This month is of great significance for Muslims as it is believed to be the time when sins are forgiven and virtues are multiplied.

When Does the Ramadan Start in 2024?


The Ramadan begins on March 11 in 2024. The significance of Ramadan for Muslims is immense. It is a holy month in Islam and holds great importance for Muslims. This month is a period heavily devoted to worship practices such as fasting, reading the Quran, praying, and acts of charity. Ramadan is a time of purification and renewal for Muslims. Fasting is an important means of disciplining the self and drawing closer to Allah. The commencement of the Quran's revelation in this month further elevates the importance of Ramadan. The Night of Power, known as Laylat al-Qadr, which is described in the Quran as better than a thousand months, also falls within this month. Ramadan is a time when the sense of unity and solidarity among Muslims is also strengthened. Throughout this month, Muslims come together for fasting, iftar (breaking of fast), and suhoor (pre-dawn meal), enhancing their feelings of camaraderie.

The Ramadan will start in about two months. You can start preparing now to make the most of this blessed month and to seek Allah's pleasure.

When is Laylat al-Qadr in 2024?


In 2024, Laylat al-Qadr, according to the Gregorian calendar, falls on April 5, a Friday. Common believed that Laylatul Qadr occurs on the 27th Night of Ramadan, however many scholars recommend focusing on the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

Laylat al-Qadr is a blessed night when the Quran began to be revealed, described in the Quran as better than a thousand months. On this night, prayers are accepted, sins are forgiven, and repentance is acknowledged. Laylat al-Qadr is an opportunity for purification and renewal for Muslims.

The Quran describes the significance of Laylat al-Qadr as follows:

"Indeed, it is We Who sent this Quran down on the Night of Glory. And what will make you realize what the Night of Glory is? The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months. That night the angels and the holy spirit descend, by the permission of their Lord, for every decreed matter. It is all peace until the break of dawn." (Quran, Al-Qadr, 97:1-5)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) also emphasized the importance of Laylat al-Qadr:

"Whoever prays on Laylat al-Qadr with faith and seeking reward from Allah, their past sins will be forgiven." (Bukhari, Faith, 25, 28, 37)

To make the most of Laylat al-Qadr, one should engage in acts of worship such as fasting, reading the Quran, praying, supplicating, seeking forgiveness, and giving generously in charity. It is always important to seek forgiveness and mercy from Allah, pray, and worship on this night.

When is Eid al-Fitr in 2024?


The fasts have been observed, the Tarawih prayers have been performed, and now it's time for the Eid! In 2024, Eid al-Fitr will begin on April 10, a Wednesday, and end on April 12, a Friday.

Eid al-Fitr is an important event in Islam. It is a day of joy and happiness for Muslims. This eid begins with Muslims performing the Eid prayer after a month of fasting.

Eid al-Fitr is also a day of unity and togetherness. During this festival, Muslims visit relatives, friends, and neighbors, and exchange gifts. It is a festival beloved by children as well. For them, the festival means receiving gifts like sweets, chocolates, and toys.
