On Thursday, 22 March 2012 (29 Rabiul Thani 1433 AH) many people from throughout UK have attempted to sight the crescent moon (Hilal) of Jumada Al-Ula after sunset. None of the groups were able to sight the Hilal, as most places were cloudy.
We have not received any reliable sighting reports (Muhaqaq-Ruyat-Basari) from any countries east of UK/Morocco either. But, we have received negative sighting report from Morocco Awqaf Ministry.
Therefore, the WifaqUlama have decided that the month of Rabiul Thani 1433 AH will completed 30 days and the month of Jumada Al-Ula 1433 AH will start from Saturday 24 March 2012, Insha-Allah.
