Rabi'ul Awwal 1441 AH

  • Posted on: October 27, 2019

Please make a group effort to sight the Hilal on Monday, October 28, 2019, for the month of Rabiul Awwal 1441

 

This is an excellent opportunity to easily revive a neglected Sunnah and a forgotten Fardh Kifayah.

 

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.
