Despite the efforts of many people throughout the country we have received negative reports from the UK. We have not received news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) from anywhere to the East of UK. Therefore we will complete 30 days of Dhul Qa’dah and the 1st day of Dhul Hijjah in the UK will be on Friday 26th September 2014 in accordance to the SUNNAH BASED CALENDAR and Eid ul Adha will be from Sunday 05th October 2014 Insha Allah.
Once again Saudi Arabia have taken erroneous sighting claims of 1 or 2 witnesses and commenced the Month of Dhul Hijjah from Thu 25th September. We had members from Wifaq ul Ulama who tried to observe from Makkah and reported negative sighting. The 10 Official Hilal Committees in Saudi Arabia also reported negative sighting.
The fact that In India and Pakistan where actual sighting takes place throughout the year could not sight the Crescent even on Thursday is something to ponder over which suggests they have erred once again in starting the month according to Ummul Qura Calendar! How can there be a 2 day difference of the Hilal in nearby countries(?) This is against the system that Allah has created. May Allah SWT guide us all on Haq.
