Islamic Monthly Declarations & Announcements for 1440
1440 Monthly Announcements
It was cloudy in most parts of Britain. Moon was sighted Touloun & La Rochelle in France, in Morocco and South Africa. Wifaqul Ulama have therefore decided that the Islamic month of Muharram 1440 will begin after sunset from Tuesday, the 11th of September 2018.
Wifaqul Ulama together and in consultation with Batley Moon Sighting Committee make the decision for the start of Islamic Months based on Moonsighting in UK (primary) and Morocco (secondary). Please note that the decision is not necessarily based on Morocco (monthly). Department of Islamic Affairs officially notifies the British Ulama by fax monthly and a copy of the fax for this month can be viewed here, provided as courtesy by Batley Moon Sighting Committee.
