We had clear skies in the South of UK and heavy clouds in the North, despite the effort of many people who had attempted the sighting on Friday evening 25th November, there was no reported sighting in the UK. We have not received news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) anywhere to the East of UK or Morocco.
We therefore completed 30 days of Dhul Hijjah and the 1st day of Muharram and Islamic New Year 1433 will be on Sunday 27th November 2011 Insha Allah.
Saudi Arabia had 29 days of Dhul Hijjah and have commenced Muharram from Saturday 26th November based on the pre calculated Umm ul Qura Calendar. Commencing the Islamic Year incorrectly once again!
