Muharram 1444H

  • Posted on: July 27, 2022

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

 

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

 

Please make an effort to sight the Hilal on Thursday, July 28, 2022, for the month of Muharram 1444

This is an excellent opportunity to easily revive a neglected Sunnah and a forgotten fardh kifayah:

  • This is the hilal that decides the beginning of the New Islamic Year.
  • It is conveniently during the summer break, making it easy for the whole family.
  • The weather is pleasant outside.
  • It is a good outing for the family, to teach the next generation about the traditions of our Deen.

Alhamdulillah, by the joint effort of all the Ulama and great cooperation throughout the States, we have revived this forgotten Sunnah of moonsighting throughout the year in many localities, all across the nation.

The birth of the Hilal for Muharram 1444 will take place on Thursday, July 28, 2022 at 1:55 pm EDT (17:55 UTC).

Information about the Hilal for the 29th of Zul Hijjah, 1443 (Thursday, July 28, 2022) for locations where CHC Representative Ulama Kiram make regular, organized moonsighting efforts are below.

(All times are in their respective local time zones.)
