Dhul Qadah 1435 Monthly Calendar

Attached Calendar for the Month of Dhul Qadah 1435.

Most of the UK had heavy rain on Monday evening, so all the groups who attempted a sighting, all reported negative sighting. We have not received any news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) from anywhere to the East of UK. Therefore we completed 30 days of Shawwal and the 1st day of Dhul Qa’dah in the United Kingdom in accordance to  the SUNNAH BASED CALENDAR will be from Wednesday 27th August 2014 Insha Allah.


Saudi Arabia on occasions of Dhul Qa'dah normally follow the Umm ul Qura calendar, however they seem to be uncertain on what to do this year as conflicting reports are coming out from Saudi Arabia. According to a calendar hung in Masjid Al Nabbawi Al Shareef it was the 1st of Dhul Qa’dah on Tuesday 26th of August. According to Umm ul Qura Calendar it is the 1st today. This appears as though it is an attempt to avoid Yawmul Arafah falling on Friday as was scheduled per the Umm ul Qura Calendar. We sincerely hope and pray this is not the case.


Unfortunately the Saudi following CMC in the UK are silent on the issue. THIS NEWS IS RATHER STRANGE AS THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF 1ST OF Shawwal (Eid ul Fitr) was made before Maghrib on the 29th of Ramadhan!


On Monday the 25th of August there has been NO Reports of sighting from anywhere in the world, so we are anxiously waiting for confirmation of the Saudi decision which Saudi following bodies should have received if, as they claim they have direct contact with the Supreme Court with witness statements and their names as demanded from us on the occasion of Eid ul Fitr.

 

Sighting of the Hilal For Dhul Qadah 1435

Many people throughout the country attempted to sight the crescent of Dhul Qadah 1435 but due to rain and cloudy weather all reported negative sighting.

We have NOT received news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) from anywhere else.  We have therefore decided that the month of Shawwal will be of 30 days and the 1st of Dul Qadah 1435 in the United Kingdom will be Wednesday 27th August 2014 Insha Allah.

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..
