Rabiul Thani 1442 AH

  • Posted on: November 14, 2020

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

Please try to sight the Hilal on Sunday, November 15, 2020, for the month of Rabi'ul Thani 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 Thani 1442 will take place on November 15, 2020, at 12:07 AM EST (05:07 UTC).
