Ramadan is observed by Muslims around the world as a month of fasting to commemorate the “best of times”. This is the month of spiritual reflection, improvement and increased devotion and worship. On 3 May 2019, the Australian National Imam Council announced that the holy month of Ramadan 2019 on the Gold Coast in Australia for this year will begin on 6 May 2019.

This tentative date is contingent on the sighting of the moon of Ramadan, the 9th month in the Islamic calendar. The length of the fasting month varies between 29 and 30 days depending on the sighting of the Shawwal Moon which leads to the awaited festival of Eid al-Fitr on the 1st of Shawwal.
