Safar 1441H

  • Posted on: September 29, 2019

Please make a group effort to sight the Hilal on Sunday, September 29, 2019, for the month of Safar 1441

This is an excellent opportunity to easily revive a neglected Sunnah and a forgotten Fardh Kifayah, as:

  • the weather is so pleasant outside,
  • it is a good outing for the whole family.


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 Hilal for Safar 1441 will take place on September 28, 2019, at 2:26 pm EST (18:26 UTC)
