Zul Hijjah 1443AH

  • Posted on: June 28, 2022

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

 

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

 

Please make an effort to sight the Hilal on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, for the month of Zul Hijjah 1443

 

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

  • This is the hilal that decides when Eid ul-Adhā is.
  • It is conveniently during a summer school break, making it easy for the whole family.
  • The weather is pleasant outside.
  • It is a good outing for the family, to teach the next generation about the traditions of our Deen.
  • The chances of sighting are likely in this evening.

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 Zul Hijjah 1443 will take place on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at 10:52 pm EDT (06/29 - 2:52 UTC).

Information about the Hilal for the 29th of Zul Qa'dah, 1443 (Wednesday, June 29, 2022) for locations where CHC Representative Ulama Kiram make regular, organized moonsighting efforts are below.

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