You might be wondering what and how Ramadan is in Morocco.



Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It’s the month when the Quran was revealed. Observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of forgiveness-mercy-fasting-praying…

Ramadan can be 30 days or 29 days depending on sighting the new moon. If you are in the middle of nowhere like the Sahara desert and you saw the moon you can get started fasting from tomorrow . But if you didn’t realize the moon. Don’t fast until you see it in the next few days. The holy month of Ramadan changes every year for 13 days .If the Ramadan comes on the 10th of any month in this year, it would be on the 27th of the previous month next year.
Muslims get started Fasting with the first prayer called (Al Fajr)after the meal(Sehur). And they break their fast after sunset, indeed the fourth prayer called (al Maghreb). Originally the fifth prayer had in Al Fajr 4 prayers- the midday prayer called Adohar 4 prayers, noon prayer called al Asar 4 prayers. Al Maghreb time for breakfast 3 prays al Aisha at night 4 prayers plus 3 to end your day prayers. But during the holy month, Muslims pray 10 more prayers called tarawih, totaling 17 prayers. Also on holy month there’s a feast.
