Ramadan in 2014 will start on Saturday, the 28th of June and will continue for 30 days until Sunday, the 27th of July.

Based on sightability in North America, in 2014 Ramadan will start in North America a day later - on Sunday, the 29th of June.

Note that in the Muslim calendar, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Ramadan on the sunset of Friday, the 27th of June.

When is Ramadan in 2014?
Ramadan in 2014 will start on Saturday, the 28th of June and will continue for 30 days until Sunday, the 27th of July.

Based on sightability in North America, in 2014 Ramadan will start in North America a day later - on Sunday, the 29th of June.

Note that in the Muslim calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Ramadan on the sunset of Friday, the 27th of June.

Although Ramadan is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar, the date on the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, since the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. This difference means Ramadan moves in the Gregorian calendar approximately 11 days every year. The date of Ramadan may also vary from country to country depending on whether the moon has been sighted or not.

The dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America for the celebration of Ramadan. Note that these dates are based on astronomical calculations to affirm each date, and not on the actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes. This approach is accepted by many, but is still being hotly debated.

Sunday, June 29 will be the first day of Ramadan in Tunisia

The Mufti of the Republic announced that Sunday, June 29 will be the first day of Ramadan for this year 2014.

Hamda Said, Mufti of the Republic announced that the visibility of the crescent was not this Friday, June 27, 2014.

Thus, Saturday, June 28, 2014 will be the last day of the month of Sha'baan and Sunday, June 29 will be the first day of Ramadan 1435 AH.

Hi Truly mou, hope that you are having a wonderful time!
If you go to the hotels in Nabeul, you will see quite a few Tunisian's eating in public. I don't envy those that are waiting for a taxi today.
Hope that it is not too hot for those that are fasting. I will be there when the kids start getting their boni boni's out;)
