Shawwal 1435 Monthly Calendar

Attached Calendar for the Month of Shawwal 1435.

Most of the UK had cloudy conditions on Sunday evening, despite the effort of many people who attempted a sighting, all reported negative sighting. We did however had confirmed sighting reports form the Jamiat ul Ulama of South Africa who after much deliberation and witness scrutinising accepted the sighting of 26 people from 5 different areas of South Africa.


We therefore had 29 days of Ramadhan and the 1st day of Shawwal in the United Kingdom in accordance to the SUNNAH BASED CALENDAR will be from Monday 28th July 2014 Insha Allah.


We would like to put this on record that Wifaq ul Ulama announce all the Islamic months in accordance with the principles laid down by the Holy Shariah. the decision of Wifaq ul Ulama should be an eye opener for those who slander us that we are followers of astronomy, the decision for Shawwal was taken purely on grounds of Shahadah/ testimonies of Moon being sighted by naked eye by a large number of witnesses. (In the Hanafi school  Jamme Ghafeer/large group is needed to testify of a sighting when the skies are clear and two witnesses for the Shawwal moon when the skies are not clear)


None of the 10 official Hilal Committees reported sighting news but despite that Saudi Arabia for this Eid, made a decision before sunset in Makkah. Which is not in accordance with the Sunnah. They did not even wait for news from the 10 official Hilal Committees who are in different locations throughout the Kingdom and once again took the Shadah of  Al-Khodairy their usual witness.


We call upon the Saudi following bodies in the UK and the Darul Ulooms Who for the majority of the months follow the pre Calculated Umm ul Qura Calendar that they also come aboard and come on to a calendar based on the pure Sunnah and lead the masses in accordance with the guidance of the Holy Shariah..

What is Sadaqatul Fitr? (Zakât ul fitr)
(click here to download pdf version)

Ibn Abbâs RA has narrated that Rasûlullâh SAW prescribed Sadaqatul Fitr as an obligatory duty in order to purify those who fast from useless and obscene activities and to provide food for the poor. (Abû Dawûd) 


Sadaqatul Fitr has been stipulated by Rasûlullâh SAW in authentic Ahâdîth. The Sahâbah RA and later the Jurists adapted the stipulations according to the needs of the time. 


Abdullah Ibn Umar RA is reported to have said; Rasûlullâh SAW instructed us to give Sadaqatul Fitr; 1 Sa’ (a measure used at the time of Rasûlullâh SAW) of dates or 1 Sa’ of Barley. Abdullâh Ibn Umar RA mentions that the Sahabâh RA later gave 2 Mud (½ Sa’) of wheat in place of dates and barley. (Bukhari 1511 and Muslim 7232)
