Ramadan will begin on August 22, 2009
According to the Fiqh Council of North America:
1st of Ramadan will be on Saturday, August 22, 2009
1st of Shawwal (Eid Al-Fitr) will be on Sunday, September 20, 2009
A number of Muslim countries also announced Thursday night that the fasting month will start on Saturday after their legal moon sighting panels failed to prove the beginning of the holy month on Friday. Among these are, Palestinian territories, Indonesia, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Tunisia, Algeria and Iraq.
Muslims in Turkey and the Balkans will be starting Ramadan on Friday, August 21, 2009. Pakistan and some other countries are expected to start Ramadan on August 23, 2009.
Some mosques and communities may observe different criteria for determining the start of the lunar month. Please confirm with your local moon-sighting authorities to determine when to start Ramadan.
Ramadan Kareem to all!
We wish all believers the best blessings of Ramadan. May Allah accept all our worship and may He help us rejuvenate our faith. May He help all of us share in the joy of this month with our family, friends and neighbors.

Political psychopath Muammar Al-Qadafi decides to break with Muslim Tradition and started Ramadan on Friday:(
Basically this political freak decided to declare yawm shak (day of doubt) Which is the last day of Sha'baan as 1st day of Ramadan.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Muslim scolars declare fasting on Yawm Shaq as HARAAM!
Hasbia Allahu wa ni'ma lwakeel
