Shawwal 1436 Monthly Calendar

Attached Calendar for the Month of Shawwal 1436.

Despite the efforts of Many people around the Country, none were able to sight the Hilal and all reported negative sighting from the UK. We also received no news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) from the Ministry of Awqaf in Morocco in writing or from anywhere to the east of UK. Therefore we completed 30 days of Ramadhan and 1st day of Shawwal was on Saturday 18th July 2015 in accordance to the SUNNAH BASED CALENDAR Insha Allah.

Saudi Arabia had 29 days of Ramadhan and commenced the Month of Shawwal from Friday 17th July based on erroneous sighting claims by the usual witnesses but in reality to coincide with the PRE CALCULATED UMM UL QURA CALENDAR. All 9 official committees in Saudi Arabia reported negative sighting on Thursday evening.

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)
