Saudi astronomer Khaled Al-Zaqaq revealed that the world will fast the holy month of Ramadan twice during 2030.
Al-Zaqaq stated in a video clip, which he posted on his Twitter account, yesterday that the world will fast two Ramadans in one year in 2030, and this happens in the Gregorian year and not in the Hijri year.
He also indicated that this is repeated once every 33 years, as it happened in 1965 and 1997, it will happen in 2030, and it will be repeated in 2063.
He pointed out that in the year 1451 AH, Ramadan begins on January 5, 2030, and in the year 1452 AH begins on December 26, 2030, which means that we will fast 36 days in 2030, including 30 days for the year 1451 and 6 days for 1452, according to him.
He pointed out that Ramadan comes within the lunar year, which has a duration of 354 days, while the seasons follow the solar year system and its duration is 365 days, and the difference between them is 11 days.
