Rabi ul Awwal 1442 AH

  • Posted on: October 16, 2020

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

Please make a group effort to sight the Hilal on Saturday, October 17, 2020, for the month of Rabi'ul Awwal 1442

Take your important part in this blessed effort. If we all try to sight the moon in our respective vicinities, this will automatically negate false reports. 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 Moon for Rabi'ul Awwal 1442 will take place on October 16, 2020, at 3:31 PM EST.
