Zul Qadah 1442 AH

  • Posted on: June 08, 2021

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته 

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam,

Please make an effort to sight the Hilal on Thursday, June 10, 2021, for the month of Zul Qa'dah 1442

 

Take your important part in this blessed Fard ala al-Kifayah effort. 

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.

The birth of the Hilal for Zul Qa'dah 1442 will take place on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 6:52 am EDT (10:52 UTC)

Information about the Hilal for the 29th of Shawwal 1442 (Thursday, June 10, 2021) 

for locations where CHC Representative Ulama Kiram make regular, organized moonsighting efforts.
