Ramadan 1442 AH

  • Posted on: April 11, 2021

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

 

Please make an effort to sight the Hilal on Monday, April 12, 2021, for the month of Ramadan 1442. 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.

Details for major cities on the 29th of Sha’ban, (Monday, April 12, 2021) are below. 

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