Shawwal 1444H

  • Posted on: April 17, 2023

   السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته 


Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

 

Please make an effort to sight the Hilal on Thursday, April 20, 2023, for the month of Shawwal 1444.

 

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.
