Shawwal 1443 AH

  • Posted on: April 29, 2022

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

 

Please make an effort to sight the Eid al Fitr Hilal on Saturday, April 30, 2022, for the month of Shawwal 1443.

 

Take your important part in this blessed effort. Since the Eid al Fitr moon sighting criteria is different from that of Ramadan, the Shariah requires shahadah, NOT mere Khabr (news).

Alhamdulillah, by the joint effort of the Ulama and the tremendous cooperation from brothers and sisters throughout the States, we have revived this forgotten Sunnah of moonsighting throughout the year in many localities, all across the nation.

We make a humble appeal to all community members to report ALL efforts, both positive or negative, to the Central Hilal Committee. Please include the location, exact time, number of people who saw and the total number who tried, the location of the crescent in the sky, and the orientation of the crescent.

***Information About the Hilal***

 

The birth of the Hilal for Shawwal 1443 will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at 4:28 pm EST (20:28 UTC)

 

Details for major cities on the 29th of Ramadan 1443 (Saturday, April 30, 2022) are below. 

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

JazaakAllah Khair,

Central Hilal Committee (CHC)
