Most of UK was covered with cloud and there was rain in some places, so despite the effort of many people who had attempted the sighting on Thursday evening 27th October, there was no reported sighting in the UK. However we have received news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) in writing from Majlis ul Ulama of South Africa.
We therefore had 29 days of Dhul Qa’dah and the 1st day of Dhul Hijjah will be on Friday 28th October 2011 Insha Allah. Eid ul Adha 1432 will be on Sunday 6th November 2011 Insha Allah.
Saudi Arabia also had 29 days of Dhul Qa’dah and have also commenced the Month of Dhul Hijjah from Friday based on the pre calculated Umm ul Qura Calendar.
