Why does Ramadan date change every year?
Why does the date vary each year? The Islamic calendar is lunar, meaning each month begins with the new astronomical moon. As lunar months are shorter than solar, the Islamic calendar does not correspond with the Gregorian calendar followed in the West and means Ramadan occurs around 11 days earlier every year.
What time do you have to wake up for Ramadan?
Muslims must fast between sunrise and sunset every day in Ramadan. However, they enjoy one meal “pre-dawn” and one after sunset each day. The Suhur is consumed in the morning, as early as 2.30am, in the latter stages of the holy month.

Can you eat during Ramadan?

What time do we wake up for suhoor?
Try to wake up between 30- 60 minutes before the athan for Fajr prayer goes off. This gives you a chance to wake yourself up to be able to actually enjoy the food you are eating.
