because fasting makes some people tired
Let people use vacation days during Ramadan and especially during Eid al-Fitr.
