Safar 1442 AH

  • Posted on: September 16, 2020

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

 

Please make a group effort to sight the Hilal on Thursday, September 17, 2020, for the month of Safar 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 Hilal for Safar 1442 will take place on September 17, 2020, at 7:00 AM EST.

Details for major cities on the 29th of Muharram, Thursday, September 17, 2020, are given below.
