The official Ramadan 2020 dates have just been announced for Bahrain.
Ramadan will start tomorrow (Friday, April 24) and Eid Al-Fitr is expected to fall on May 24.
Each year, the start and end of Ramadan are announced following observations by religious experts.
They are subject to change as they are determined by the sighting of a new moon.
Ramadan is an important time in the Islamic Calendar, when Muslims fast (also known as sawm) from sunrise to sunset for approximately 30 days. Doing so is one of the five pillars of Islam.
Working hours will be reduced during Ramadan and the school day is generally shortened to five hours, even when distance learning.
