Ramadan and Astronomy

05/06/19

“What does the holiest month in Islam have to do with astronomy?”

Every year, Muslims all around the world will fast and refrain from sin for one month to fulfill one of the five pillars of Islam. But did you know that there is a connection to Astronomy? Well, every year Ramadan begins on the sighting of a crescent moon, since the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. This is the relationship between Ramadan and Astronomy.

Ramadan Mubarak!
