Ramadan likely to occur twice in 2030

People in Oman and around the world who are observing this Ramadan might be required to fast on two occasions in 2030.

Ramadan is likely to occur twice in 2030, owing to differences between the Gregorian and the Islamic/ Hijri calendar, said Dr Sobeih Al Saadi, an astronomer.

Accordingly, those required to fast during Ramadan will do so for 36 days in 2030: 30 days at the beginning of the year, in January, and six days at the end of the year in December.
